1. Keep Cords and Cables Contained

At school or in the office, hook magnets are an easy way to hang items such as clipboards and desk organizers to make them easily accessible.

By simply placing a hook magnet on a metal surface near you, such as a tool chest, you’ve created a hanging solution that lasts for as long—or as short—as you need it to. Hook magnets aren’t just for work tools, either—they’re also great way to keep your grilling utensils close at hand when you’re flipping burgers on the weekend. Simply place a hook magnet on the side of your grill, hang your spatula off the side of it, then remove it when you’re finished cooking.

Hook magnets completely eliminate the fuss associated with adhesive hanging strips, and you never have to worry about them wearing out and falling down. Adhesive hanging strips aren’t guaranteed to stick to every surface, but long as there is a metal stud beneath your wall’s surface, your hook magnet will stay in place. Best of all, hook magnets are 100% reusable. This is an excellent way to quickly hang up small items without the frustration associated with adhesive hanging strips.
