How-To Install Push Catches


Mark out the location of the push catch on your cabinet

For a double door cabinet, use a square ruler to mark the location (approximately 25mm from the centre of the doors). For a single door cabinet, this will be approximately 25mm from the inner edge of the cabinet, on the opposite side to the hinges.

Mark 20mm back from the front of the cabinet on the locations you have marked

This gives you the location of the front screw on the adapter plate



Using your markers, install the adapter plates using the supplied screws

The adapter plate has arrows, which point to the front of the cabinet

Click the adapter plate cover into place

Ensure the ridges at the back, and the logo at the front.

Slide the push catch mechanism in

Ensure you complete this on all adapter plates.

Place the metal magnetic pad against the push catch

Ensure to remove the tape revealing the sticky side facing out.

Close the door

The magnet will stick to the inside of your door, aligned with the push catch.
