Patented rod-and-clamp design makes the bag-closure device very versatile
Ok, so it’s not really a bike thing per se, but check this out: With 6 days left to order in time for Christmas with Prime, Amazon published their annual Stocking Stuffers with a Story feature and it includes an origin story about a household product my company makes, Clip-n-Seal.
We originally designed this to keep coffee and chips fresh at home, but people have found all kinds of other uses for them, including disposal of chemical waste in manufacturing processes, and even to seal testing apparatus in the space program.
Used in making fast, race wheel that I reviewed in our mag.
The application of Clip-n-Seal that most interests me, as a cyclist, is their use in wheel building. During PressCamp earlier this year, I met with Enve Composites and we discussed their latest wheels, and how they use Clip-n-Seal at the factory. I can’t share the specifics, as it’s propriety process, but Clip-n-Seals keep their resins and carbon fibers fresh.

As Amazon shared on their site today, Clip-n-Seals are a stocking stuffer with a story that has many more chapters to write, fresh beans to grind, and wheels to make.
