Woodworking Tool News - Rockler Magnetic Cord Keeper

Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced the Magnetic Cord Keeper, a rare Earth magnetic clip that keeps unplugged power tool cords off the ground and out of the way. This is particularly useful when moving heavy tools around the shop and while cleaning a shop. Used with a table saw, scroll saw, band saw, or other power tool, the Magnetic Cord Keeper efficiently secures loose cords and cord endings to any ferrous metal object, keeping cords neatly organized and easily accessible when needed. Storing cords off the floor also eliminates potential tripping accidents and keeps the cord ending free of shop floor debris, preventing possible electrical hazards.

Measuring just 1-1/2" in diameter x 7/8" thick, the compact Magnetic Cord Keeper has a 5/16" opening that holds a standard-thickness power cord. The magnet's notched opening is also conveniently sized for holding pens, pencils or drill chucks, making it possible to keep commonly used items near and in plain sight where they won't easily be missed or forgotten. The Magnetic Cord Keeper also reduces wear and tear on the back by eliminating the need to bend at the waist to pick up unplugged cords.

The Magnetic Cord Keepers (42388) retail for $7.99 per pack of two. They are available at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler's independent resellers,, or in the Rockler catalog. For store locations or a free catalog, please visit or call 1-877-ROCKLER.
