When attaching a magnetic mounting pad to a large or heavy non-ferromagnetic object, such as a taxi sign, the best type to choose would be the threaded stud magnetic mounting pad.

This is because the threaded stud magnetic mounting pad has a more secure connection with the non-ferromagnetic object due to its attachment with a nylon insert lock nut.
The nut ensures that the sign is held securely, so that the large sign will not become a danger to other road users in adverse weather conditions.
The threaded stud magnetic mounting pad’s increased size in comparison to the through hole magnetic mounting pad also aids the attachment of large objects.
The increased size means that the magnet has a larger surface area to make contact with the ferromagnetic material.
Through hole magnetic mounting pad
A through hole magnetic mounting pad is particularly useful for holding small non-ferromagnetic materials, such as small taxi signs.
This is because its overall area is a lot smaller than that of a threaded stud magnetic mounting pad.

In addition, a pair of screws inserted through the holes in the mounting pad will not be able to hold the material as securely as a threaded stud and nylon insert lock nut.
This means that they can only hold lightweight objects.
