Deal or Dud: Magnetucks

Posted: Updated:
If your clothes seem to go from slick to sloppy, magnets may be the solution.

The makers of Magnetucks say their product ensures shirts stay tucked in.

Each Magnetuck comes with two pieces held together by a super strong magnet. They’re designed to sit just below the waist to keep shirts tucked in.

An ad for the product shows a man in business clothes doing pushups and jumping jacks without his shirt becoming untucked.

Neil Patel is a yoga instructor who has mastered the balance of mind, body and soul, but he hasn’t mastered the art of keeping his shirt tucked tight in his pants.

FOX 4 asked him to ditch his casual clothes for business clothes to put Magnetucks to the Deal or Dud test. To make it easier to compare, we had Patel use the product on one side of his shirt, and just like in the ad.

FOX 4 brought in IFBB pro athlete and personal trainer Jason Poston to give Patel a real workout while wearing the product.

Patel did a jumping jacket, and the side with the magnets seemed to fare at least a little better. However, when he did a squat, both sides of his shirt quickly became untucked.

 So Patel re-tucked his shirt in and tried a callisthenic warm up and stretches. Still, the shirt came out.

After re-tucking the shirt one more time, Patel did some simple sitting, reaching and stretching that one might do during a normal day.

However, even those proved to be too much for the magnets.

As for the exercises in the ad, Poston said the jumping jacks seemed to be modified for the magnets.

“A pushup will challenge the arms…not the waistline,” he said.

Patel said the Magnetucks are a dud.

Just be sure we weren't being too tough on the magnets, FOX 4’s Steve Noviello wore the product around during a normal workday, and his shirt didn't fare too much better.
