Makes framing your art easy!
from North Carolina
Comments about OOK Metal Offset Clips:
I'm a very inexperienced framer. My canvases are about 5/8" thick but most frames have a 3/8" rabbit. So there's about a 1/4" offset where the canvas sticks out of the back--it's not quite level with the frame. Using the OOK metal offset clips, the 1/4" difference is very easily accounted for. I had earlier tried offset clips from my local hobby store--and they were a disaster. But the OOK clips were dead easy to use, hold the canvas securely, and provide a professional look to the picture. It took me about 30 minutes total to go from unframed canvas to professionally framed art. In fact the hardest part about framing was gluing on the brown paper backing to protect the artwork from dust, etc.! If you want to try framing yourself, take a look at Blick's gorgeous frames and get these clips in the appropriate size to deal with any offset issues.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Framing can get downright expensive, so I frame my work at home. These offset clips are perfect for mounting paintings done on stretched canvas. They are strong and mount easily.
An absolute necessity!
By A the artist
Convenient and easy to use. Should be sold in bulk so less packaging.

These offset clips come in packages of 8 clips and are supposed to have 16 screws to attach one end to frame and the other to the canvas. However, some packages only included 12 screws and one had only eight. Thank goodness I have spare screws on hand otherwise if I were doing a plein air competition where you have to frame your work on the spot... I'd be screwed... pardon the pun.
These are a must have item for framing

These clips are necessary for framing and I was delighted to find them here. The offset comes in various sizes and I probably will be getting more of them in the future.

Not enough screws.
I have purchased 2 of these thinking the first set I got was in error but, nope! You need 2 screws for each off set piece however, only 1 screw is sent so be certain you have extras!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for your feedback! Although it is possible to use an additional screw with each clip, that is optional. With stretched canvases, many users prefer to screw into the frame only, and have the canvas held by the overlapping clip without the additional screw. However, we do want to make sure you're happy with your purchase. If you would like to return these, just call our Customer Care Center at 1-800-723-2787 for assistance.
Well-made & strong
from Western North Carolina
I have used this product to hold panels in a pie cabinet after the original plastic braces broke apart from opening and closing the doors so often. Good product and reasonably priced.
Solid material; well-shaped. Hold well in the frames.
Exactly What I Needed !
By Tom from Florida

I ordered 1/8" offset clips used to hold my canvas paintings in the frame. They were exactly what I needed. The pricing was more than fair, and shipping was prompt. I will continue to use Dickblick for all my art needs.
What a time saver.

I love this product. It is so simple to frame all my canvas art.
