Please read the following before handling magnets:

Magnets are more powerful than most people imagine and need to be handled with care. Before handling magnets, particularly Neodymium Magnets, please follow these safety instructions:

gloves Always wear proper safety equipment (protective gloves and eyewear) when handling larger magnets. Large Neodymium Magnets can be attracted to other magnets or metal objects which may cause serious injuries. Be careful to avoid getting your fingers caught!

credit cardMagnets with a strong magnetic field may cause permanent damage to credit cards, computer hard drives, watches, TVs, data storage media and other electronic devices.

snappingAvoid snapping or smashing magnets together with other magnets or with metal as they may break or chip.

temperature Temperatures over 176 deg. Fahrenheit (80 deg. Celsius) can demagnetize Neodymium (Rare Earth) Magnets.

magnet Be careful when using and storing different types of magnetic material, e.g. Neodymium and Ceramic, as demagnetization can occur.

pacemaker People with pacemakers must avoid handling magnets.

children Keep out of reach of children. Small magnets are a choking and swallowing hazard.
