Pull-push mechanism, magnetic action

By closing the door a cylindrical magnet will get in contact with a metal plate fixed to the door, a smooth closing will be ensured.
By opening the door a plastic pin, coaxial to the magnet, takes the plastic plate away from 6 mm, releasing the door.
Having an axial symmetry and reduced dimensions, the product can be inserted into a 10 mm dia. hole machined in the side panel, being actually invisible.
The metal plate can be fixed by bi-adhesive tape. Further operations on the door are not required.
Patent Pending in Europe, USA, China and Japan.
