Fixing the problems - quickly and easily
Friday, 31 March 2017 | Admin
Whilst every online retailer aims to ensure only the best customer experience for all customers, there will inevitably be times when something goes wrong. For example, in the case of magnetic bracelets with links, it is possible - even with the best will in the world - for some people to estimate the size of their wrist wrong. (I nearly wrote "misunderestimate".) Of course this can particularly be a problem if you are buying the bracelet for some one else.
Now in the case of under-estimation of course, there is not much you can do except get a replacement. However, if you overestimate the wrist size, then it is a relatively easy problem to solve. All you have to do is remove one or two links. In fact MPS makes this particularly easy, by providing a free links removal tool with each order for a links bracelet. However, including it is all very well, but how do you use it?
Fortunately that is not a problem for Magnetic Products Store customers, because the MPS website has a whole set of Troubleshooting pages and one of these explains clearly and concisely how to use the tool. And the explanations are supported by equally clear pictures and diagrams.
So how would you go about removing links from your MPS bracelet? first of all, please note that it has two extra push pins stored in the base. The push pin is the pin that is used to push out the pins that hold the links in place.
The next thing to do is identify the correct side to place the tip of the push pin. The picture below illustrates the wrong side and the right side for this operation.
After aligning the push pin with the pin you are trying to remove, you turn the handle slowly to push the pin out gently.
When the pin is partially out - enough to get a grip on it - you can of course pull it the rest of the way.
Obviously you have to repeat this process on the other side of the link or group of links that you want to remove. Then the next step is, of course, to reconnect what is left. This is shown below.
Then, finally, the same tool is used to push the pin the rest of the way, thereby completing the process.
And that's really all there is to it. Happy resizing.
More mythical monsters
Saturday, 18 February 2017 | Admin
Okay so last time around we talked about vampires, zombies and werewolves and how they could be kept at bay by wearing the appropriate MPS bracelet. But there's more to mythical monsters than those. I feel kind of bad banging on about such negative vibes just after St. Valentine's Day. However, mythical monsters - like time - wait for no man. Moreover they show no special deference to the blessed saints. Neither, for that matter, do they show an iota of respect for the Church, the Queen, the Pope or the Chief Rabbi.
And of course they like to slip in when our guard is down - like Trojan viruses - or when we're distracted by the great festivities around us. In the case of Britain, "great festivities" means not so much religion but more like the venerable sporting events of the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race and the Grand National at Aintree, both of which lie ahead in the not-too-distant future.
So what might these nasty little beasties get up to while the distracted punters are staking wads of cash on the G-G's and the ladies are swooning over the muscle-bound rowers who happen to have caught their eye?
Well first of all, they might unleash a ghoul upon us. Now, to be honest, I've never really been entirely sure just what a ghoul actually is. I remember a friend of mine in my primary school wandering aimlessly around the playground saying "Let's have a war - the boys against the ghouls." But I'm not quite convinced that he actually meant it the way it sounded.
Then there was my pompous friend from Eton - fresh from a visit to the College of Arms where his father was a herald - telling me that his family crest included Gules Argent. I asked him if that was any relative of Rod Argent, but he was not amused. (In fact he was more than a little confused.)
But I digress. My point here is simply that whatever these gulies might do - no I don't mean THOSE gulies ladies - it's important to have a good defence against them. So, to this worthy end, Magnetic Products Store is offering an anti-Ghouls magnetic bracelet to keep them old monsters at bay!
OK that's as maybe, but what about the Golem? Well bear in mind that there are two types of Golem. There is ancient Golem of Jewish legend and mythology on the one hand, who is actually not so bad. But there is also the more recent Golem from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings who really is an evil so-and-so. But have no fear: MPS also offers a Golem defence.
Finally if you're worried about warlocks - which means not "male magician" or wizard, but rather "deceiver" - then you're in luck too because MPS also offers a magnetic bracelet that repels warlocks.
So whether its one of the two G's or the big W that scares the bejesus out of you, don't worry mate - Magnetic Products Store has it covered!
