Minute Tips: Securing RV cabinet doors

When I made the drawers for our tall cabinet I intended to use push-to-open drawer slides to prevent the drawers from smashing the door open when on the road.  Well, I ordered the wrong slides and instead of returning them and waiting for the slides I wanted I decided to use what I had.  I was hoping the spring loaded cabinet door catch would keep everything put, but was pretty sure I’d be dealing with this down the road.

When the drawers aren’t loaded all the way everything stays closed just fine, but when we have them loaded up for longer trips the weight slams the drawers into the door and they blast open.  While on out trip to Tennessee we made a pit stop at Home Depot to pickup some magnetic catches to help the door hold those drawers in place.  I ended up picking up two heavy duty magnetic catches for the task and left them in the cabinet for a month and a half and it turns out you need to install them for them to work.  The time has finally come to install them giving us our 2nd Minute Tips video, so check it out below.
