    I ran out of film clips

    Had a bit of a back up and at the crucial stage realised..not enough film clips.
    Any one got ideas on DIY clips that they have made?
    Yep, i know i could find them on some auction site, but they will no doubt come with a lot of other stuff [ c---] i don`t need
    regards

    From the local 99c store, I picked up a drying hanger (not quite the same). Also use freezer bag clips from the local supermarket. Both work out a lot cheaper than buying genuine film hanging clips.

    'GregY' beat me to it.

    Standard alligator clips from RS and #210 wire eyelets from the hardware store. Pry the eyelets open just enough to allow your hanging wire inside, then simply screw them into the alligator clips. You can add a drop of solder if you feel it's needed, but I never have.

    These will work for any films, but are especially good for sheet films. The tiny teeth make for a very positive grip and leave only minimal marks. You may need to add extra weight for roll films.

    Bull clips, I think that's what they are called. Office supply store has them.

    I've been using bulldog clips for ages - sooo much cheaper than "photo clips" and work just as well.

    I found some plastic clothespin shaped refrigerator magnets that work well, or small hardware clamps with rubber tips.
