What are Magnetacks Poster Hangers?
Magnetacks are magnetic push pin poster hangers. Magnetacks use very strong neodymium magnets to safely hang posters, photos, prints, artwork, memorabilia, and more, without damaging them - no holes, tape, or gooey adhesives. Oh yeah, and NO Tools Required!
Where have I seen Magnetacks?
In 2016, Magnetacks went live on The Grommet! The Grommet is a product launch platform that finds unique, undiscovered products and helps them succeed. The Grommet only launches 3% of the products they review, so it is quite an honor to have been selected to be featured!
Since launch, over 50,000 Magnetacks have been sold around the globe. We're saving the world one poster and photo at a time!
Magnetacks Poster Hangers are comprised of two components: the Base Tack and the Coupling Magnet
The XL Base Tack is longer, for walls (~5/8"), and the Classic Base Tack is shorter, for bulletin boards (~3/8"). Each Coupling Magnet is a 1/4" x 1/4" silver cylinder. See images below for reference.
How to use a Magnetack:
First: Tack the base magnet into the wall,
Second: Place your item over the base magnet,
Third: Magnet the coupling magnet over your item!
How do Magnetacks work?
In general, Magnetacks sandwich your item between two magnets to hold it in place, making them the best way to hang posters and photos without causing any damage to your poster or photo. Whether you're trying to hang large posters, unframed photos or even a cowhide, use Magnetacks! To see Magnetacks in Action, click here!

Successful Magnetack Applications
Unsuccessful Magnetack Applications
What size hole does a Magnetack leave in my wall?
The Base Tack nail is approximately 0.050" in diameter. That is the same size as a standard thumb-tack. The tip of a sharp pencil is also approximately 0.050" in diameter.
How far off the wall will my print be? How thick is the base tack?
The Base Tack is approximately 3/16" thick so your print will "stand off" the wall approximately 3/16 inches. That is less than the thickness of a pencil.
What is the best way to separate two (or more) coupling magnets?
We recommend that you separate the Magnetack coupling magnets by sliding them apart rather than by pulling them apart. See our MagneTalk Post here for a diagram!
We accept all returns on items returned in full resalable condition. All base tacks and all coupling magnets will be counted to ensure a full return order and the purchase price of the order will be refunded in full within 5-10 business days. Return shipping will not be refunded.
