“What could possibly be better than an OpenLOCK clip? Why, a magnetic OpenLOCK clip, of course!”
The OpenLOCK Magnetic is an OpenLOCK magnetic adapter clip. It is interchangeable with other OpenLOCK clips, but is cut in half with two holes for magnets to be inserted.
The two holes are designed to use 3mm x 4mm barrel magnets (1/8” x 1/8” will work too).
This product is compatible with all OpenLOCK tiles.

Note: Aussie Magnets is 1/3rd cheaper for a batch of 100 magnets than magnet.com.au, and I’ve always found them to be fast shipping & great quality. https://aussiemagnets.com.au/product/–3-x—4mm-Rod-%28Rare-Earth%29–%28Pack-of-100%29.html

Good suggestion, i had added it to the list in the notes.

I really like this design and I am going to make a bunch up once I get some magnets, however I was just curious why you went with 4mm deep slots as opposed to like 1 or 2 mm deep slots?

You can use magnets up to 4mm thick, these offer the best connection.

Any chance of getting a sphere magnet clips similar to what infinitylock did?

We can add this to the suggestion list for development queue.

How do you use these on standalone columns at wall junctions since you can’t fill both sides of a port? I imagine I could cut down a clip and glue it in place, or just use walls with connected columns/longer walls, but it seems like there would be no way to make sure your columns work in every configuration with just one clip per port

The columns can only ever have 2 clips inserted from any direction. An alternative would be to print with magnetic clips in the print or cut and glue them afterwards.
