With this simple device you can reach into tiny spaces and pick up lost objects. You can remove toast from a toaster and not get burned. The sheer number of uses for this magical creation is endless. If for some reason you lose one, there is always another nearby. The parts are interchangeable. I think maybe the clothespin might give duct tape a run for the money. Am I wrong? Doesn't matter, right now it is holding my wife's little teacup side together while the superglue dries after I dropped it. Looks like new and she will never notice. Thank you clothespin.
