Removable Back Panel for Bartop
« on: September 06, 2018, 12:11:27 pm »
I've been lurking on the forums, and this is my first post. I purchased a bartop Haruman (Ultimate Widescreen) and built it without a problem. Everything fits perfectly. Now I'm trying to figure out a way to attach the back panel in an elegant way that's not visible. It should be removable, and I prefer not to have any hinges showing on the outside. Also, the back panel is a bit heavy and sits at an angle, so the attachment has to be strong enough to support it. Is there a way to "clip" it into the two batons that are glued on the inside, so I can just slide the back panel down into place?

Thanks in advance!

rare earth magnets will be the solution to your problem.  One in each corner. completely invisible from the outside.  Just need a hole large enough to put your finger in to pull the door back off again.
