Inventor and InventHelp Client Develops Paper-Clip Alternative (SLC-1045)

Share Article

InventHelp, a Pittsburgh-based invention submission company, is working to submit this idea, the Button Clamp, to companies in the hopes of a good faith review.

Paper clips are great for holding together a few sheets of paper, but when so many papers are put together that they form a stack, a paper clip is no longer viable. It's times like these that you need the BUTTON CLAMP.

Developed by an inventor from St. Louis, Mo., the accessory secures thick stacks of paper. It prevents papers from becoming disorganized.

The device is ideal for use with stacks of paper that are too thick to be held together with a standard paper clip. The invention keeps the desk area neat and tidy, which enhances convenience in offices, schools, homes and elsewhere.

Simple, easy to use and less cumbersome than other types of clamps. It can be engraved, monogrammed or color-coded to easily identify the originating source. Additionally, it is producible in different sizes, colors and designs.

The inventor's personal experience provided the inspiration for the idea. "I needed a more convenient way to keep thick stacks of paper together," he said. "Normal paper clips cannot handle the job, so I came up with this alternative."

The original design was submitted to the Salt Lake City office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
