The Paperclip Angle

I am one of those who have suffered many a chipped nails and nail polish thanks to the existing design of the paperclip. Men, you can mock as much as you want, but I am sure the women-force will want you to embrace the 45-degree angle-induced paperclip redesign called the ‘Clip-Up’. Simple solution to a very common problem!

Designer: Juhyun Lee

    Difficult to put one bundle of clipped papers on top of another otherwise very nice.

  • Pete says:

    Designer knows that this kind of paperclip already exists ? 😀

  • It’s very nice, but as perfection is not a human attribute, Kompani has pointed out a drawback in this clip, in the above comments. It will be really difficult to place one clipped document on other clipped documents, or if somehow become possible, then it will take a lot of space.

  • Product tank says:

    This will be more expensive to manufacture
    The arm that grips is more likely to deform
    The clip is less likely to grip and will more easily spring off when flicking through pages because of the shortness of the gripping arm and its lack of flexibility.
    The upstanding to make it easier to put on to papers makes it easier to push off papers when they are being shuffled.
    The additional grip area means papers won’t fit in many standard filing boxes.
    The design will fail on many levels. If the designer made a prototype before jumping straight into a pretty rendering, a lot of these problems would be identified and hopefully resolved before getting to this stage.

    Wow. This really is a good idea.
    This is really clever concept.:)

    Very nice !!!

    I will call the existing clip design as very women friendly.
    There is nothing wrong with the decades old design, though it definitely has a good scope of improvisation.
    The existing paper clip is designed keeping in mind that all age group and genders should be able to use it without applying extra amount of force and chipping nails. This is the very reason why an extension exists on a paper clip.

    Plus, it is very easy to manufacture and there is no need to dispose it ever. It also saves you if hand-cuffed or in lock-picking 🙂
