The MegaMAG Socket Rack keeps sockets, bolts, and other ferrous items organized and within reach, even in inhospitable places such as under your vehicle.
The Socket Rack features five powerful Neodymium magnets and has a tenacious hold on ferrous objects.
The vinyl handle makes the Socket Rack easy to handle and comfortable to use.
But don't you already have an array of socket rails for your home box, such as these Ernst Manufacturing Socket Organizers? What makes the MegaMAG Socket Rack different?
The Ernst Manufacturing Socket Organizers are by far our favorite for shop and home tool boxes. There is nothing better. The Ernst Organizers are also eminently suitable for use on tool carts when the work being done is not adjacent to the tool boxes. For mounting the Ernst Organizers on our shop carts, we use the Ernst Manufacturing Cart Mount Socket System shown above. This lets us take the tools we will require to the work, away from our large and very immobile shop boxes.
The Cart Mount Socket System secures the Ernst Socket Organizers to the tool cart and leaves the cart's trays open for holding other items. Clutter is minimized and finding tools and parts is greatly enhanced. On the side of the cart is a magnetic parts tray for securing small parts that are removed from a job and preventing their accidental loss.
Not visible in the above photo is the MegaMAG Socket Rack stuck onto the side of the cart. The magnetic force on the back of the Socket Rack holds it loaded with sockets and parts to any flat metal surface, including our shop carts. We keep the Socket Rack handy in this fashion because we use it so frequently on jobs.
The underside of the Socket Rack is coated with black vinyl to prevent scratches to painted surfaces.
The Socket Rack comes into its own away from the shop boxes and the shop carts. The Socket Rack holds parts and tools required for particular jobs.
If you are working under the vehicle, simply snap the Socket Rack onto a ferrous surface like this ARB Winch Bar and keep everything you will require for the job handy. There is no need to get up and go to the tool cart get a particular part or tool. Everything is already within your reach. There is no need to get up and go to the tool cart to secure a small part or fastener against possible loss. Simply stick the small part or fastener onto the Socket Rack. It will stay in place. Don't leave these small parts on the floor. And don't leave your tools on the floor either. These practices are no-no's at home, but they are doubly bad in the field.
The vinyl-coated handle is thoughtfully bent to make attaching and removing the Socket Rack from ferrous surfaces easier.
When the Socket Rack is adhered to a flat surface, the handle sits proud and allows your fingers to grasp the handle and pull the Socket Rack away from the flat surface easily.
Make the MegaMAG Socket Rack a part of your home and field tool sets. You will not regret it.
The Ullman Devices Bit Holder is molded from a sturdy, unbreakable vinyl and holds up to 21, 1/4" hex bits. The Bit Holder keeps bits neat and organized.
The Bit Holder is only 3.5" long and is ideal for field tool sets. While the Bit Holder is eminently suitable for truck tool sets (which truck doesn't have screws on it?), the Bit Holder is ideal for field tool sets on adventure motorcycles. The Bit Holder is small enough that it will easily fit into the various nooks and crannies under the motorcycle's saddle and also into the miniature tool rolls most motorcycle manufacturers furnish for their field sets.
The vast majority of screws and bolts on motorcycles feature ALLEN, PHILLIPS, POZIDRIV, TORX, and slotted heads. All of these fasteners are easily serviced both at home and in the field using proper bits held and organized by the Bit Holder.
With the Bit Holder and all of the proper bits in your field set, you can venture far afield better prepared and with less worries.
The Telescoping MegaMAG Magnetic Pick-Up Tool telescopes from 7 1/8" to 30 1/4" for reaching into crevices and axle housings, and lifts up to 16 lbs. The stainless steel handle and telescoping elements are long, strong, and lightweight. The textured cushion handle covering keeps the tool secure even in wet or greasy conditions.
The goblet-shaped head pushes flux to the top of the Neodymium magnet, and focuses and concentrates the magnet's power.
The goblet-shaped head also shields the sides of the powerful Neodymium magnet from attaching to unwanted metal surfaces.
Note that the MegaMAG Magnetic Pick-Up Tool's head is very close to this bolt. This head is very powerful and will lift 16 lbs., and yet the bolt remains stationary. This is because the entire magnetic pulling force is focused directly forward and not wasted sideways.
