Handheld magnifiers are often called magnifying glasses. They feature a convex lens surrounded by a plasic or metal frame that is attached to a handle. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes with round and rectangual shapes being the most common. Magnigication powers vary, ranging from 1.5 to 20X, and some have smaller, higher powered bifocal inserts.

    Product Description:

    If durability is what you need, the SureGrip Series Hand Held Magnifiers from Carson Optical is what you're looking for. Reasonably priced, these magnifiers are each equipped with a 2x power magnification and a 10x power spot lens (built into the handle) for close up inspection. The SureGrip magnifiers are all ergonomically designed with rubberized handles with built-in finger grooves to rest comfortably in the palm of your hand. Each of these magnifying lenses are securely held in place and protected by a full, heavy duty plastic rim. The SureGrip Series magnifiers are available in four different styles. The SG-10 (3.5 inch) and the SG-16 (3.3 inch x 2.0 inch) both contain glass lenses while the lenses on the SG-12 (4.3 inch lens) and SG-14 (5.0 inch lens) contain acrylic lenses. While the acrylic styles are larger and lighter in weight, the glass lenses are less prone to scratching and allow for a slightly higher light transmission for sharper, clearer images. Glass lenses also tend to magnify a little bit more due to the density of the glass. However, the acrylic styles will cover a wider field of view and are easier to navigate with due to the lighter weight of the lens. The SG-16 style is a little more unique in that it has a rectangular shaped lens which makes it easier on the eyes for reading. The SG-16 also contains fold out, sturdy legs that allows the magnifier to stand up on its own for hand-held or hands-free usage. A soft padded, zippered case is included with every magnifier to protect the lenses from scratching and dust. The SureGrip Series magnifiers are perfect for everything from reading, crafts, hobbies, inspection and so much more!
