I currently have the following door catch on my van which now needs to be replaced as it's not holding the door any longer.

Door Catch

 

I have seen these magnetic ones on the Swifts currently been imported, which work very well. Priced one today R 679.00 which is way too much for two magnets in a plastic housing yell

What other solutions are available. I would prefer the magnetic type but not at that cost.

Brian, you can find the similar types at McNaughtans at a very good price.

Brian if you want to DIY perhaps these might also work as used on cupboards.

There are various magnets available from www.mantech.co.za at below R5 each. Most have a hole in the middle to mount.
