How do I store all of my strong magnets?

If you frequently use different magnets, you get to the point where storage becomes an issue.
First option: Leave all magnets in the packaging that they were delivered in. That seems like a safe bet, but you don't really see the magnets when you need one and you're still determining which one would be most suitable. Also, it's almost a shame to keep magnets under wraps like that. They are beautiful after all :-)
Second option: Put all magnets on a table or shelf. But everyone who owns strong magnets knows that this is not a good idea.
Third (my) option: Make a special board to safely store your magnets!
- Steel plate 600 x 300 mm, 2 mm thick
- Felt 600 x 300 mm, 5 mm thick
- 2 countersunk screws
Here are the magnets shown in the photo:
- Memo holder 'Piggy' magnetic
- Hippo (sold out)
The memo holders need to be stabilised on blocks, so they won't fall off.
Note from the supermagnete team: Of course, you can also put your magnets directly on a steel plate (without felt), but then they are less protected and harder to remove.
In our online shop, you can also find colourful magnetic boards which are great surfaces for you to attach your magnets.
