Yup, 3 of them.

Both Moss & TRF have the magnet set listed (866-220 & 513205 respectively),
but refrigerator magnets (I assume Tom meant the magnet that goes inside the
seal to hold the door closed) would be cheaper.

Just for clarity, I believe the factory didn't add the magnets until when
the screen changed from being held with a bolt and spacer to being held by
the drain plug.  The Moss catalog seems to imply that didn't happen until
the TR4A IRS version, but the TR4 I bought for its OD had the magnets (and
later screen, etc.) and did not have the IRS version of the OD.

I added the magnets to TS39781LO (before its original OD got replaced by the
TR4 one), but as I recall there was not enough room for all 3 of them.  I
don't recall now if I used two or only one.
