A trick I learned on RCG is to use one magnet on the hatch and a flat (ish) head screw wound into a small balsa block in line with the magnet. This allows sufficient strength to 'click' and hold the hatch secure, without pulling the structure apart when opening and closing. Better still it can be adjusted to get the hatch flush at the correct magnet tension.

Good luck with the varnish.
