Thanks Bill. I was thinking about magnets, but I didn't know if I could get one strong enough. The ones you linked to look pretty damn strong. I think I'll try it out. I also found that when closing the easel there is a small metal flap that falls on the paper before the frame hits the paper. This metal flap is spring loaded and looks to be pushing the frame off the paper a bit. I took this spring out and it seemed to help a bit. Now I think those magnets might be in order. Thanks again for the replies!
