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.
