Hi, I obtained a Koehler 201 safety lamp and know it requires a "strong" magnet to release the lock mechanism but I guess the magnet I have is not strong enough (just a horseshoe magnet, not specifically for safety lamps). Two questions: Does anyone know how to obtain the "correct" magnet for this lamp? AND/OR What would be a specific example of a generic magnet that will work (I don't want to purchase a magnet from Amazon and have it not be strong enough...so some numbers or specs would be what I'm looking for)?

Also, if anyone has any useful info on this lamp like diagrams, instructions (as to ideal flame height, IDEAL fuel, etc), where to get replacement wick (or specs on what type of generic wick would work (this is a flat wick), or any useful literature....it would be appreciated. Thanks

well, just figured I'd update and say that a simple horseshoe mag (1" width) capable of supporting 10 lbs purchased at True Value ($10) is sufficient to open the lock on the Koehler 201.
