Safety & Handling
single fixed magnet used in the handytab assembly is small but
the general guidance below should be read carefully as even
small Neodymium magnets must be handled with care.
Neodymium magnets are extremely
powerful, and must be handled with care to avoid personal injury
or damage to the magnets. Fingers and other body parts can get
pinched between two attracting magnets. Neodymium magnets are
brittle, and can peel, crack or shatter if a number of magnets
are allowed to slam together.
The strong magnetic fields
of neodymium magnets can also damage magnetic media such as floppy
disks, credit cards, magnetic I.D. cards, cassette tapes, video
tapes or other such devices. They can also damage televisions,
VCRs, computer monitors and other CRT displays. Never place neodymium
magnets near electronic appliances.
Children should not be allowed
to play with neodymium magnets as they can be dangerous. Small magnets
pose a choking hazard and should never be swallowed or inserted
into any part of the body.
Never allow neodymium magnets
near a person with a pacemaker or similar medical
aid. The strong magnetic fields of the magnet can affect the operation
of such devices.
Neodymium magnets are brittle
and prone to chipping and cracking. They should not be machined
in any way.
Neodymium magnets should
never be burned, as burning them will create toxic fumes.
Neodymium magnets can be
fun and useful, but must always be treated with care.
We take no responsibility
for any loss or injury caused by the magnet supplied with the HandyTab.
The magnet and flexible metal
'gooseneck' is Nickel Plated.
