Review : DAISO Air Kaku bulldog clips

 Do you use bulldog clips? It is always useful to have around but the lever can be a little painful to use at times. To alleviate this issue, DAISO has collaborated with Japanese stationery brand PLUS to produce AIR KAKU; clips that open painlessly. 

This product is amongst the BEST 100 : 2018 Good Design award!

The clips can be found in 3 sizes (small, medium and large) and I purchased it in the above configuration: 2 Small and 1 large clip.

As you can tell from the photos, it is indeed a little different from the usual clip. The tip of the lever is straight and not rounded. This increases the contact with the fingers so you can get a better grip. 
The length of the lever is also longer than usual and they have included a groove on the main black body to help shift the fulcrum. All these changes are supposed to help reduce the amount of strength needed to open the clip and hence reduce the amount of pain associated.

So is it really painless?
Yes it is! It is not as obvious with the smaller clips but when you use the big clip you can definitely sense the lower resistance. As a matter of fact, I was able to clip together well over 100 pages of paper effortlessly. 

I highly recommend these clips!
