When I recently had to install a set of magnetic latches, I came up with this simple method of marking doors for the strike plate. It requires no measurements and the results are accurate and clean.
Just insert the mounting screw into the plate and attach it to the magnet. Then press the door firmly against the screw so that the tip leaves a mark. Drill a hole centered on this mark and then attach the plate.—Tim Howell
