Found this in a drawer when we purchased our used E21. No idea.

Chip Clip

That, my fellow retired educator, is a chip clip to keep your opened bag of chips sealed up.
Enjoy your retirement!

Had our 4th grandchild born a week ago today. So you can imagine what my last image was regarding the 'thingamajig' / 'whatchamacallit'.

Why would I need to close up an empty bag?

I thought that was an emergency hose clamp for leaks.

Well, because it's not empty,.. because someone walked up with a bag of tortilla chips, & some pico de gallo, and guacamole.

My brother in law had three rules he always followed.
1. Never set a sandwich down once you pick it up
2. No use for a chip clip
3. Throw the whisky bottle cork into the night upon opening.
