Spot-On!â¿¢ Magnetic Hook
makes holes in dish towels
While I appreciate the magnet's strength in that it stays put on my fridge, I do not like that the tips of the hooks are so thin. When I go to grab a dish towel that is hanging on the hook, the tip of the hook goes right through the towel. My dishtowels are now full of small holes. The tips are very thin. I can't see someone hanging a heavy coat on it and not having some sort of damage done over time.
Hard objects like brooms and such would be fine, but I bought them to hang my dish towels up so they'd be within easy reach. But the hooks have caused too much damage to my towels. I'd not recommend them if you are buying them for towels or clothes.

We use them to hold up our keys and they work great. My keys are really heavy and I was skeptical it would support them; but once I stuck the magnetic hooks on the strip they didn't budge not even with my giant key ring weighing it down. They come 4 in a pack which is nice; but the price is a little high since they cost more than the magnetic strip.

Great for quilting rulers
I bought 10 of these magnetic hooks to use with The Container Store's 2-1/2 x 28 inch magnetic strips in my sewing room as a way to organize my expanding collection of quilting rulers. The magnets hold 5 pounds so more than one ruler can hang on each hook if you need to save space. The hooks are small enough to be easily bent a little bit to accommodate rulers so they hang down straight. The holes on several of my rulers needed to be expanded slightly so they'd hang down straight but my husband easily took care of this with his drill. The system works great and I can easily see all my rulers.
The magnetic strips come with small, very strong magnets so you can hang notes to them also.

If you are looking for a very strong quality magnetic hook, these are the best!!! I use them on the side of my fridge as I have a very small kitchen and it takes my keys, my Ipod and change purses off of the counter. Believe it or not, they are a great space saver. I highly recommend them!!!!
