Abstract

Disclosed is a fastening clip for retaining the end portion of a web, such as film, upon a reel0 As shown in Figures 1 and 2 the fastening clip 17 includes a substantially flat center portion 18 and two gripping arms 19 that extend from each end of the center portion0 In order that the fasten- ing clip frictionally engage with either the edges of the film that is wound upon the reel, the inner surfaces of the radially extending flanges on a reel, or both, it is neces- sary that at least one surface of the four inner and outer surfaces on arms 19 contain a plurality of serrations 20~

gripping means extending towards the hub 28~ In this manner
the serrations on either or both of inner surfaces of extend-
ing arms 29 would fasten onto the edge portions of film 26,
A further fastening effect is achieved by the frictional
engagement between the serrations on the outer surfaces of
arms 29 and the inner surfaces of radial flanges 30, When a
reel contains a small amount of film wound thereon, it is
more practical to insert clip 27 in the reverse direction,
