  • 1 Retainer bottom
  • 2 Barrel nuts
  • 1 Small magnet set (Large flaps only)
  • 2 Screws
  • 3/16 (or 5mm) Brad point drill bit


  • Phillips head drill bit

Please read instructions & notes thoroughly before installation.

Step 1 Remove the Retainer Bottom

  • Pull on the retainer bottom to detach it from your flap. The magnets should be in the correct position when you remove the retainer bottom. However, if they fall out of the flap, you will need to reorient them in the appropriate direction.
  • If your magnets fall out of the flap: realign them correctly by sticking them to your strike. Then, position the magnets within the flap so that they will be attracted to the strike. The number and position of the magnets will vary depending on the size of your flap. Review the diagram for possible configurations.
  • For size Large flaps: switch out the long magnets in your flap with the shorter magnets provided. Make sure that the new magnets are correctly attracted to the strike magnets.

Step 2 Snap On Your New Retainer Bottom

  • Attach the new retainer bottom by pushing it onto the bottom of your flap.

Step 3 Drill Through the Flap

  • Using a drill with a 3/16 (5mm) Brad point drill bit, drill through the small hole on the left side of your retainer bottom into your flap. Only drill halfway through the flap. Do not drill all the way through.
  • Repeat for the remaining holes on the retainer bottom. There are two holes located on each side of the flap.
  • The holes on both sides of the flap should connect.

Step 4 Push the Barrels into the Flap

  • On one side of the flap, push both of the barrels into the holes you drilled.

Step 5 Install the Screws Into the Flap

  • Flip the flap over. Using a Phillips head screwdriver, screw the two screws through the remaining two holes. Tighten them until they are snug.
