The Magnet is an item that can be found in Silent Hill. It is located on a table in the office/lounge area of Norman's Motel, and is one of the items Harry Mason must obtain to complete the Kaufmann Sidequest. Harry uses the magnet to reach the key beneath the floorboards of Room No. 3, presumed to be Michael Kaufmann's room. The small string on the magnet indicates it was previously used for something similar, if not the same purpose. The key the magnet retrieves is for the motorcycle in the motel garage, and using it triggers the cutscene that completes the sidequest.
