I snagged these clips on an amazing lightening deal price. I've been cautious with generic of these clips because in the past I've gotten cheap ones. They are thinner plastic than the name brand equivalent, but much sturdier than many other generic brands I have tried. They do seem to keep a strong hold and not slip off when in several thick layers. They are a bit tough to pinch, but I rather that and a snug fit than too loose. The assortment of colors consisted of clear, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink (see photo). My main product is handbags and accessories and these are a perfect alternative to pins.While the tin is nice to store these, my family does not celebrate Valentines Day. For me I don't care so much as it's just a tin, but I know people who this would matter. I wanted to mention that there is a chance of a holiday themed tin.Overall, I'm satisfied customer. My goal was to get some new sturdy clips. My old ones have grown feet and making away and losing their strength (normal with age/use) so now I got some replacements. I would buy again. Even at the regular price.
