The tool opens to reveal a selection of symbol and phrase magnets on one half and a blank magnetic board on the other. The blank side has an easel backing, and would be separated from the other half and used as a backdrop for appropriate symbols and phrases to communicate messages and conditions between the salesmen. The magnets all have a place over their corresponding black and white image on the left side of the tool. The tool also comes with June 1948 "The Otis Bulletin" magazine, along with three copies of the photograph on its front cover, and an Otis measurement conversion tables booklet.
