A Conversation for Paperclips

Another use.

Post 1


I use a paperclip chain to hold one of my keys. No, seriously. You make a fairly long paperclip chain (sixten will normally do it) and attach a safety pin on the end by threading the paperclip through the little hole in the end. Then put the key into the safety pin. The other end can go on a thin caribena (no idea about the spelling) which is then attached to a belt loop. The key end of the chain goes in your pocket.

Advantages: gives you greater reach with your keys whilst still keeping them safe, and can be spun for amusement. Sort of like a low cost version of a Victorian watch chain! plus, you now have a oportable source of paperclips!

Disadvantages: Can catch on drawer handles, and requires a lot of upkeep.

Key: Complain about this post
