We are launched this campaign "final Push"!!

When you buy each 1 claim, we put 1 pack for free! 

"Paper clips" -they just silp off while turning pages!

How irritating!!!

I'm sure you have had the same experience.

This Ripple CLIP, created in Japan,  solves the problem.

Note: "Ripple CLIP of silver color" is already on available.  

This crowd-funding is for the first introduction of "New color Ripple CLIP, Red and blue"!



We have already launched this clip in Japan so we have many user's voices.

This is the first time to fly to the world!  



This is a breakthrough innovation for paper clips in 130 years.

The most used paper clips were invented in 1890.

At the time and even now, it must have been an awesome and everlasting invention.

Usability and production cost has been remarkably completed, and there seems to be no rooms for innovation as well.

But the one and only inconvenience is when it slips off while turning pages.

Ripple CLIP has challenged with this innovation for the last 130 years.

We have pursued to innovate the clips:

- Free from "slipping off stress"

- Silver-ratio (1:√2)based beautiful ripple shape.

- Customer survey from about 5,000 people. : We went through many try and error process.

- Not for a single use.

- affordable price.

Although we are not an expert of mechanisms, we tested numbers of shapes with wires and pliers,

and with many cooperation from the manufacturing company,

Finally Ripple CLIP was born.



The size of Ripple CLIP is the same as the usual paper clip.

The mechanism of this paper clip is the prediction of space while flipping(the yellow and orange part as seen on the image).

We designed it to secure the yellow right triangle and the orange trapezoid.

And so the best size was the same as the well-known paper clip. 

The traditional paper clip slips and comes off.

To solve this problem, we designed the ripple shape.

The Ripple CLIP has structural dynamic characteristics.

The two lines of the doubled and tripled wires intersect at a point and it reverses.

This special shape gives the grip to the angle of 90 degrees of paper, and prevents it from slipping off.

The Mobius-strip-like-shape makes Ripple CLIP grippy.

Metalic red and Metalic blue are the new interference colors we selected carefully.

These two colors had advantage over silver in a questionnaire answered in Japan.

These one-of-a-kind colors are made by careful chemical processing in japan, not by painting.

Please experience the convenience as much as possible!

Let's create the "value in use" by using the unique in function and in design "Ripple CLIP" in various scenes!


Bind it to your notebook, use it as a bookmarker,

or to secure sugar and seasoning,

use it as a message card or as a drawing lot,

how about using it as an item for Instagram photos?

Includes  5 clips

clip size approx.  33mm×10mm

If we reach 300,000 JPY or more support, we will attach one clip per pack to all backers.

Example: 1 pack purchase (usually 5 pieces) → to 6 pieces + 5 more pieces (final push)

10 pack purchase (usually 50 pieces) → to 60 pieces + 50 more pieces (final push)





This project is for overseas operation and Ripple CLIP has been already sold in Japan.

Therefore, the product is already manufactured in the factory, which means that there will be no delivery delays.

I'm Hirotoshi Ishida. Cilps slip off when turning pages, and binder clips are so bulky!  I used to suffer from these inconveniences. 

So I made an innovation to make a clip that "will not come off ".

I'm a chemical company worker and not an expert of mechanisms.

But with cooperation from many people and companies, I was able to launch this new product. The Ripple CLIP.

I hope you enjoy my creation.
