What's the difference between Clipa2 and the Original Clipas?
Clipa2 is an updated Clipa. Its 25% lighter, has a slimmer profile and a smaller outside diameter. Clipa2 opens wider (2.8” vs 2.5”) and has the same inside diameter (2.25”) as the original. The rated weight capacity has been reduced to 33 lbs from 45 lbs which is still way beyond what most people will ever carry. The weight capacity safety factor has also been increased from 2X (original) to 3X (Clipa2). Clipa2 has a smooth, polished finish and are shipped in a gift box with a clear sleeve. Hematite is now coated with titanium PVD (see below)- a big improvement over the original. We have also replaced the brushed finishes with matte, another nice upgrade. The closing action on Clipa2 is very strong and with the lighter weight, stays even more securely on bag straps. Clipa2 was designed in California and is made in a high quality factory in China where specifications are strictly controlled. Clipa2 is the best bag hanger we have ever offered and is backed by a manufacturer's warranty and satisfaction guarantee.

Does Clipa work on both double handle and single strap bags?
Yes.

My handbag straps are very long. Will it work?
If your bag straps are very long, Clipa may not suspend your bag off of the ground. If it has “D” or “O” fittings where the straps connect to the body, you can loop the Clipa through both rings and hang your bag.

Will Clipa keep my handbag from being stolen?
No. Keep your handbag close with a Clipa purse hanger and keep an eye on it. Clipa is not a theft deterrent.

How do I use Clipa on my car's passenger seat headrest?
Lift the headrest up until the post is visible and attach.

Will it break?
It has been tested on machines and in the field comparable to 10 years of daily use 3–4 times a day (125,000 cycles). To accommodate friction when in use, each Clipa has some side to side tolerance built in. The force required to break the Clipa handbag hanger is multiples of the rated strength.

What is your guarantee?
We back every Clipa with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you´re unhappy with a product, simply return it within 30 days of purchase for a refund, less shipping costs. Depending on your credit card company, please allow 1-2 billing cycles for a refund to show up on your billing statement. For more information, please see our warranty.

What is it made of?
A high strength alloy. All Clipas are triple plated. They won't tarnish, rust or corrode and never need polishing. Gold and hematite models have an additional coating called Physical Vapor Deposition or PVD. A special process embeds zirconium (gold) or titanium (hematite) molecules into the surface, creating an extremely durable coating known as the “Forever Finish.”

Where is Clipa made?
Clipa was designed in California and is made exclusively for Topcor in China.
