RIPPLE CLIP / Paperclip

The standard paperclip was invented around 1890. Its clever and simple design has since made it ubiquitous in every office and school. Its one design flaw is that it tends to slip off while turning pages. Ripple CLIP has tripled the clip, ensuring a tighter and more stable grip. To use it, fold the corners of the sheaf of paper and insert the middle bend of the clip into the valley. This technique means that the top and bottom bends keep a much tighter grip on the paper.
