This new magnet is made with a foldable handle so that it can be slid in your pocket, and, should it get dropped on the ground and accidentally run over by a car, the handle will not break off. It also easily attaches to your torch tank for easy carrying. MagGripz have the same rubber buffer as the MagStrapz and MagBandz to keep your surface safe. It was designed to still have the ability to reposition your vinyl without having to lift it off. The strong 2˝ magnet has 29 lbs of holding power to keep that vinyl in place to get the job done.
