    I do some hand work but they are cut for me. However I thik it would be cool to spread a rumour that I cut them out with a coping saw and file each one down. Actually that is how I made the prototypes. And the springs are made by a spring company. I tried to bend springs for my prototypes and they look horrible.

    The birth of the Alexander Clip! I own the Dutch clip and biner--and would imitate the design without compunction for my own use. That's the spirit of DIY.
