These clips do not hold 190 pages! More like 120...
on 3 December 2016
In a few words, these clips do not have capacity for 190 pages, not even close! Unless you're trying to hold together newspaper, or possibly counting both sides of a single page as 2 sheets...
For the purposes of my test, I was using normal 80g/sm computer printer paper and when trying these clips out, I found that I was able to get 120 sheets into this clip at a squeeze, but increasing this to 130 pages was just too much for the clip (short of resorting to a crowbar to force it open).
Having said that, they are extremely strong and easy to use, as the clips don't require that much effort to open them fully. This is partly due to the largeness of the clip itself, which coincidentally, I do happen to think might be a bit bigger than it needs to be (with the dimensions being 60mm x 60mm, as the product description would suggest).
Overall, they are very good clips and had they been marketed as being suitable for a more appropriate number of pages of standard thickness, I would have had no hesitation in recommending them. However, whilst they might hold 190 pages of newspaper, you will definitely need to consider whether they are suitable for your own particular purpose (even the 70mm clips, the largest in the range, won't hold 190 pages).
