I was rummaging through my desk this morning and in the back of my mind was the need to think about getting some clips to retain the glass on my cocktail cabinet.

Saw some of these in my drawer.

So I grabbed some 50mm ones and tried them on some chipboard.

I'm thinking they might just do the trick. Put a little padding between the metal and the glass, and the fact that they are black, and the chrome handles are removable means they will blend right in!

The only question would be the drillability of the spring steel for a retaining screw for the underneath.

I'm sure most offices would have some in the stationary cupboard!

I'm certainly going to give them a go.

What do you guys think :?:

I think that's a bloody awesome idea!

Hmm, I smell a raid on the office stationery cupboard!

And for padding an old mouse mat cut to size would be perfect I think.

Yep...a little square of that adhesive foam they use for weather stripping, or some of the stuff used to stick to the bottom of furniture so it does'nt scratch floor should be the go. (in black or grey)

^^^^or some mouse mat as per Big's suggestion.

More Macgyver-ing. :lol:

Just look around you, you see a few paper clips, a mouse pad and voila before you know it you have new glass holding clips.
Love it. :lol:

Ok! The news is, the clips drill easily. :)

Clips over the glass and wood securely and sits nice and square.

These are going to do it for me.
