Magnets are a well known way to operate a starting gate. Rival Racing Technologies' magnetic latch kit is an economical way to take the guess work out of the setup process. It is specially designed to work well with the iGate BMX controller, with 180kg or 350LBS max holding force. Depending on your gate setup, this may be enough for a 2-man gate. (Note that two magnets can be operated from one iGate BMX controller, if more holding force is needed.)

The armature plate (that the magnet latches onto) is our own proprietary design that features a special anti-residual magnetism feature for consistent and positive release every time. This is one valuable distinction from other types of magnets on the market that have unpredictable release characteristics and may even hang up or overheat if used on a starting gate.

Rival Racing Technologies' mounting brackets are designed for flexible mounting onto virtually any starting gate. The brackets are made from 6061 aircraft aluminum, which is strong yet soft enough to easily drill your own mounting holes if needed. Detailed setup instructions are available from our Downloads page.

The kit includes the matching armature plate, all mounting brackets needed and an 8ft power cable that plugs into the iGate BMX controller. Magnet and armature plate are approx. 7" x 2.8".
