and, keep them away from credit cards and other things that can be affected by magnets.

Of course, if you have them mounted to the bottom of the bike and run over someone you might make their pace maker stop working or not be able to get your ransom money out of an ATM...LOL

Comments contained in my posts are not intended to cause physical or psychological stress and are mearly my two cents worth, and in this economy, that's cheap!

I've had quite a few of these things for one odd project or another, and I'll second the "don't let kids play with them" caution. Well, specifically, don't let kids play with two of them.

Firstly, the suckers are unbelievably strong, and it is entirely possible the kids can get a painful pinch when two of the magnets come together. Less likely, but still possible, is eye injury. The magnets are strong but brittle, and small pieces will chip off if they're allowed to slam together.

Cautions aside, though, they're very cool to play with.

[Idly wonders...] maybe if those magnetic drain plugs were made more powerful they would also trigger the traffic signals?