Keeping vampires, werewolves and zombies at bay
Friday, 9 December 2016 | Admin
At this time of year - peace to earth and goodwill to all men - we still have to worry about all those who wish to do us harm: vampires, werewolves, zombies, etc. Did I detect a skeptical raised eyebrow Roger Moore? Well don't be so surprised. We can argue over whether these creatures exist but they fall into a category known to risk-managers as "low-probability, high impact." That means it's unlikely to happen but likely to be devastating if it does. A bit like a nuclear war. And we DO have nuclear bunkers, even if they're only available to the rich, the royals and the senior politicos and their civil service minions.
But why should the rest of us be deprived of the necessary level of protection? I don't mean nuclear war. There's precious little we can do about that. Magnetic bracelets can't stop radiation. And they can't stop politicians from being stupid. (Can anything?)
But at least we should have some basic - and affordable - protection against the un-dead, the creatures that come out when the moon is full and - most important of all - nocturnal bloodsuckers. (No I don't mean the taxman!)
Well now - thanks to Magnetic Products Store - you can. They are offering affordable magnetic bracelets that can repel vampires. Yes Vampires. MPS can absolutely guarantee that if you re wearing one of these bracelets, you will never be attacked by a vampire. (We make no representations regarding vampire bats, but they are usually found in South America.) But actual vampires? We absolutely promise that if you wear this bracelet, you want be attacked by a vampire!
But what of Zombies and Werewolves. Well the accused creatures only come out when there's a full moon. Nevertheless, to give you all-month-round security. MPS offers a magnetic bracelet that wards off werewolves.
And finally zombies. What can is say? You may think these are just a teenage obsession. But can be sure? especially when the insurance is so affordable? So if you want a bracelet t protect you against zombies, this is the one.
Magnetic Bracelets for Rio 2016
Saturday, 13 August 2016 | Admin
If you're interested in buying magnetic bracelets, what is the first thing you do? Quite likely, it is simply to look on the internet. Right? But when you do a search for the term "magnetic bracelets" in any of the leading search engines, you are greeted by a plethora of sites selling a vast range of magnetic therapy products from which to choose.
However, what is interesting is that the biggest such site in Europe - and the second biggest in the world - only appears at the very bottom of the list. Clearly, that is not much help if you are suffering from arthritis or looking for something to protect you from sports injury.
This is more to do with the way search engines work and there is pretty much nothing you can do about, except scan down the page to make sure that you are finding the best site. Unlike sport - or rather exactly like sport - coming first doesn't necessarily mean that they are the best. In fact, this analogy is very apt, because, for the last few decades, the Olympic games and other sports have been plagued by the scourge of cheating, in the form of athletes using anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs.
In the same way, some online retailers are able to bump up their search results by all manner of illicit means. These means go by the name "black hat" and they are to the online world what steroids (and bribery/gambling rackets) are to sport. And the analogy goes even further, because, in the face of these almost insurmountable problems, there is a grave temptation to embrace the philosophy known as: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!
However, I myself do not espouse this particular view. I would rather be the last man standing in the realm of honesty (perhaps that should be the first man falling!) that embrace the dishonest approach of those whom I despise.
But if you are interested in taking up sport and inspired by the current spectacular of Rio 2016 - and let's face it, the Olympics always inspire us couch potatoes to take up sport - then you'll find that Magnetic Products Store has a fine collection of sports wrisbands and bracelets for men and women.
This includes the excellent ionTopia Range that has set the magnetic therapy world buzzing with its wonderfully diverse range of magnetic bracelets, bangles and wrist bands with powerful sets of magnets (3000 Gauss).
Just take a look at these and you'll see what I mean:
Play up and play the game!

Well, the sporting season is now really upon. Even as I speak Serena Williams is smashing her way to an almost certain victory in the Ladies Singles final at Wimbledon. And later today Portugal meets France in what promises to be an exciting Euro 2016 soccer final. Yes, the sporting season that began with the Grand National and the Oxford-Cambridge boat race is now well and truly upon us.
But as you know, sporting events invariably have one effect on the population: they encourage us to take up sports... at least for a short while. And with all these unfit but well-meaning amateurs taking up sport, comes the inevitable spate of sports injuries. Now I'm not talking smashed faces in boxing and rugby or people being burnt or crushed in formula 1 motor racing. I mean more like those sprained wrists in golf and twisted ankles in running and tennis.
