Magnetic Catches / Rigging
« on: October 23, 2010, 02:15:59 PM »

Hi,

Seen posted here a couple of times reference to small magnetic catches for fastening up rigging so it is easily removable and a supplier.

Have tried searching but can't find anything.

Can anyone advise a supplier please?

I have used neodym magnets to hold a deck in place with success - see:

Thanks all, the MMB ones were what I'd seen, but the eBay ones are a great price.... I particularly liked these, even looked like aerial insulators, though maybe a little big....
