I used rFrance's design. The more surface area that touches the magnet the more force you need.

I was originally using a bolt that covered 80 percent the surface area of the magnet. I could only get it to snap 1 out of 10 times.

I have a bolt now that covers about 40 percent with a nut screwed to the end. I now achieve the snap 8 out of 10 times. This seems to be a good balance. When I get 10 out of 10 consistently I will remove the nut.

Maybe one day I will make it up to the high surface area bolt!

Very cool. I like that it has the ability to make it more and more difficult.
