Magnet is super strong, hard to get off but it did not hold my purse, i dont think my purse if 40lbs... but it just slid down ended up on floor anyway... maybe good for a party purse not my normal one.
These are strong magnets and work perfectly for hanging keys on.
I ordered the 25 lb ones and they are great, but not close to 25 lbs...but does work for what I need.
However if I put it on the top part of a washing machine and hung my purse off the side, then it held fine.So not exactly what I wanted - which was something where I could just hang my purse off whatever metal object was handy - but I might be able to use it sometimes.Plan on replacing the carabiners.
The hooks don't feel that strong, but the magnet is super strong.
This is NOT 40# holding capable magnet, it won't even hold a mere 8.2 lbs.!
Attached to a steel cabinet would not hold up my 13 lb back back.
Just not for my purse.
It was a 25 lb.
My purse is only 5-1/2 pounds and the magnet did not hold it.
