Slide Clips (A Product Review)
Some of you folks may remember this post: mind.Depositor: template and leather jacket sharing. The jacket described used these neat sliding clamp/clips - pictured here and here. If you look at the thread, you will see I asked about the clips and then answered my own question, having discovered Levenger's Clippies . Wandering thru this person's blog, I found a link to a Flickr set showing construction detail: mind.Depositor - how to create a cover for your GTD/Hipster PDA index cards
Now then, a few days ago, I was surfing and stumbled across Slide-Clips.com. The site does not yet have its online store plugged in, so I followed the links and eventually made a phone call that put me in touch with a very kind gentleman named Peter who just joined the site (at my suggestion) with a username of "Slide-Clips".
I mentioned Levenger's Clippies and Peter tells me that Slide Clips are not exactly the same. Levenger's are made in China, Slide Clips in Japan. So I placed an order with him that arrived yesterday.
Here's what I ordered: This is a small pack of mall plastic clips, a small pack of large plastic clips, a pack of XL metal clips, and one pack each of two sizes of magnetic clips.
Here are the prices Peter quoted me:
|Small Plastic Clips (10 pack)||$2.19|
|Small Plastic Clips (30 pack)||$4.99|
|Small Plastic Clips (100 pack)||$14.79|
|Largel Plastic Clips (5 pack)||$1.99|
|Largel Plastic Clips (10 pack)||$3.49|
|Largel Plastic Clips (20 pack)||$6.49|
|Small Metal Clips (30 pack)||$4.98|
|Large Metal Clips (20 pack)||$6.69|
|XL Metal Clips (10 pack)||$6.09|
|Small Magnetic Clips (10 pack)||$6.59|
|Large Magnetic Clips (4 pack)||$9.89|
While Levenger Clippies come in a tin with 12 large and 24 small for $16 (currently on sale for $14)
I like these. I think you will, too. You can phone or e-mail Slide-Clips until thy get their web site finished.
