A must have automotive accessory

I used to scoff at people that used things like this because I used to feel that any type of container or bowl would work just fine to hold nuts and bolts while you worked on your project.  Well, that all changed when I accidentally knocked over my container and spilled all my nuts and bolts all over the floor and some made it into the floor drain.  My friend walked over with of these bowls and was holding it upside down as he gave me a hard time about my misfortune.

I now own one of these bowls and though I've had some mishaps, I haven't lost anything in awhile.

Weak Magnet

Magnet is not very strong at all. Not great will not hold a screw when tipped sideways. I reccomend buying a better product. It may be cheap, but it doesn't help. Now I bought something I am just going to replace with something better

pretty standard

you get what you pay for with this unit? pretty standard stuff and it does the job. if you need a basic magnetic bowl, this is it. I've needed one for a while now and it works great.

Very Useful

It has a strong magnet. I had been using a small plastic bowl but for the price of this magnet bowl I thought I'd give it a try. It is very useful because your screws and nuts don't roll around.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

exactly what you expect

This is a good solid item, as the headline states exactly what you expect. Good strong magnet so you can store it on the side or top of your toolbox. Will do what it should, hold nuts and bolts, and at the price you can't beat it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

JUST AS EXPECTED

My dad has needed this simple magnetic bowl for so long. We finally decided to purchase it for him. He loves it and will use it until the end of time. It works just like it is supposed to. No more searching for screws or bolts in the grass for a simple job. Thanks for a great product!!

Simply the best!

The craftsman Magnet bowl is Simply the best item to add to any tool box or garage. I own two of these item's they come in handy under the hood for collecting fender bolts nuts whatever you can toss in there. If you've got nice flat metal surface to place it on it's not going to move as you work.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

works well

Looks nice and works as advertised. I have even used it when I dropped a small screw in the carpet and it attached to the bowl. I may order another one for the shop. As we work on something I keep it with us and we haven't lost anything yet. I also separate the screws in different areas of the bowl so there is no confusion when putting them back in.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Item and the Guys fought over it

Bought it for dirty santa and it was the talk of the party...it quickly was snatched up by one, two, three people and then no more trades. I bought two and my brother in law lost his at dirty santa, and he laughed so hard and was happy when he pulled it out of the bag. He said it is the perfect thing for when he works on cars.