If you orient the head so that its truncated flat is facing forward toward the bolt, just get the head near the bolt and the bolt immediately jumps and sticks to the head. If you insert the MegaMAG Magnetic Pick-Up Tool inside an axle casing to fish out a broken halfshaft stub, the goblet-shaped head will not adhere to interior walls of the axle casing. Instead, the goblet-shaped head will be drawn only to the broken halfshaft stub. This is a very powerful magnet and if it stuck to the nearest ferrous object it would be very difficult to use in confined spaces.
Telescoping Powercap Magnetic Pick-Up Tool telescopes from 6 5/8" to 33 1/4" for reaching into crevices and axle housings, and lifts 3.5 lbs. without the Powercap fitted and over 5 lbs. with the Powercap fitted.
What is a Powercap? The Powercap is similar in function to the goblet-shaped head on the Telescoping MegaMAG Magnetic Pick-Up Tool, but is removable for different applications. In the photo above, the Powercap has been removed from the Neodymium head.
Here the Powercap is in place. Magnetic force keeps the Powercap attached to the head. For applications for which the Powercap is not desired, it can be pulled away from the head and drawn back to the front of the handle. The Powercap Magnetic Pick-Up Tool may be employed with or without the Powercap to suit different applications.
For picking up ferrous objects in confined places, the Powercap will usually be fitted to prevent the powerful Neodymium head from adhering to any and all ferrous objects and surfaces in close proximity.
Note that the head with Powercap fitted in the photo above is very close to touching the drive adapter and yet the drive adapter remains perfectly stationary. This is because the Powercap redirects and focuses the tremendous power of the Neodymium magnet directly forward. There is almost zero magnetic force directed sideways.
To use the Powercap Magnetic Pick-Up Tool to pick up an object in a confined space, fit the Powercap to the head and extend the Powercap Magnetic Pick-Up Tool to the object that you want to pick up. Because the Powercap is fitted, the head will not snap onto adjacent ferrous surfaces and will smoothly go to the object sought. When the head reaches close proximity to the object sought, it will be drawn by the very powerful Neodymium magnet and snap onto the head. The Powercap Magnetic Pick-Up Tool will lift over 5 lbs. with the Powercap fitted, so drawing and retaining objects like this drive adapter is child's play for this tool. And the drive adapter shown above is much larger than the usual nuts and bolts the Powercap Magnetic Pick-Up Tool will usually be employed to retrieve.
There are other applications for when a focused magnetic force is not desired. For example, if you are trying to fish out broken CV joint particles from the swivel ball housing or broken differential particles from the axle casing, you want to collect as many pieces as possible. For these applications, the Powercap is easily pulled away from the head,
and the Powercap pulled toward the handle end of the tool.
With the Powercap removed, just getting in the proximity of a loose ferrous piece will attract that piece and collect it. The Powercap Magnetic Pick-Up Tool will pick up ferrous objects as heavy as 3.5 lbs. without the Powercap fitted, so it will easily attract and catch smaller items.
The textured cushion handle covering keeps the Powercap Magnetic Pick-Up Tool secure even in wet or greasy conditions, so you can employ it with confidence.
Telescoping MegaMAG Magnetic Pick-Up Tool and Telescoping Powercap Magnetic Pick-Up Tool are very powerful pick-up tools and most times their tremendous power is not required. The vast majority of magnetic pick-up tool jobs will consist of retrieving small screws that have fallen into some tight crevice. For these jobs, the Telescoping Pocket Magnetic Pick-Up Tool is more than up to the task.
The Telescoping Pocket Magnetic Pick-Up Tool telescopes from 5 7/8" to 25 9/16" for reaching into crevices and axle housings. The Pocket Magnetic Pick-Up Tool's Neodymium magnet is small but will lift 1.5 lbs. 1.5 lbs. may not sound like a lot, but it is a tremendous amount of weight given this tool's intended purpose.
The Pocket Magnetic Pick-Up Tool will easily lift this 3/8" drive ratchet. This is a very long ratchet that is just as long as a standard 3/8" drive breaker bar. Yet the Pocket Magnetic Pick-Up Tool will pick it up.
The tool used to pick up the 3/8" drive ratchet is a Blue-Point PT5B, which is identical to the Pocket Magnetic Pick-Up Tool in every way except for badging.
