Rare Earth Threaded Hook Holding Magnets
AMF has various Neodymium Holding (aka Pot) magnets that can be fitted with removable hooks or also eyelets if preferred. All our Female Pot magnets can convert to convenient hanging devices with the addition of the correct size threaded hook and are available in a range of sizes and strengths. In situations where painted metal surfaces are present, such as around vehicles or machinery, a piece of rubber or cloth can be inserted underneath the magnet to prevent scratching or damage to the paint during attachment and removal of the magnet. The air gap between the surfaces this creates will, however, weaken the magnetic hold and reduce the amount of force required to remove or relocate the magnet. In certain applications, this ability to easily relocate the magnetic is considered an advantage. The hook may also act as a leverage point that can be used to remove and relocate larger sized magnets more easily. Hook type holding magnets are generally used on vertical surfaces to store equipment, display products or suspend items that may be regarded as trip hazards, which importantly helps to improve safety levels in the workplace. Hook magnets provide convenient, relocatable hanging points around shipping containers and demountable buildings and also offer storage options for organising tools and equipment for those who perform on-site services or for maintenance workers in isolated or remote locations, where mains electric power is often unavailable. This can include mine sites, farming plots, exhibition halls, campsites, festivals, outdoor markets, food trucks, caravans, sports fields and recreation areas.
