Vanishing Cabinets are enchanted to allow passage of both items and people between Cabinets. They were popular during the First Wizarding War as a means of escaping Death Eaters. Draco Malfoy, however, used it for the opposite effect during his sixth year at Hogwarts. In an attempt to assassinate Albus Dumbledore, Draco repaired Hogwarts' broken cabinet. This allowed Death Eaters to use its sister Cabinet in Borgin and Burkes to infiltrate the school.
