Spring Clip

The idea for this clip came about when a customer wanted a clip more reminiscient of the old Conklin spring clips, rather than my traditional wrap-around snake.

I designed this as a spring clip, but also shaped it with the ripple of the hard rubber material in mind so that the shape of the clip is an extension of the ripples.

The result is somewhat different from the old Z-bar and similar clips since the pen cap does not use a separate inner cap. So the clip needed to be attached differently. This one uses a screw and nut arrangement.
