03 Insulated Wall with Drop Magnet – Jonard Tools MP-700


The installer drills an off-center hole
three quarters of an inch in diameter approximately one inch from the edge of
the header. This will allow the leader drop magnet to be correctly placed in
the insulation. When the drilled hole is complete, the leader portion of the
leader drop magnet should be placed in the hole. Once the leader makes contact
with the insulation, apply slight pressure and rotate until it freely
drops into the insulation. At this point, move the leader up and down in the
insulation to create a pocket for the drop magnet. The pocket must be within
one-half inch of the sheet rock for the retriever unit to correctly couple with
the drop magnet. Once the pocket has been created, attach the cable or pull line
and push the leader drop magnet down past the connection point of the leader. The installer should always leave an
adequate loop in the cable to accommodate the wall height. The
installer will now use the retriever unit to locate the drop magnet suspended
in the wall. Slowly move the retriever unit in a left-to-right motion down the
wall. When the retriever unit passes over the drop magnet, it will become
magnetically attached to the wall. This connection verifies the correct wall
cavity as well as the drop magnet location. The retriever unit will suspend
itself on the wall once it is connected to the drop magnet. After the drop magnet
is located, the installer moves the retriever unit left to right to
correctly couple the leader magnet. The retriever unit is then pulled down the
wall to the desired outlet location by using quick 2 inch vertical strokes. For
maximum pull strength the retriever unit should always be pulled, not pushed. When
the installer is satisfied with the outlet location, a 1 and 1/8th inch hole is
drilled to retrieve the drop magnet. When the hole is complete, the installer
guides the retriever unit to the hole and retrieves the drop magnet.
