    Hi

    I have bifold doors in place with the magnet to hold the door open set in the middle (going by what manufacturer set out), but the door comes away from the magnet when even slightly windy. A second magnet can’t be placed nearer to the end of the door because of the restriction with the handle.

    I’m thinking I could add stronger magnets to the existing door magnet that is there now. Has anyone tried this before, and if so could they share what circular magnets they used and how they fixed them. Obviously drilling into the ones there now will just break them, however somehow ‘sticking’ them on would work.

    Thanks.

    If you can take out your magnet and measure it, there are higher strength magnets that can be sourced.

    Ok thanks. I think it may be encased but I will check.
