The other day, I mounted a plaster ceiling for a friend. You work mostly with your arms above your head, so it's really annoying, when you constantly have to dig out new screws. Sure, you can put them in a bin and hang it on the ladder. But it's still not that easy to reach into it all the time.
The trick is to put a super magnet in the breast pocket. The screws stick to the outside of my shirt and are easy to grab.
There, I had only four Q-10-05-02-G on me. That worked great. But if I have a choice, I would just take 1 or 2 D S-20-05-N!
If you have a breast pocket on your work clothes, you can put a magnet in it, and the screws are glued to it on the outside. Without a breast pocket, you just use two magnets. You put them on both sides of the fabric and place the screws on the outside magnet.
If you need screws in various formats, you can attach them in different places.
Note from the supermagnete team:
  • If you use a heart pacemaker, do not put magnets in your breast pocket!
  • We also carry ready-to-use magnetic helpers in our group workshop, which are for the wrist though. Some of them are linked below.
