Finally a clip that actually does the job! Nice work! The best I've tried!

I like the clips, but I have found out that I need to remove them prior to printing. First, they were hitting the spool holder and coming off from time to time, but no big deal. But just now while printing, the filament managed to lock back itself into the clip.

I heard a loud click which I recognized as a feed issue. I found the clip had reattached to the filament, got pulled off the spool, and wedged itself on my printer's cross bar.

Luckily, it only resulted in a little bald spot on an inconsequential part of my print, but it could have been seriously bad if I hadn't been around to fix it. Thought I'd mention it as a warning to people using this clip. I like it and it does a good job securing the filament, but the large profile can cause issues if you leave it on during a print.

I have never heard of anyone leaving a clip on during a print? Just incase anyone else doesn't know to remove the clips before printing, I have added a disclaimer in the part description.

It's probably all due to ignorance on my part. I only had experience with some low-profile clips for Inland rolls, which I hadn't had any issues with leaving on.

It only takes one failed print caused from a spool tangle to make sure you never have anything interfering with your filament again - been there.

I've tried many filament clips over the last few months. Most of them came off too easily. Many was the time I'd take a spool out of its box only to find the clip at the bottom. One design looked promising and held strongly but was a pain to use. But these clips! They actually stay where they're supposed to, hold the filament tightly, are easy to use, AND look fantastic. Tall order for printing exclusively in PLA, but these clips check all the boxes. The only thing I wish that was different is that I had a dual extruder for the cool eye effect, haha. Anyways, just wanted to say thank you and give this design some well-deserved love.

Thank you so much for the kind feedback. I'm glad it is working out well for you! Message me your address and I'll drop some multi-colored ones in the mail for you ;)

really nice filament clip. I tested some and this is the best because it fits at every spool and hold the filament end tight.
