Magnet Safety Disclosures

Never allow magnets to impact one another without a piece of clothing in between. Allowing magnets to impact one another may result in product damage or personal injury.

Keep out of reach of children Although magnets can be wonderful tools and highly useful, these are  not for small children. Small children should not be allowed to handle  any of our magnets at all! Older children should handle them only after  receiving adult training.

Pacemakers and Defibrillators Pacemakers and defibrillators can be sensitive to strong magnetic  fields. If you or someone in your household has a pacemaker or  defibrillator, or has health issues that require that you wear  electronics of any sort, avoid magnets completely until you consult your  doctor.

Pinch and Eye Hazard   Strong magnets can pose a serious pinch hazard due to their attractive  force on each other and to any metal object containing iron. Usually  surprise is an issue–they can jump out of your hands and snap together  from a surprising distance before you realize what is happening. ALWAYS use a strong grip and concentration when handling magnets.

Damage to Magnetic Storage Media   Magnetic fields can cause damage to magnetic storage media. These include: thumb drives, credit cards, video tapes, and  computers.  Keep all magnets at least 12 inches away from all  types of magnetic media.

Damage to Electronics Certain electronic devices are sensitive to magnetic fields and may be  damaged permanently or temporarily disabled if exposed to a magnetic  field that is too strong. Any video screen or television will become  distorted and/or discolored if exposed to a strong magnetic field. While  damaged screens can usually be demagnetized, it’s often tricky and may  require qualified service technicians to do so. Other electronic devices  like cell phones and pagers can also be damaged. Store your magnets in a  safe place away from electronics of any kind.

Washing and Drying Machines Never allow Towel Tech to go through a washing or drying machine while attached to any article of clothing as this may create unwanted wear on your garmets.

Pregnant Women Although there are no known health risks involving the handling of  permanent magnets of the sizes we sell, just to be on the safe side we  would advise pregnant women to avoid any exposure to strong magnetic  fields.
