Safety

At Speks, we take adult fun seriously. But we also take safety seriously.

While our products are safe with proper use for adults, they must be kept away from all children. If magnets are swallowed or inhaled, they can lead to serious injury and even death. If it’s suspected that a magnet was swallowed, please take immediate action and contact your medical professional.

General Product Safety

Speks’ products are designed by adults for adults and are safe with proper use for anyone over the age of 14. However, our products should never be given to anyone under the age of 14.

While Speks’ products are not intended for children, all of our products voluntarily meet the mechanical standards of ASTM. All Speks’ products meet CPSIA Safety Standard for Magnets 16 CFR 1262.

Swallowed magnets can damage internal organs and have resulted in death and serious injury. This is serious stuff. Speks must be kept away from ALL children and loose magnets should never be put near the nose or mouth. Seek immediate medical attention or contact the poison control center immediately if you think magnets were swallowed.

Speks 2.5mm Magnet Ball Safety

Speks 2.5mm magnet balls are for anyone 14 years of age or older. That means nerds, early adopters, head honchos, nail-biters, cuticle-pickers, all-day fidgeters, aspiring architects, design snobs, and everyone in between. Just keep them away from ALL children.

Speks meet CPSIA Safety Standard for Magnets 16 CFR 1262.

Although we’ve designed all Speks' products with safety in mind, it is possible that ingestion of any loose magnets could still cause serious injury. Swallowed magnets can damage internal organs and have resulted in death and serious injury. This is serious stuff. Speks' products must be kept away from ALL children and loose magnets should never be put near the nose or mouth. Seek immediate medical attention or contact the poison control center immediately if you think magnets were swallowed.

In 2022, the Consumer Product Safety Commission banned magnets with a much higher magnetic strength than Speks. Speks have a magnet strength of about 90% less than those magnets and were not part of the ban. Speks are fully compliant with CPSIA Safety Standard for Magnets 16 CFR 1262.

Speks 2.5mm magnet balls were designed with safety in mind. While most brands of magnet ball sets are 5mm in diameter, Speks are half of that size. Because of this, the magnetic flux index (a fancy way of measuring strength) is less than 50 kG2 mm2. This is many orders of magnitude below other magnet sets containing magnets with a magnetic flux index of 300-500 kg²mm² that have caused intestinal perforations in the past. Specifically, accredited 3rd party tests of Speks 2.5mm magnets report a flux index of between 20-35 kg²mm².

Speks should be played with on a table or desk, safely out of reach from children. After playing with Speks, store them in the carrying case that comes in every set. Make sure to collect all magnets when you’re finished using them and they are not stored in a place easily accessible to children.

Seek immediate medical attention or contact the poison control center immediately if you think magnets were ingested, as x-rays and prompt surgical removal may be required. Do not wait for symptoms to appear as it may become too late for medical intervention.

If you suspect any loose magnets were swallowed or inhaled, contact your medical professional right away. If the product involved was a 2.5mm Speks magnet, you should let them know that the flux index (fancy language for “strength”) of the magnet is under 50 kG2 mm2 and thus Speks not need to be treated in the same way as much stronger magnets.

Crags Magnetic Putty Safety Information

Crags consist of 500+ ferrite magnetic stones in a metal tin.

Crags are fully compliant with CPSIA Safety Standard for Magnets 16 CFR 1262. 

Although we’ve designed Crags with safety in mind, it is possible that ingestion of any magnets could still cause serious injury. Swallowed magnets can damage internal organs and have resulted in death and serious injury. This is serious stuff. Crags must be kept away from ALL children and should never be put near the nose or mouth. Seek immediate medical attention or contact the poison control center immediately if you think magnets were swallowed.

Retailer Safety Information

Speks' products are safely sold in thousands of retail locations around the world. However, stores that sellexclusivelychildren’s products should not carry Speks. We reserve the right to cease sales to any retail location found to be selling only products for children.

Retailers offering Speks' products must agree to display Speks along with other ages 14+ products and not with children’s products. Examples of appropriate places to advertise or display Speks would be alongside kites, adult puzzles, science or modeling kits, or on a front counter next to fidget or adult impulse products.

Yes. Please find additional resources herealong with an in-store sign that can be printed and placed alongside Speks' products.
