At 5S Supply we strive to continuously introduce new and innovative products and services, so I am excited to tell you about one of our newest items – Magwear Magnetic Wristbands

This ingenious accessory will surely aid your Lean efforts by reducing walking waste, search time and help to keep needed items close at hand and at point-of-use.    

No need to hold screws, nails and bolts in your mouth (your dentist will surely be happy) pocket, or climb down the ladder to retrieve them.  Inside the rugged plastic caddy which measures approximately 3” x 3” and is ¾” deep, is an intensely powerful magnet which holds most metallic objects including screws, nails, and small tools.  You can even pile your hardware in layers.  Trust me it really works! 

The product adjusts to fit wrists of any size and is available in red or black.  It weighs just 4 ounces so it won’t weigh you down and can even be attached to your belt in case you might like to make a new fashion statement. 

Magwear has 1,000’s of uses and is appropriate for the shopfloor, assembly lines,maintenance work, constructions sites, autobody shops and even the office (staples, binder clips, tacs).  It’s also the perfect companion for any home improvement project and especially useful on ladders, under cars, in crawlspaces, while 5S’ing your garage and even sewing projects.  I know I will be wearing mine as I build a new deck in our backyard later this spring (all tips are welcome!) .

My favorite part about this new item is that it was another great idea from our Customer Care Manager, Jennifer Molski (she invented the 5S Sticky Tag and our popular 5S Pins).  At 5S Supply we try to inspire creativity and independent thinking in all of our employees and this is another fine example.  It is Jim Womack who reminds us that the embodiment of respect for employees is offering them the courage to try.  Thanks Jennifer, for trying!  And stay tuned as next month we will introduce a new Lean product created by one of our Customers! 

So stop going nuts looking for bolts (pun intended) and get your Magwear Magnetic Wristband today!  We are pleased to offer this product on sale for an introductory price of $15.95 (regular $17.95) and you can order it now or check out more information for Magwear
