If you love it and it make's your day oh so great, snap a pic and "I made one" ;)

Should fit most spool's. If not, it only takes a few minutes to print and try :P I use a ton of these myself.

I'm not opposed to a tip as well! ;)


The "Fila-Clip" is the MAIN one I use myself. It's a bit smaller, still hold's great, and has a nice tight latch on the spool. These are the Blue one's in the picture.

The "Fila-clip-Longer" version might work with 3mm filament. I don't use it myself, but I will upload it in case someone want's to give it a shot. It also has a little wider clip, if needed. These are the red one's in the picture.

These are some of the best clips I have printed for my spools. They are versatile to different spindles and they hold the filament well!

Cool clip, just made one since only have one spool ... yet!

I've printed a few with 20ù infill the first time.
That was not strong enough.
Redone it with 40% infill and they worked just perfect.
Thanks, bro!

This is for 1.75mm, correct?

Correct. I've printed a few of the short version, but I'd suggest using the longer one. Otherwise the filament tends to slip into the last "hole" which is just meant to support the flexibility (I think) and then it is too loose.

What a great idea!!!!!

Thank you, share a pic if you make some up ;)

Tried four other clips and they didn't work as well as this one.

Great clip, works well with a solid click and holds filament tight.


Thanks, glad to hear that. I haven't had to use these much lately since Hatchbox finally stepped up their game and put holes on all sides of the spool for the filament to be slid through for storing, but I still do for some other random brands I have.

Works great! Thank you!

Finally a clip that works! Thanks!

Yep :P thanks. Don't forget to 'make' one ;)

Well done! This was the second thing I made after the Ultimaker Robot. Very functional! :-D

works perfectly the teeth are awesome definitely a need more than a want or just for fun print. Great job!

Thank's they really do work great :P I have an army of them
