Neodymium Magnetic Hooks

This hook could hold several pairs of scissors without even trying very hard.

This hook could hold several pairs of scissors without even trying very hard.

I had never even heard of neodymium magnets until I went looking for some strong refrigerator-hook type magnets. I'm always wanting to hang things on the side of my refrigerator: potholders and mitts, a notepad for shopping lists, scissors, and the like. I needed some hooks on my refrigerator, and so I went shopping online for some string magnetic hooks. All the ones I found were "neodymium magnets."

It turns out that General Motors and a Japanese company discovered the compound in these magnetics in 1982. That explains why I don't remember magnets like this from my childhood. But apparently these magnets are super-ultra-strong in relation to their mass. A very small neodymium magnet has a surprising amount of strength, and a moderately large one can actually be dangerous. They actually come with warnings!

Anyway, I went to Amazon and bought a package of 5 Neodymium Hook Magnets rated to hold 12 pounds each. I passed on the ones rated for 25 pounds or 50 pounds each; after all, I only want to hang some potholders and scissors.

They're not very big; the base, which holds the magnet, is about the size of a nickel. Here's a picture of one with a quarter next to it, to give you an idea of the size:

The base is smaller than a quarter, really about the size of a nickel.

The magnets I remember from my childhood wouldn't have been very strong at that size. But these newfangled neodymium magnets are plenty strong.

I hang my kitchen scissors on one of these magnets on the refrigerator. The magnet doesn't even notice the scissors are there. I hang 2 pairs of oven mitts on another one. It doesn't notice them either. I hang a paper notepad on another one, and it doesn't notice the notepad. Any of them could hold significantly more than what I'm hanging on them.

They're not very expensive, only $15 for five of them. I'm probably going to order a couple more packs in different sizes, because they're just so handy to have around. You can get neodymium magnetic hooks from Amazon, and they're also readily available on eBay.
