"The History of The Sock Clip - How the Original Sock Clip was Born"
Believe it or not the Original Sock Clip, shaped like tiny little feet, was conceived and developed by a man, who out of frustration of continuously losing his socks and having to spend a ridiculous amount of time sorting and pairing his socks decided there just had to be a better way. He searched around for a product that might solve the problem in the only way he could imagine which was to keep each pair of socks together at all times, unless of course you were wearing them. After searching and searching and trying some of the completely ineffective products that claim that they would in fact hold two socks together, which of course simply did not work, some of which are still around to this day, and guess what, still do not work, he decided that he would develop a clip that would not only work but one that would be designed so well that it would last for years and years.
The designer was told by professionals in the plastics molding industry that it would be impossible to make an all plastic clip that would actually hold two socks together throughout the laundry process withstanding the agitation of the washing machine and the tumbling and heat of the dryer. Believing that "if you can conceive it, you can achieve it" the inventor only found these discouraging words to be his motivating words and set out to develop just such a product as he imagined. It took several years, yes years, of trial and error in both the design and the choice of particular materials used but alas the "Original Amazing Always Together Sock Clip" was born, for short simply called the Sock Clip. It was decided that the Sock Clip would be made in the United States and thus the process began...
The next step was to decide where to make the product. The search was on to find a qualified molder who he felt would be able to make the product with the same integrity and attention to detail as the designer of the product felt would be necessary for his product to ultimately be successful as a quality product that consumers would really use and like. While searching for a molder the inventor was introduced to an association that provided work for developmentally disabled. Having gone to a camp as a child that shared the camp grounds property with another camp that was for the developmentally disabled there was a soft spot in the inventors heart toward this segment of our society. After investigating this association he decided that after the plastic parts were molded, by whatever molder he would eventually find, that they would then be sent to the facility where the disabled worked to be assembled and packaged. The assembly of the product proved to be very easy to assemble thus a perfect product for people with most any level of developmental handicap. A molder was soon found and then together with the association of disabled our workforce was in place to start making the Original Sock Clip. The very same Sock Clip has been made ever since with no changes other than the occasional additional color variation. We are proud to be making the Sock Clip in the United States and even more proud to continue to provide work for the disabled.It was decided that the Sock Clip would be made in a variety of colors and then since the average family had about four people that they would be marketed in four assorted colors allowing for a different color for each member of the family. This way not only would you never have to sort socks to figure out which sock goes with which but you would instantly know whose socks are whose. Dad could get one color, mom another, the third for child, etc.
The Original Sock Clip proved to work perfectly during each and every test that they were given including being opened and closed thousands of times, put through laundry test cycles thousand of times and even boiled in bleach. Seemly nothing within the realm of what they were designed for could harm these clips. Besides being able to go in the washer and dryer incorporated into the design was the ability for them to be able to attach easily to any metal or plastic hanger further increasing the versatility of the clip as they could turn any simple hanger into an instant pant or skirt hanger or attach numerous clips to a hanger and you would have an instant stocking or sock holder for easily drying items that you might normally be tossing over the shower curtain rod. This hook conveniently fits and hangs on a clothesline as well. The Original Sock Clip is the most useful laundry accessory you will ever use. Organizing your Socks has never been easier! The Original Sock Clip makes the perfect gift!
As time went on the makers of the Original Sock Clip received a call from a customer expressing how much they loved the product and throughout the conversation the customer mentioned that the Sock Clip, within their household, had proven to be much more than a Sock Clip, that it was also an excellent bag or chip clip. Being that it was so durable, opened up so wide yet closed so tightly and that it was also made up entirely of plastic it was completely dishwasher safe. Even safe when used in the freezer to hold bags of frozen vegetables and such tightly closed helping to keep out freezer burn, and with chips keeping the bag so tightly closed that it could even help keep things like chips and cereal fresher longer. The company took these suggestions of the customer to heart and commenced testing of the Sock Clip as also being a useful bag or chip clip. They tested and tested so as to be sure that any claims or suggestions they might make or would be honest ones and just like the customer suggested the Sock Clip did in fact prove to be an excellent bag or chip clip actually working much better than any other clip the company would find during their testing. Future packages of the Original Sock Clip went on to include a small part on their instructions showing the versatility of the clip as a multi purpose clip that would not only solve the lost sock or sorting sock problem but would have many other uses throughout the consumers household.
Originally sold in small packages of four clips and six clips, after sending out one press release and receiving two newspaper articles and a television news spot, both of which wound up being nationally syndicated, combined with the realization that any customer would in fact have the need for many more clips than four or six, the decision was made to change packaging quantity to a package of 32 Sock Clips, eight each of four colors which is how they are still sold today.
