Mobile Solutions Introduces Magnet Fitment System

Innovative Kit for Neodymium Magnet Panel Attachments

TEMPE, Ariz., February 1, 2021 -- Mobile Solutions announces its latest product release: the Magnet Fitment System. It’s a complete, solution-driven kit that aids fabricators in the use and installation of round neodymium magnets in place of traditional door or trim panel clips. “It’s the only kit of its kind” says company founder and president, Bryan Schmitt. He says that using this kit virtually eliminates difficulties commonly experienced when implementing these small, powerful magnets into custom interior and audio system builds.

“The problem when using neodymium magnets for panel attachments is common size drill bits are not precision-sized for a secure press fit and leave an angled bottom of the drilled hole,” Schmitt said. This means the mounting hole (also called the “pocket hole”) ends up larger than round magnet’s outer diameter and without a flat countersink at the bottom of the hole. “A precision, tight fit is critical because of the force of attraction between these magnets.”

In addition, because magnets require a specific polarity orientation to attract to one another (rather than oppose), positioning the magnets with a backward polarity orientation is a common mistake. The Mobile Solutions Magnet Fitment System solves all these problems with a solution-driven approach.

Custom CNC-machined Magnet Match™ countersink bits that are precision-sized for a secure press fit of MS neodymium magnets. This means precision mechanical fitment for most materials with a flat bottom surface. Smart Mag Alignment Plates™ assist with the magnet installation process. These are machined out of 1/2” acrylic with corresponding flush-mounted magnets to ensure North and South polarity orientations are always correct.

Using the Magnet Fitment System is very easy. “It’s as simple as drilling a pilot hole through both surfaces (fixed surface and removable panel), countersinking the magnet pocket hole, embedding the magnet with correct polarity orientation and you’re done,” Schmitt said.

Features:

  • Precision CNC-Machined Magnet Match™ Countersink Bits to match magnet tolerances
  • Countersink Diameter NOMINAL Sizes: 1/4”, 3/8”, 1/2" & 3/4" all with a 3/8” Shank
  • Flat bottom design on Countersink Bits for maximum glue adhesion (if using glue)
  • Smart Mag Alignment Plates™ with embedded magnets for accurate placement
  • Markings on Smart Mag Alignment Plates™ indicate polarity orientation (North/South)
  • Sturdy 1/2” Acrylic on Smart Mag Alignment Plates™ allows long-term use with rubber mallet
  • Smart Magnet System is designed for multiple types of plastic and wood substrates, as well as aluminum
  • Signature Mobile Solutions tray provides easy organization and features a QR code that links to the “How To” learning video

Uses:

  • Door and trim panel inserts that can be removed to expose threaded fasteners
  • Subwoofer enclosure grilles that can be removed to service the subwoofer
  • Amplifier rack covers that can be removed for servicing the electronics/fuses
  • Console sides that can be removed for access to wiring, mechanical linkages, etc.
  • Creating hidden storage compartments for safety items like jumper cables or first aid kits
  • Much, much more – only limited by the fabricator’s imagination

Benefits:

  • Save precious fabrication and install time
  • More predictable outcomes on custom projects
  • Invisible fasteners – no screw caps or hard-to-reach mounting hardware
  • Expands creativity of mounting options and aesthetic designs
  • Enhances serviceability of equipment and parts behind panels

What’s Included in the Kit (13 pieces total):

  • Custom Organizer Tray

List price for the Magnet Fitment System is $299.99. For a short time the introductory pricing is just $249.99.
