Magnetig arms are rivited to body and pivoting is little tight. This actually makes them much slower to set in place and right angle. I think its better in use when hinges of the magnets are loose and pivots freely, like in the video.
Personally i am more clamps using guy than magnets, but the video was nice and those clips works nicely too.
