The MGC utilizes the strongest Soft (rubber) Magnet
that can be manufactured at these dimensions. It's 1/4" thick with dual poles in both
directions. Which means it's going to hold strongto the
metal surface, will resist sliding, and will not corrode.
A balance was required between the holding
strength needed to safely secure the gun/magnet to the metal surface, but not too strong
that it would cause scratching of a painted metal surface. That, and other issues, are
why neodymium or other magnets are not practical for this
The soft high-energy rubber magnet will not
scratch paint, and it will not corrode. To use, just wipe a small surface
area to rid it of dust or dirt and place the MGC),.
So, how strong is
Well it's not overly hard to pull off, but plenty
strong enough to secure your gun upright while the stock rests on the ground or
To give you some perspective, you could drive around
with the MGC on your vehicle all day at highway speeds - it'll stay on just
Also check out the video below - it's rough, but it
clearly shows the relative strength of the magnet and the holding power of the universal foam
Note: The gun utilized in the video is a 20 Gauge o/u double barrel
Note: This sporting goods version of The MAGnet Gun
Caddy is NOT intended to be used in a moving vehicle to hold a firearm. It was
specifically designed for stationary use (a temporary place to rest your gun) with the stock
resting on the ground or floor.