This is because Ullman Devices manufactures tools for Snap-on Tools. Ullman Devices also manufactures tools for Matco Tools and MAC Tools.
The Pocket Magnetic Pick-Up Tool is chrome-plated for easy wipe-down after use.
The Oval Telescoping Inspection Mirror With Magnetic Pick-Up Tool is another very handy pocket-sized tool, and features a 1" x 2" oval mirror for visual inspection of hidden areas and a small Neodymium magnet on the other end of the tool for picking up small ferrous objects like fallen screws. The tool telescopes from 5 5/8" to 20 3/4" and is chrome-plated for easy wipe-down after use.
The 1" x 2" oval mirror features an almost limitless number of positions for the mirror, enabling the to see behind obstructions.
The secret to the mirror's adjustability is Ullman Devices' double-ball-joint link design. The precision-engineered links are manufactured from tempered spring steel to withstand the stresses of constant repositioning. The user may adjust the tension on the ball joints for a tighter feel or a looser feel, whatever he prefers.
The Oval Telescoping Inspection Mirror With Magnetic Pick-Up Tool is so named because it is a pick-up tool as well as a mirror. The small Neodymium magnet on the other end of the tool is useful for picking up dropped fasteners and other ferrous components.
This Neodymium magnet is the smallest of all of the magnets we sell, but it is still strong enough to lift this M16 size bolt and nut.
Attracting and lifting the little screws for which this tool would regularly be used is child's play for this Neodymium magnet.
The Universal Spark Plug Gap Gauge is a handy tool for easily confirming and adjusting proper spark plug gap. The Gauge is only 1.5" in diameter, thus it fits easily into field tool sets as well as the smallest tool box. The Gauge is scaled from .020" to .100" and is usable with all common spark plug sizes.
The reverse side of the Gauge is scaled from 0.45 mm to 2.55 mm. Pewter plating over the entire tool makes the inch and metric hash marks legible and easy to read.
The flange encircling the Gauge thickens from one side of the tool to the other. Insert the flange between a spark plug's center and ground electrodes to measure the spark plug's gap.
Adjusting the spark plug gap is just as easy as measuring it. The Gauge features a flanged hole on which the ground electrode may be bent to proper clearance.
All of the foregoing Ullman Devices tools fit easily into the Bucket Boss tool organizers like the Bucket Boss Tool Roll shown above. And, of course, they will all fit easily into your tool box.
All of the foregoing tools use only premium-quality Neodymium magnets. Neodymium magnets are for real, and are used by top-quality toolmakers. These telescoping pick-up tools are manufactured by Ullman Devices and sold through professional-quality tool sellers like Snap-on Tools, Matco Tools, and MAC Tools under various private labels.
The large magnetic pick-up tool is about the size of a Sharpie marker, yet easily picks up a Land Rover front halfshaft. Such is the power of Neodymium magnets. Standard ceramic magnets do not have this kind of pulling power, which is why premium tool companies like Ullman Devices use only Neodymium magnets.
FilterMAG also uses patented Neodymium magnet technology to catch ferrous particulates floating inside the engine oil and transmission fluid. Don't be misled by the numerous copycat versions out there. There is only one FilterMAG. Nobody else utilizes the patented technology that FilterMAG does.
FilterMAG is also the only magnetic oil filtration device on the market today that uses Neodymium magnets. These high-intensity rare-earth magnets produce five to 10 times the magnetic force that ceramic magnets do. That is what separates FilterMAG from other copycat designs. FilterMAG's patented technology enables it to collect ferrous particulates as small as 2 microns in size, even though these particulates are extremely small in size and are moving quickly through the oil filter with the oil. Other copycat designs cannot do what FilterMAG does.
We also highly recommend replacing your differential drain plugs with the Land Rover Genuine Parts Magnetic Drain Plugs. The Magnetic Drain Plugs come standard on the Disco2, but also fit the front and rear differentials on Land Rover vehicles with solid axles such as the Defenders, Disco1, and Range Rover Classic. A large magnet on the tip attracts and traps metal particulates inside the axle casing and prevents these particulates from causing additional wear to the differential, gears, and bearings contained within the axle. More importantly, the presence or absence of metallic particulates on the drain plug at service time gives visible indication of possible problems with your drivetrain components. These drain plugs feature ceramic magnets and not Neodymium magnets, but they are better than no magnet at all.
