Magnet gun caddy

© By Othmar Vohringer

One 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 rod 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. To learn more about the Magnet Gun Caddy or find out where to buy it visit

Wow, is right! I have needed one of these babies for many years. I, too, cannot tell you how many times I have had my rod, reel, and lure smack ground after tipping over from the slightest movement or shake of the vehicle as I open the tail gate or hatchback. Thanks for the review and pointing me to where I can get one.

Initially when I got the Magnet Gun Caddy I never thought of using it for the fishing rods. Then on a hunch I tried it and hey presto! It works as a rod holder too.

I am very impressed with this product and most likely will have it on offer in my website store within a few days.

That does look like a handy tool. I sure could have used that once before after having my shotgun fall over and knock the scope out of wack.

I hear you Rick. There are a few scratches on my truck from guns rifles and fishing rods leaning against it and then falling. The Magnetic Gun Caddy will prevent that from ever happening again. It's a real handy tool to have.

Othmar - Let me know when you have them "online" and I will send you an order. Perhaps I could do a review of the product also and refer folks to your store.

Thanks Mel I appreciate that. I'll let you know when it is all set up and ready to go.

Othmar, I have one of these Magnet Gun Caddies and they are great for anything like fishing rods as you mentioned.

The one huge drawback to this item in California is the wardens consider a gun "in the vehicle" when leaned against a vehicle. If you have a loaded gun leaning against the truck they can cite you for it. I can see the safety issue with leaning loaded guns against a vehicle, I've witnessed more than one fall over when someone jumped into the vehicle.

Jesse it says right on the package and on the product "Unload Gun Before Using This Product".

As a firearm and hunter safety instructor I always emphasize that no matter where a gun is stored, transported in or on a vehicle unload it first.
