Eyelet magnets are identical to hook magnets with the difference that an eyelet is closed and a hook is open. A eyelet can be an advantage if you want to ensure that a cord, rope og string does not fall off the eyelet/hook.
Eyelet magnets have a very strong magnetic pull force due to their steel pot/cap. But be aware that the strength is calculated for a direct pull. If the eyelet magnet is placed on a vertical surface (e.g. a whiteboard), the eyelet magnet will hold 10-15% of the stated strength before it slides down or tips off. Therefore, you should check whether the eyelet magnet needs to hold something vertically or horizontally and choose the magnetic strength accordingly. To prevent the eyelet magnet from sliding down, you can increase the friction by using a rubber cap or silicone washer. You will find a link to them below.
