Magnetic solution

magnet with strike plate to keep door closed

We had to decrease the spring closing tension on our back door which created the problem of it blowing open a smidgen when the wind blew really hard during the day when we have it unlocked.

The solution was this magnet with the easy 1/4 inch mounting holes.

A small Stanley mending plate made a nice strike plate once I got it lined up exactly where it needed to be.
