The Standard Magnetic tie-down system includes two N38 Nickel plated magnets with a diameter of 7/8 and 1/2 inch thick. Perfect for Stop Motion Animation!

Although less powerful than the Professional system, our Standard magnetic tie-down system is still capable of holding 10KG of steel. This is more than enough for most applications. They are N38 Nickel Plated and measure D7/8 x 1/2 inch. The system is compatible with all of our Armatures as well as our rigging system.

Using magnets to tie-down your stop motion means that you dont need to worry about fitting in the holes needed for threaded tie-down. This means that you can have more elaborate and detailed surfaces on your set. In addition, threaded tie-down can often be fiddly and time consuming. Using magnets is usually a much quicker way of working. At Aardman they often use magnets to tie-down their characters.

It is important that you use a ferrous base for your set for magnetic tie-down to work. Although these magnets are very powerful, they will lose strength very quickly when passing through a non-ferrous material. We recommend perforated steel for the very best result and we offer both a complete animation stage as well as sheets of galvanised perforated steel which are ideal for this.
