    Default Best way to make stand doors removable?

    I have yet to put doors on my stand. I've got some free time with the holidays so I'm planning on getting that done. One thing I want is for my doors to be removable. Like the title says what's the best way of going about this?

    really depends on how your stand is set up. it is wood? metal?

    easiest is most likely magnets, but that has it's own challenges if your stand isn't metal.

    it also matters if the doors are flush with the stand skin, or will go "over" the skin.

    a pic would help.

    That probably sounded a lot smarter in your head, before you committed it to the forum for all to laugh at.

    I've seen magnets and Velcro used but I'm looking to see what other options there are. I believe there are hardware options but don't know what they're called so I can't look it up lol

    I believe there called pocket hinges. The sitbin a recess in the door and clip to a tab on the stand. Just push on a clip and off they go.

    Similar to this...

    You just need to find the clip on ones
