Will Magnet Camera Holders Lose Bond If Lightning Strikes?

[Mod note: Poster is from Magdaddy.com]

In some of our prior discussions we were asked about what would happen if a building took a direct lightning strike.

In the previous thread it was stated that nothing would happen and that there would be no loss of magnet pull force. I can now tell you firsthand that we were absolutely correct. Last week Wednesday around 9AM our building took a direct hit.

It blew out all of our power and our modem along with a few other things. Never felt anything like that before in my life. The good thing to come out of it is that all of out magnetic fasteners were all still in place with no effect at all. We took advantage of the situation and took some down and tested the pull force. It tested perfect to spec.
