It's been long enough now that it's getting hard (for me at least) to find Alice Clips. At one time in my life I could always find one or more in a junk drawer . . . Aw, but I digress.
It's not uncommon for me to want to attach something to something else and Alice clips often fit the bill. I purchased this set so that I'd have some around. I've used them for many many things betides attaching items to my belt, but that is what they are made for and maybe what they do best.
Do yourself a favor. Buy a set. Teach you kids some gear history and show them how they work and, if nothing else, throw a couple in you bag, just in case you need to attach something!
Easy to use & well made. Received them extremely quick.
