There's no lanyard

Yes you're trying to discover what type of clip this is.

FYI Owain, if you post a picture of one it'll be deemed that you've provided the answer, so you'd have to host the next quiz.
:twisted:

That would be awkward as I don't own a macro lens. I have no idea why I am here. I think it has something to do with Clippy.

It is a clip that holds or retains paper. That seems established. Is it mainly used to hold typing paper sized paper?

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

An actual macro is not required. A close crop of a closeup will do.

I know Ed has even posted a crop from a dreaded iPhone device. Whatever you have will be fine.

I don't know why I'm here either. Sometimes I envy religious people who have a book with it in. But that seems recursive.


You don't need a macro lens. I usually use my phone. The pictures are usually pretty lousy crops!

"IS" is a contentious word :-P
remember it may need qualification, such as .. sometimes, may,can be, could, often, occasionally, only, only ever, mostly, might .....

The size doesn't matter, but "often" typing sized, would be true.

Just wanting to make sure it did not hold "money" sized paper without asking if it was a money clip.
:-D

You could, but there's no such specific purpose.

It isnt just a super exotic paper clip is it ?... sorry for the down-time, 10 hour flight

And an added question .. is it spring-loaded?

Well then, I might as well get involved.

It can't be one of those. See the question below that was answered "No."

Nogo wrote in post #18514253 (external link)
Is it designed for photographic use? Lighting equipment, etc?

Those binder clips were used in almost every darkroom at one time or another. They were used to hold up film (and prints by some users) in the darkroom so they could dry.
