Magnetic Clips

ASSIGNMENT: Magnetic Clips in Stainless Steel

CHALLENGE: Creating small inexpensive clips to coordinate with an increasing array of stainless steel kitchen accessories.

SOLUTION: After a sketching a variety of clip design formats and estimating their associated production costs, the leaf spring emerged as the best option based on function, price, and a review of the production resources. Leaf clips are those with two halves joined by a hinge with a spring in-between. We formed two symmetrical sides out of stamped stainless steel and introduced, into the area users would touch, a pad of a soft rubber material. on the other end where the clip would need to grip items we also added strips of soft rubber strips to enable a secure grip. each of these ends were formed to maximize the function of the clip, good finger grip on one end and secure grip for objects on the other. in between was formed the simplest transition possible to tie the ends together.
