Mounting Magnets Introduction

A mounting magnet is a permanent magnet encased in a steel shell, which is sometimes called a pot, hence it also has the name “pot magnet” and “cup magnet”. A permanent magnet emits a magnetic field without the need for any electricity. Mounting magnets are often used as magnetic bases and magnetic holders for large supermarket ceiling signs.Pot Magnets

Strong, compact, and flexible. Those are the quality features of our neodymium mounting magnets. They are suitable as neodymium cup magnets, magnet bases, magnet pulls, outdoor attachments, and many other applications. We offer different types – from countersunk pot magnets over magnet bases with thread to magnet systems with rubber coating and hard ferrite cup magnets. In addition, you can order magnetic flat rods made of neodymium or ferrite in different models. This allows you to select the products that best fit your needs.

* A large and versatile assortment of neodymium pot magnets

* An additional attractive selection of inexpensive and rust-proof ferrite pot magnets

* Increased adhesive force through embedding in a steel pot

* Versatile and practical use due to flat design


A pot magnet is embedded in a steel pot. The steel pot increases the adhesive force of the magnet on direct contact with a thick iron surface. If there is no direct contact with the counterpart, or if the steel plate is thin, painted, or rough, you can strain it much less.

Shear force:

The indicated adhesive force was measured perpendicular to the surface to which the cup magnet should stick. It takes a lot less strength to move the magnet sideways. Therefore, you can strain a pot magnet much less if you use it on a wall as opposed to using it on the ceiling.


Neodymium cup magnets are not rust-proof and therefore intended for dry indoor use.

Maximum working temperature:

Most mounting magnets can be heated to a temperature of up to 80°C without losing their magnetization (ferrite magnets and certain CSN-types even higher). The adhesive that connects the magnet and the steel pot may become brittle at continuous heating to this temperature. Hence, it is recommended to use pot magnets only at room temperature.

Mounting Magnets features

Powerful Rare earth magnets: Made of strong rare earth Neodymium Magnet, uniquely designed to have magnet sit inside a hard steel cup to provide excellent mechanical properties and durability. This neodymium magnet can securely hold up to 80 lbs, with 50% less pull force if used on the underside surface.

Unlimited Applications: Perfect for quickly organizing your indoor and outdoor projects. These super magnets could be used for assembly at Home, Business, and Schools, Science Projects, Hobbies, Garages, workshops, Offices for art projects, crafts, Prototypes, and Much More…

Easy to Install: The screw can be easily screwed into the wooden surface with a screw head sitting flush with the surface of the magnet. The countersunk hole on the magnet works well with the flat head screw to affix onto any surface.

High Quality: Nickel-Copper-Nickel ( NI+CU+NI ) triple layer coating, BEST coating available in the market for superior durability to counter pure Neodymium oxidation properties.

What are mounting magnets?
Mounting magnets are strong magnets, often encased in materials such as steel, plastic, or rubber, which enhance their durability and usability. They come with various mounting features like hooks, threads, loops, or adhesive backs, making them easy to integrate into different setups.
How do mounting magnets work?
Mounting magnets use the magnetic force to adhere to ferromagnetic materials like iron, nickel, or cobalt. The casing or assembly around the magnet often serves to focus the magnetic field on one side, maximizing the holding force against the metal surface.
What are the benefits of using mounting magnets?
No Damage to Surfaces: They can be attached and removed without leaving marks or holes. High Holding Strength: Provides a strong hold in a compact form, ideal for hanging or securing objects. Versatility: Suitable for a wide range of applications, from industrial settings to home and office use. Reusable: Mounting magnets can be easily moved and reused as needed.
What types of mounting magnets are available?
Hook Magnets: Ideal for hanging lights, tools, or decor. Threaded Magnets: Feature a threaded stud or hole for attaching objects that require screwing. Pot Magnets: Encased in a metal 'pot' which focuses the magnetic force; often used in gripping and clamping systems. Magnetic Clips and Holders: For organizing cables, holding keys, or displaying information. Adhesive-Backed Magnets: Can be stuck to non-magnetic surfaces, providing a magnetic attachment point.
What are the common applications for mounting magnets?
Mounting magnets are used in various settings, including: Industrial: Holding workpieces for machining, temporary fixtures for welding, or mounting lighting in warehouses. Retail and Exhibition: Display setups, signage, and banner hanging. Home and Office: Organizing tools, kitchen utensils, keys, or decorative items; attaching smoke detectors or indoor lights. Automotive: Mounting auxiliary lights, attaching accessories to vehicles, or holding covers and tarps.
How do you choose the right mounting magnet?
Consider the following factors: Weight of the Object: Ensure the magnet’s holding force is adequate for the weight of the item to be mounted. Surface Material: The magnet should be used on a suitable ferromagnetic surface for optimal holding strength. Environment: If used outdoors or in harsh environments, choose a magnet with a protective coating against corrosion. Installation: Select a magnet with an appropriate mounting mechanism (e.g., hook, thread) for your application.
How do you maintain mounting magnets?
Cleaning: Keep the magnetic surface clean to maintain optimal holding force. Wipe with a damp cloth to remove dust and debris. Inspection: Regularly check for signs of wear or corrosion, especially if used in outdoor or industrial environments. Proper Use: Avoid dropping or knocking the magnets, as this can chip or damage the magnetic material, especially neodymium magnets.
