A hook magnet is your "mobile hook", and can be used on all magnetic surfaces such as fridges, radiators, whiteboards and more. A few use cases for hook magnets are:
- Hang pots, saucepans and other kitchen utensils on cupboards and walls
- Organizing tools on a tool wall
- Hanging a tea towel
- Hanging ceiling panels for e.g. art exhibitions
Hook 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 hook magnet is placed on a vertical surface (e.g. a whiteboard), the hook magnet will hold 10-15% of the stated strength before it slides down or tips off. Therefore, you should check whether the hook magnet needs to hold something vertically or horizontally and choose the magnetic strength accordingly. To prevent the hook 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.
