Magnet Safety Warnings

Do Not Allow Magnets to Touch Each Other

Never allow magnets to impact one another without a piece of cloth or clothing in between. Allowing magnets to impact one another may result in product damage or personal injury.

Keep out of reach of children

Although magnets can be wonderful tools and highly useful, these are not for small children. Small children should not be allowed to handle any of our magnets at all! Older children should handle them only after receiving adult training.

Pacemakers and Defibrillators

Pacemakers and defibrillators can be sensitive to strong magnetic fields. If you or someone in your household has a pacemaker or defibrillator, or has health issues that require that you wear electronics of any sort, avoid magnets completely until you consult your doctor.

Pinch and Eye Hazard

Strong magnets can pose a serious pinch hazard due to their attractive force on each other and to any metal object containing iron. Usually surprise is an issue–they can jump out of your hands and snap together from a surprising distance before you realize what is happening. ALWAYS use a strong grip and concentration when handling magnets.

Damage to Magnetic Storage

Media Magnetic fields can cause damage to magnetic storage media. These include: thumb drives, credit cards, video tapes, and computers. Keep all magnets at least 12 inches away from all types of magnetic media.

Damage to Electronics

Certain electronic devices are sensitive to magnetic fields and may be damaged permanently or temporarily disabled if exposed to a magnetic field that is too strong. Any video screen or television will become distorted and/or discolored if exposed to a strong magnetic field. While damaged screens can usually be demagnetized, it’s often tricky and may require qualified service technicians to do so. Other electronic devices like cell phones and pagers can also be damaged. Store your magnets in a safe place away from electronics of any kind.

Washing and Drying Machines

Never allow your to go through a washing or drying machine while attached to any article of clothing as this may create unwanted wear on your garments.

Pregnant Women

Although there are no known health risks involving the handling of permanent magnets of the sizes we sell, just to be on the safe side we would advise pregnant women to avoid any exposure to strong magnetic fields.

Airports

When going through airport security please remove since the magnet would affect the sensor.