These are endemic to sport and although it is possible to reduce the risk, it is virtually impossible to eliminate it entirely, unless one gives up sport, which would rather defeat the purpose. I say this not to worry you, but only to make you aware that where this a problem there is usually - if not always - a solution. So now is the time to consider getting a sports bracelet like the AUGUSTA BIO Golfers Magnetic Therapy Bracelet with Leather Strap on the left or the Super Prime Silicon jet black wristband on the right.
These are just a small sample of the sports bracelets available from Magnetic Products Store and the one above has the distinction of having the most powerful magnet in the MPS range - coming in at a whopping 6500 Gauss. It is also in the MPS sale and is currently available at £10 off it's normal price.
The one on the right is one of several colours of these magnificently strong hi-grade silicone wristbands that are guaranteed not to break. Now wearing a sports wristband does not make you good at sport. But it can be a step in the right direction. And it can motivate you to put it to good use.
So buy the wristband now. And then take up the racket or club or bat and get out there and start practicing!
The biggest range in the world
Tuesday, 31 May 2016 | Admin
A lot of people may be unaware of the fact that Magnetic Products Store has the biggest range of magnetic bracelets and magnetic bangles in the world - in addition to a whole host of related products, like magnetic necklaces, anklets, wraps and supports for athletes and golfers.
I don't just mean the sizes. I mean the actual range. Take, for example, copper magnetic bracelets. MPS has 46 items on these pages alone - and copper is not even their main business! Of course, these include bangles, links bracelets and expanding bracelets. But that is still only one range within the MPS pantheon of magnetic products.
But what about titanium? They've got a whole load of those. Try 102. That's right, 102 different types of titanium magnetic bracelets. This includes jet black, double strength, 4-in-1 Bio elements bracelets... and titanium bracelets incorporating Swarowski elements, like the one on the right, below.
And then there are the stainless steel bracelets. They got some beautiful ones in their collection. Then there are the energy pendants and the gemstone collections.
The big question is, why don't we see more magnetic bracelets on the high street? After all, there must be a market for such beautiful products. Ah yes, there certainly is. But going to the high street is expensive. And it is surely better, at this stage, to use that money to offer a wide range of magnetic bracelets to the public.
Remember that even in the online world, not everything is equal. Some magnetic bracelets are better than others. Some lines are better than others. And some vendors are better than others. Magnetic Products Store is very much top-of-the-range in terms of both quality and variety.

One of my favourite types of item in the very extensive range at Magnetic Products Store is the energy pendants. I just can't get enough of them - literally. The thing I like about them is that they are all so wonderfully different. There's love, like the Nested Love Lock on the right. There's a music theme. There's playing cards (the ace of spades). There's a butterfly. There's a flame. There's stainless steel with its shiny silver finish. There's gold plated.
I love them all. No wonder I am waxing poetic and lyrical as I sing their praises. Variety is the spice of life, as they say.
Now you're probably thinking that I've gone a bit over the top. After all, they're only pendants after all. But that's my point. They are nice to look at and they have magnets and if I love them then I am free to say so. To make a really bad pun, I am IndiPENDANT.
Okay, I got carried away there. But I do like all of them. I admit that I have my special favourites. But this seems to change over time. At one time it might be the gold-plated butterfly (right), at other times, it might be the ace of spaces (below).
My older sister would no doubt like the Lover Never Dies pendant, because she likes the musical of the same name. While at other times, I might favour the Dual Plates Flame. That's my point, you see, it fluctuates. Just like my energy levels.
Just like most people's energy levels in fact.
Of course, not everyone likes them. In my internet searching, I found one site that set out to "warn" people against these pendants, claiming that they are the devil's work! Don't you just love a good bit of paranoia, once in a while.
Anyway, my own view is that they are the work of skilled designers and good manufacturers or craftsmen. And I will continue to wear them if, as and when the fancy grabs me.
Another type of product that I like is the steel bangle. I have said this before and I make no apology for saying it again. What I like about them most is their futuristic appearance.
But if one is really worried about the devil, then the bangle below ought to keep "old horny" away.
For the rest of us, buy an energy pendant... or a few...
