A new way of presenting your impressive CD collection

DIY CD wallI found a way to arrange my CDs in a unique and neat style: on my CD wall! The available wall space measured 2 m in width and 2,4 m in height. I screwed two 1000 x 2000 x 0,6 mm galvanised iron sheets on the wall.
I prepared the CDs as follows: I opened them, removed the black cover and placed a S-10-04-N disc magnet in the indentation. Then I replaced the cover again so that the magnet was located under the indentation. It is important that the poles face in the right direction: I always had to check if the disc magnet was attracted to the large boss magnet.
As soon as I fitted all the CDs with the correctly aligned magnets, I could arrange them on the iron sheets to my liking and create a very unique wall decoration.
But how do I get the CDs off the wall again? Since the CDs are arranged flush next to each other, you don't have room to grasp them with your fingers. The elegant solution: I bring the boss magnet towards the center of the CD and pull it towards me.
This way I can effortlessly "pick" a CD from the wall.
Despite the strong attractive force of the magnets no CD cover broke yet!
Note from the supermagnete team:
If you worry about your CDs: CDs are burnt with a laser and are not influenced by (electro)magnetic fields. To protect your CD covers, however, we recommend using the "Magnetic pins 'The Boss'" with 7 kg adhesive force.
