Clothespin++ / Clip


We often hang dry our clothing on a public clothesline after laundry when living in a co-housing or at dormitory. We share the space with other people and have opportunities to take the wrong clothes from others. Some people would move others’ clothes in order to get more space.
The two sides of Clothespin++ are able to pull nylon rope with clips; one of the clips nip the first hanger and the other one nip the last hanger. We can hang clothes on the line, besides, we can also write our name on Clothespin++. Thus, it’s easier to find their clothes even though it’s a public clothesline, and it can also prevent users to take the wrong clothes.
