Magnetic Grabber®

The Magnetic Grabber® is a vehicle exhaust removal device that provides a very quick, easy and controlled connection and disconnection to a vehicle exhaust system.

  • All nozzles are easy and quick to connect and disconnect
  • Click and seal concept
  • Self-aligning nozzle

Easy to operate - “Click and Seal”

The Magnetic Grabber® is a vehicle exhaust removal device that through a conical design, integrated magnets and centre self-alignment, provides very quick, easy and controlled connection and disconnection to a vehicle’s exhaust system. This nozzle is used mainly in areas where the vehicle is moving through an enclosed space, like fire stations.

The conical design makes attaching the Magnetic Grabber® to the vehicle extremely user friendly. At the sound of a clear “click” you know you have a correctly “sealed” connection of the system to the vehicle, minimizing the danger of diesel exhaust emissions in the station. The strategically positioned magnets ensure a good connection to the vehicle, as well as a controlled automatic disconnect when the vehicle exits the station.

The Magnetic Grabber® won the red dot product design award 2011. The red dot design award dates back to 1955 and is the world’s largest and most distinguished design competition.
