To close the cabinet door, simply push the door closed. Your existing self-closing hinge will keep the door closed against the cabinet frame.

Furthermore, what is touch latch? Overview. This touch latch is invisible from the outside of the door. When you use a touch latch no other hardware (knob, pull, latch ) is needed on your door giving it a clean look. Available in either a regular duty or heavy duty model.

Likewise, how does push to open work?

The point of a handle is to be able to open and close a cupboard door, and push to open latches do just that, but better! This enables the user to simply push the door lightly and the door pops open, then push the door back into place and the magnetic push catch holds it closed.
