DLOS Shunters Poles
Suitable for most gauges including 4mm (00, 0-16.5) and 7mm (O) gauge.

A small pen type torch that is powered by 2 AAA batteries (not included) attached to which is a magnet (two sizes available) and used for coupling and uncoupling three-link and screw-type couplings. The smaller one is aimed at both 4mm and 7mm modellers, while the larger variety is more towards 7mm. The distance of the magnet from the pen is easily adjustable to suit everyone's own taste. In order to be attracted to the magnet, the couplings do need to be ferrous, but for those that are not, it is possible to glue a small part of a cut down staple onto the bottom link of the coupling to allow the magnet to be attracted to it.

While the pole does not require the batteries to work, they do power the torch which provides added light onto the coupling area, and feedback from customers has been very complimentary on how much easier it has made dealing with three-link couplings.
