Tips on handling and storing magnets

Always take care! Magnets can snap together and injure personnel or damage themselves.
Keep magnets away from magnetic media – such as floppy discs magnet and credit cards – and computer monitors.
Store magnets in closed containers, so that they do attract metal debris.
If several magnets are being stored, they should be stored in attracting positions.
Alnico magnets should be stored with “keepers” (iron or magnetic steel plates that connect the poles of the magnet) since they can easily become demagnetized.
Magnets should be kept away from pacemakers!
