Steel offers a highly attractive target for magnets to attach, allowing you to easily create magnetic latches, box closures, fasteners, and catches. For best results, we recommend using a steel disc/plate that is slightly larger than the magnet itself.
Steel discs are popular in premium product packaging, corrugated boxes, and other scrapbook/paper crafts. Using one magnet and one steel disc/plate instead of two magnets both saves on cost and makes installation easier as you don't have to match up the north and south poles of the opposing magnets.
If you can't find the size of steel disc or plate that you need, contact us and we'll be happy to help. We offer custom size steel discs and plates and can work with you to deliver something that fits your needs.
