How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Attach First Magnet

    To start using your Monkey Magnets, pick up one that's emblazoned with a monkey's face and peel the red backing off the back of the magnet. By doing so, you'll reveal sticky white adhesive. Stick the magnet in an area of your choosing, such as the inside of a cabinet or a chest of drawers, or on the edge of a doorframe. Your second magnet will later attach itself to this one to help you close your chosen cabinet, drawer, or door. These magnets can be attached either horizontally or vertically.

  2. Secure Second Magnet

    Next, peel the backing off your second magnet (make sure it's one without a monkey's face). Stick it to the surface that you want to be bonded with the surface you used the first magnet on. This could be the edge of a large door, the door of a cupboard, or the inside of a particular drawer that you've been having trouble keeping shut. Ensure that the second magnet is lined up parallel to the first magnet, or else the two magnets won't be able to bond properly.

  3. Close Door, Cabinet, Or Drawer

    Once you think your first and second magnets have been attached securely to your chosen surfaces, try closing the door, cabinet, or drawer you've attached them to. If it closes securely and doesn't fly open again, you've been successful. Otherwise, you may have to move one or both of the magnets slightly up, down, or to either side.

  4. Add Screws (optional)

    If you think you won't want to move a set of magnets you've hung in a particular place, you'll have the option of using screws, instead of just adhesive, to keep them in place. Each magnet has a small hole for a screw on each end, so you'll have to select screws of an appropriate size, drill small holes, and twist the screws into the holes.


  • For Use On Various Surfaces

    While magnets themselves will often only attach to metal surfaces, the adhesive backing found on these magnets will allow you to hang them up almost anywhere. Their ability to stick to drywall and wood surfaces should come in handy since many surfaces in and around homes are made of these materials. Plus, if you ever find that a certain set of magnets occasionally falls down, you can take advantage of the option of screwing them permanently into certain surfaces.

  • Stainless Steel Construction

    All Monkey Magnets are made from stainless steel, which means that they're durable, along with being resistant to corrosion and bad weather conditions. That means you'll be able to use them outdoors, even if you live in a snowy, rainy climate, without worrying about them incurring permanent damage to their appearance or functionality. Using them to help close outdoor cupboards that often flap open and shut in the wind could be helpful if you need to protect the objects inside from snow, hail, rain, and other disruptive elements.

  • Slim And Lightweight

    At about the size of a house key or an eraser for schoolchildren, these magnets are small to start with. They're also very slim—not much thicker than a credit card—which makes them lightweight. Consequently, none of these magnets will take up a great deal of space in a cupboard, drawer, or doorframe like a bulkier decorative magnet would, so using them won't mean losing any valuable space.

  • Variety Of Package Sizes

    If you decide to obtain some of these magnets, the smallest package contains eight sets of two magnets, while the largest one offers 96 sets of two magnets. There are two package sizes in between, which contain either 24 or 48 sets of two Monkey Magnets. It's specified that the average home will require about 48 sets to help close all of its cabinets, drawers, and doors, but if you've got an extra-large house, you may want to get 96 sets. On the other hand, people who live in small homes or apartments may be better off with eight sets.

Positive Points

  • Tolerates 15 Pounds

    One magnet from a Monkey Magnet set can withstand up to 15 pounds of weight. Therefore, if you use one of them to help you close a fairly heavy door, it's unlikely that its weight will be too much for the magnet to take without slipping. The same goes for a heavy cupboard door or a bulky drawer that's made out of metal or wood.

  • Helps Protect Objects

    Keeping cabinets, doors, and drawers closed by installing Monkey Magnets will protect the objects that are in the cabinets and drawers or behind the doors. This is especially beneficial when it comes to food. If you've got a fridge or freezer door or drawer that jiggles open easily, you can add a set of these magnets to it to keep it closed and preserve the food inside. You can also stop valuables from flying out of storage areas, both inside and outside, by securing their small doors or drawers with a couple of these magnets.

  • Promote Privacy

    If you're tired of your bedroom door randomly opening up and showing your family members or roommates your solo activities, you can gain more privacy by adding Monkey Magnets to your door. Similarly, you can stop your neighbors from glimpsing the interior of your house by adding these magnets to exterior doors that tend to slide open, such as patio doors. Similarly, you may even want to protect your garden shed from nosy people who might peek inside at your tools and appliances by adding a set of these magnets to your shed's door.

Save Time

People who are having difficulty keeping drawers and doors shut might decide to add compact metal latches to them in hopes that those will keep them securely closed. However, with most metal latches, you'll have to use tools and hardware such as your drill, your screwdriver, and some screws to install them. As for Monkey Magnets, you can use them to accomplish the same thing as metal latches do, and unless you decide to screw them permanently to a surface, you'll need no tools for installation. Instead, you'll be able to secure them to various surfaces with their adhesive.
