Say goodbye to nails and sticky adhesives that leave marks on your walls and say hello to hook magnets and countersunk magnets! Not only will these strong magnets stay put on the wall, but they’re also easily adjustable and removable if you move or change your mind. 

Both countersunk and hook magnets are great choices as they have strong pull force capabilities. Remember, the size of the magnet isn’t the only thing to look for — even tiny magnets can hold a lot! Instead, look at the size and pull strength of the magnet to make sure it’ll hold your object. If you need help finding the right size, give us a call

Hook Magnets

Thanks to their tremendous holding power, with a range of sizes capable of holding 12 lbs up to 200 lbs, our hook magnets have a variety of uses including: 

Organizing Your Home or Office

Magnetic hooks are a great alternative to shelves and nails when hanging up decorative hanging plants, lights, shovels, and tools in your garage… the options are limitless! Just use magnetic paint or some sheet metal on the wall where you'd want to organize things and attach some hook magnets to the wall. Depending on the weight of your object, you might need to use strong magnets like our 25 or 50 lb hook magnets

If you don’t have the wall space, hang your pots, pans, or other tools in your cabinets! For this, we suggest laying a small sheet of metal flat inside one or more of your cabinets on the bottom of the shelf. Then, attach a few hook magnets to the sheet facing downwards. Your pots and pans will now be easily reachable — and if your cabinets are tall, you might have enough space for cups and bowls on the same shelves!

Upgrade Your Grill or Bar

If you own a stainless steel grill, depending on its iron or ferrous material content, there are a few magnetic DIYs and hacks you can try. Just find an accessible portion of the grill (like the prepping table), as you’ll want to add your hooks on parts of the grill that do not get heated. This is because the magnet could lose its magnetization if it reaches certain temperatures. Now you can hang BBQ utensils to add space and convenience. To save on table or lawn space, try hanging an ice or drink bucket up with a few strong hook magnets to the side of your garage or along a steel beam/pole on the deck. This handy hack will be much appreciated by guests that now won’t have to bend down to get a beverage.


These strong magnets are a great option if you’re wanting to limit your screw and nail usage as the magnet will add to the holding power. This can come in handy in many different ways including:
