Magnet Gun Caddy

gun_caddy1.jpgOne of the perks of being an outdoor writer is that we get new products to field test and then write about our findings.

In the past I have field-tested and reviewed many products. Some of the products leave me scratching my head and asking myself “What were they thinking?” (Such products will never make into my reviews).

While I have found that the majority of products I’ve tested to be useful there are other products that make me go “Wow, why didn’t someone think of that a long time ago?”

The Magnet Gun Caddy is one of these rare “Wow” moments and as with most of these exceptional products the genius lays in the sheer simplicity of the design that fulfills a real need. I lost count of how many times I came back to the truck from a hunting or fishing trip with both hands full of gear. I would have to lean the rifle, gun or fishing rod against the truck to free one hand up to get the key out of my pocket and unlock the truck.

More times than I care to remember the firearm or gun slipped and fell to the ground scratching the paint on the truck in the course of it. With the Magnet Gun Caddy this will never happen again. What is it? The Magnet Gun Caddy is a magnetic gun holder that will, due to a padded magnetic plate, stick to any metallic surface. The Magnet Gun Caddy can be placed on the side of the truck or the gun cabinet and holds your gun, rifle or fishing rod firmly in place.

Measuring 2 ¼” x 1¾ “ x 2 ¼ “ the Magnet Gun Caddy fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. When I leave my truck I put the Magnet Gun Caddy in my pocket or carry it in my pack.

On returning I take the Magnet Gun Caddy and stick it on the side of my truck and hey presto! I have a handy gun or rod holder and don’t need to worry about scratching the paint or the gun falling over.

The high-density rubber foam clamp holds most single barrel and over/under shotguns, rifles and all fishing rods. I now take the Magnet Gun Caddy on all my hunting and fishing trips and wonder how I did without one for so long. This is without a doubt the handiest gadget I have come across in a very long time.
