Tired of chip clips that require more than 0 seconds of effort to stick onto a bag? Me too!

I drew this up while configuring my new SeeMeCNC Orion printer. Print the sucker out and keep your chips / crisps fresh!


This object is meant to flex a bit, so use at least 10% infill. It's not supposed to win any beauty contests so I did my at .35mm layer height.

I printed this w/ PLA and found that overall this chip doesn't seem to have enough tension to hold smaller bags closed.

I can see for something like a bag of chips where it requires minimal force spread over a larger area to keep it closed this would be great, but beyond this it's utility drops off.

Nice, I like the design. I have only tried a simple clip, but I'd like to try this next.

Made a few tonight out of pla and they work very well! Love your show as well. Watch every episode. It helped get me into 3d printing

I printed this in White ABS and it works great. Great design, it's nice and flexible.
