Now you can also benefit from the maximum door width of your sliding doors when using this genius little device. The sliding door can fully slide into the wall (pocket-wall) and is than secured on the little magnet of the release buffer. Door handles etc. are no longer necessary.

Just a little push against the door is sufficient to let the door 'jump' out of the wall again.
