Get this from Alipexpress:

"15000GS Universal Magnetic Detacher Tag Remover Magnet 1 Piece Hook Detacher Key Detacher EAS Security Tag Remover 100% Work"

Works for me, its big but goes in your ass pocket easily and covered by a sweater or jacket. I wasted enough money on smaller neodymium magnets. Just get something that is specifically designed for detaching at a reasonable strength / size.

Be careful with magnets. Some security devices can detect them as soon as you walk into a store and silently alert security. My suggestion is bring the magnet into the store (possibly stitched into your jacket or something) a couple times to case the place, maybe even go as far as to deliberately seem MILDLY suspicious. Keep some kind of cute magnet keychain on your person as well so you have an excuse (albeit a relatively weak one since those machines aren't set off by regular magnets lol). Regardless, if they pull you aside, you'll know that they can detect the magnet.

Since you won't have stolen anything, you'll be free to go, and since all stores in a chain generally have the same types of security, you'll now know that entire chain can (or can not) detect magnets. I found this out doing extensive research on different types of LP detectors and I'm glad I did. I added this as part of my "casing a place" research and found two stores that detect magnets where I otherwise might have been caught.

Do you thing I could wrap the magnet in tin foil when entering and exiting the store?

I’ve seen this mentioned here and there, about the entrance scanners of some places having the technology to go off if it detects specific magnets. Does anyone have more exact info on that? Ie., places that they know do that?
