Magnetic Money Clip

Introduction: Magnetic Money Clip

About: I am an author and a maker. My current project is Santa's Shop. I'm working on a science fiction type book--more later. @EngineerRigsby

This money clip uses magnets to keep a grip on folding currency. It also doubles as a refrigerator magnet/note holder.

The magnets are quite strong, so keep this away from anything that is sensitive to strong magnetic fields.

Step 2:

First, orient the magnets so that they are attracting each other.  Next, slide them into the money clip.

They have so much attraction that they will never fall out, thus there is no need to glue them or plug the ends of the holes.

Step 3:

You can remove the money clip from your pocket and place it on the refrigerator or a file cabinet.

The clip will also grip a large sheet of paper with ease.
