    First off.. I can not draw a stick figure so sewing is out of question for me.

    Is there any tape or something I could use to attach a mini magnet to my gate wood cape.  I want to roll the doors up and The loop attachment they provide standard is great.. However, I would have loved it if they had another one near the upper top part, on both sides.  Wish I could sew one on myself.. But not happening, so I was wondering if I could somehow use a mini magnet or if someone has a better idea.. Do tell. Thanks..

    Is this the loose area you are referring to?

    Placing magnet(s) in a circular silnylon patch by Gear Aid would work flawlessly.

    Or you could just get some magnets with holes in the middle and tie two together with a length of cordage that would work for your purposes. When you want to use them, just place one magnet on the inside of your door, wrap the other magnet around to the outside and connect them together. The cordage would hold the door in place. I suspect you could accomplish something similar with a couple regular magnets and a length of tape stuck to itself instead of the the cordage.

    I would look into neodymium magnets. Crazy strong. I have two taped to my pack shoulder strap that hold my knife, or .32 acp (depending on where I am)

    I do have the very tiny mini round neodymium  magnets. Actually just ordered the clear silnylon patches from gear aid. Looking on amazon.. i also found the mini magnets with holes in them. Good idea @ Michael B!!!
