YOUR EXCLUSIVE GUIDE TO MAGNET FISHING
One of the most important items in the kit is the bottle of threadlocker. It resembles a bottle of glue. You are going to want to follow the video to apply the threadlocker to your threads on your magnets bolt. This will make sure that you do not loose your magnet when tossing it out to collect your treasures. Without it, you most likely will have your magnet unscrew and loose it. No bueno. Thats why we included this so you just do not have to worry.
ALPHA and DUAL SERIES NOTES
Apply threadlocker in the same way with the bolt on the ALPHA series clamp style magnets. With the DUAL series magnets, you can apply threadlocker to the side bolt if you want double sided action, or you can apply it to the top if you're looking for a single sided action. The threadlocker included with the dual series is not permanent, but remember that it is tough to undo.
