Heng Balance Lamp Has Magnet-embedded Suspending Balls As Switch

At a glance, you may mistaken the Heng Balance Lamp to be a Dyson fan with a couple of balls suspended right smack in the center. Of course, this is not a fan, nor was it from Dyson.

The former clutters your garage and latter is not exactly the not most trusted way do the job. If anything, adjustable wrench runs the risk of rounding the bolt or nut as having a two-sided grip is, like I said, not the most trusted way.
