5 Uses For A Paper Clip

Paper clips are useful for keeping paper together; they can be quite useful in various ways. Here are five alternative uses for a paper clip.

 1. Hanging Ornaments

Running out of ornament hooks is one of the most inconvenient things in the world. Paper clips can come to the rescue in a hurry! For a no-fail DIY option, thread one end of a paper clip through the ornament loop and hang the other end on your tree.

 2. Make a Mini Pump to Inflate Things

Tie a knot in one end of the string, attach it to the paperclip, and pull tight and put around the valve stem. Place the other end of the string over another part of itself, like an X, and make a knot on top to keep it from slipping.

 3. Use as a Spoke Wrench

A common problem with bikes is that the spokes become loose and rub against the brakes after a certain point, which creates a lot of unnecessary noise. You can fix this by wrapping a paperclip around the spoke where it comes into contact with the brake pad.

 4. Removing Stubborn Earrings

Take a paperclip and straighten it out completely. Bend the wire into a U shape with two ends that are even. You can then use these "tweezers" to remove earrings from the ears by hooking them onto the steep part of the earring back and then pulling.

 5. Organize Cables and Wires

Clip your cables together with a paperclip to keep them from getting tangled up when you're not using them, like when they're in storage. You can also attach them to a nail on the wall and keep your desk looking tidy.
