Money clip

Money clip

A money clip is a device typically used to store cash and credit cards in a very compact fashion for those who do not wish to carry a wallet.

Metal

Cash folded in a metal money clip

A metal money clip is generally a solid piece of metal folded into half, such that the bills and credit cards are securely wedged in between the two pieces of metal. Metal money clips are typically made out of stainless steel, silver, gold, titanium, or platinum. They are typically sold as luxury items. The chief disadvantage of a metal money clip is that, due to the inflexibility of the metal, it cannot typically hold large amounts of cash. Depending on the design, it may also be difficult to push the bills into the clip.

Carbon fiber

Although rare, carbon fiber money clips are starting to see market acceptance. Using advanced moulding techniques, the high strength and durability of carbon fiber make for ideal qualities. The carbon fiber allows the clamping surfaces to open beyond parallel, without the deformation of normal metal money clips. Also, being non-metallic they are ‘scanner proof’ which allows the user to pass through metal detectors without having to remove cash and credit cards.

Magnetic

The magnetic money clip is generally made of two strong flat rectangular or round magnets encased in leather, with a small piece of leather separating the two pieces and allowing them to swivel into a closed and open position. There are also clips made of three magnets and two pieces of leather. A magnetic money clip typically has a greater carrying capacity than a metal money clip and the strongest clips are able to hold up to 15 bills folded in half. Magnetic money clips are not recommended for holding credit cards as the magnets may distort or erase the magnetic strip.

Money clip wallet

A money clip wallet is a clip designed specifically to hold both credit cards and cash. The conventional hybrids are a credit card holder with either a swivel magnetic clip attached to the back side or a solid plastic clip. These are sometimes known as hybrid money clips.
