Magnetic Panel from Atlas 46

303252358

The Atlas-46 AIMS 3″ Magnetic Pocket Clip is a belt-mountable (also looks to be MOLLE-compatible when adapters are used) magnetic tool “pouch” designed for ease of access and speed. As appropriately named, the panel is 3″ wide and complete with six magnets arrayed in three vertical rows of two magnets.

While designed for tools and working around the shop, I have a feeling this could be used in a similar vein as the recently reviewed NeoMag magnetic pocket clip. With is very open design, it could be more useful for competition shooters by allowing magazines to be oriented at various angles versus the required vertical orientation of the NeoMag.

Those looking to keep screws handy or test the competition applications of the AIMS 3″ can purchase it direct from Atlas-46 for $11.99. It is available in classic black as well as Coyote.

    I used those same tan deck screws the other day. Quality.

    This looks very useful.
    Some people are getting magnets embedded in their skin…

    Can the magnets be removed? The problem with magnetic tools arises when cutting ferrous metals (drill, saw, file, etc.). They can pick up the shavings. Cleaning up a mag driver shaft is one thing, but if the magnets aren’t removable here, you might never get the shavings out of the webbing.

  • no

    What are the chances this is gonna screw up your cell phone? I’ve always heard to keep magnets away from electronics.

      Your cell phone will be fine, the magnetic stripe on your credit cards will get messed up though if you have it in the same pocket these magnets are attached to.
      Oh, and don’t try putting a harddrive next to these magnets either (or a cassette or video tape should you still have any of those).

    Magazines ok, but not guns. If the firing pin gets magnetized, then it won’t work.
