LP tube clips bring all the advantages of a ring-binder to your lateral files.
File folders take up far less space than ring binders, but without anything to hold your paperwork in place papers can sometimes slide or fall out of folders. By contrast, ring binders hold papers securely but take up a lot of space.
That’s where our LP tube clips come in.
File folders with tube clips give you the best of both worlds. They take up far less space than ring or lever arch binders, but still hold paperwork securely. LP tube clips are comprised of an adhesive base (with two prongs), and two plastic parts (a bar used to hold the pages securely in place, and a U piece which allows pages to be added and removed easily).
Like traditional tube clips, these universal 3-in-1 clips work in much the same way as lever arch file mechanism, holding paperwork in place and allowing easy access without the need to remove the entire contents of the file. However, they differ from traditional tube clips in a number of meaningful ways.
Featuring a unique, low profile design, LP tube clips are made from a stronger plastic than most tube clip fasteners on the market. This results in a more rigid construction, a longer lifespan, and easier handling and use. The rigid bar keeps your papers flat, making sure your files stay thin. This means more files in the same amount of space, allowing for more space-efficient records storage. This slimming effect compounds, so the advantage is greatest for those with extensive filing systems.
