    Sustainability and Product Care

    Product Care Information

    The Williams Hillmaster Compass likes its personal space. Keep it away from magnets or electronic devices and don’t store it touching another compass. This could leave the Hillmaster feeling a little lost - it may tamper with the needle direction. If the compass polarises (points south instead of north), drag a magnet along the base of the compass from south to north to correct the needle.
