The Guide: Magna Clamp

Use: Magnet
Appearances: DW: Army of Ghosts/Doomsday

Magna-Clamps were metal devices found by Torchwood 1. When attached to an object it cancels the objects mass enabling it to be easily lifted. They are capable of lifting two Imperial ton's even if only held in one hand. Magna-Clamps were not available for public use as Jackie found out after remarking it would help her with her shopping. They are activated by pressing a button on the handle.

1.Torchwood 1 found the Magna-Clamps buried in a crashed spaceship (possibly the Vinvocci spaceship that also held the Immortality Gate) at the foot of Mt. Snowdon.
2.During the Battle of Canary Wharf the Doctor and Rose Tyler used the Magna-Clamps to hold onto a wall when the Void was open. This stopped them from falling into the Void until Rose let go and almost fell in only for Pete Tyler to catch her.
