Expectation Warning! :
These Tiny Hook Neodymium Magnets – 12mm Diameter are really tiny! it is smaller than a fingertip.
Hence, expecting these little critters to do heavy duty magnetic lifting are just out of the question. But in a game of stealth, they are the crafty winner.
FAQs of 12mm diameter tiny neodymium hook magnets:
Q: How heavy can they hold?
Attached upside down to a fairly thick metal surface, it can hold appx 1kg max. of stable weight. (Scroll down for photo proof)
Yes, we were rather surprised for the tiny diameter of 12mm footprint, as our initial “expert” guesstimate was a max of 500g before it drop, but it held steady a 1kg pack of rock sugar. Sweet!
Sideways as attached to a metal wall was disappointing, at just 150 grams before it start slipping down, this is due to the base vs overall height of the hook magnet which is more than 1:2 ratio (Height bearing load has more than 2x leverage against the magnetic base).
Q: What are the advantages of being small?
Tiny hook magnets present really stealthy solution if you are hanging plenty of lightweight decorations or thin fishing lines, wires for display.
They are also most cost effective when you need to have many temporary points for hanging as removing and reusing it in other areas for different occasions is really fast and convenient.
Q: What are these tiny hook magnets for anyway?
There are situation where you’ve got just that tiny surface exposure of metal eg, the tip of a bolt head or screw that is just barely 10mm area.
A stronger but bigger dia. 42mm hook magnet even if it is possible to attach magnetically, would not fully utilise it’s full holding strength, but this dia. 12mm hook magnet would be optimal.
Tips: Unscrew the hook to get a even smaller, shorter profile with an improved sideway load.
For mounting flat panel object to metal wall, you can unscrew the hook and replace it with similar size screw or bolt to the 4 corners of a flat panel object (eg, aluminum sign plate, LED light panels etc). Removing the hook lowers the height profile which can improve the side way holding strength of the magnet.
