Tips on handling and storing magnets
Always take special care in handling magnets! Magnets can snap together and injure personnel or damage themselves.
Keep magnets away from magnetic media such as floppy disks, credit cards, and computer monitors.
Store magnets in closed containers so they don't attract metal debris.
If several magnets are being stored, they should be stored in attracting positions.
Because they can easily become demagnetized, alnico magnets should be stored with "keepers", iron or magnetic steel plates that connect the poles of the magnet.
