I get requests often for the details and where to buy the clips. I had found clips from the Ackfeld Wire Co. One disadvantage was that the clips had tiny teeth, which caused me some concern, especially with vintage quilts, so I inquired and found that Ackfeld also carries clips without teeth, though they are not listed in their catalog. I ordered some for comparison.
The original clips with teeth are shown on the left. As you can see, the new toothless clips on the right, have a different look and are longer.
NEW CLIP (85 cents each)
ORIGINAL CLIP (75 cents each)
I like the size of the original clip, but the lack of teeth on the newer clip. You can decide what you like better. Does anyone have ideas for other easy ways to hang small quilts from rulers like this?
