Is this revolutionary magnetic technology patented?

The heavily patented technology (over 100 patents) behind Gator Magnetics has been developed by our friends at Polymagnetics. Gator Magnetics has the exclusive rights to all B2C and B2B applications of the radical technologies they've developed.  Plus, the engineering and design behind the "Easy-Off" mechanism is patent pending.

Gator hooks are so powerful...will they damage the surface they attach to?

No. The rubber like material on the back of the hook serves two purposes; one is to add a buffer between the metallic magnet and the steel surface and the other is to increase the sheer strength of the hook by creating a small amount of friction or grip between the hook and the target surface.

How do I get the best performance out of my Gator Hook?

Keep your Gator Hooks clean! In some instances, dirt and debris can collect on the powerful Gator magnet on the back of your Gator Hook. Simply use a clean cloth and fast evaporating 90% Isopropyl Alcohol to wipe off the back of your hook and the surface you intend to attach it to.

Can I use Gator hooks on stainless steel?

Steel is a metal that magnets stick to because iron can be found inside of it. However, stainless steels comprise a large group of steel alloys that are made of different metal compositions. While some have more chromium, some might have more iron in them. That is why you will find that while some types of stainless steels are magnetic, other stainless steel types will not allow magnets to stick to them.

Other magnets make high capacity weight claims also...what's different about Gator?

The dirty little secret in the magnet biz is that many of these so-called high weight capacity magnets test their strength on thick solid iron surfaces like an I-beam which most people do not have in their house or garage. They also fool customers by testing PULL FORCE versus SHEAR FORCE. Pull force is the amount of strength needed to pull the hook directly off the wall. However, that is not how wall hooks work. Shear force is the amount of weight needed to push the hook down toward the floor. Gator Magnetics uses a proprietary near field magnetic technology that is designed to maximize sheer strength on thinner steel surfaces that are commonly found in your home on appliances, tool boxes, shelving, doors, etc.
