What are they?

At the risk of exposing my ignorance of the ways of this world, after 4 months I still have no idea what these things are that came with my new trailer. What are they?

Clips for your potato chip bags to keep them fresh.
No Foolin

Another forum I frequent often shows some oddball cast iron tool from about 120 years ago. The first ten answers to “what is this” are answered as “a pig castrator.” Could be worse.

chip clips!
I suspected as much but I'm not a chip eater (or buyer) so what do I know.

I also had no idea what those things were until I saw some in a store recently. I would have never guessed their function.

they work fine on bread bags (i don't like the twisty things OR the tiddly wink with a hole in it) or bags of frozen fruit or cereal as you use. not just for chips anymore.

I will give you this, Hawkins Cheezies are about 100 times better tasting than the USA made “equivalent”.

If I can't find the "Snack" size bags of Cheezies ( spelled with a Zed, not a Zee ) I'll use the chip clip to keep the rest of a larger bag fresh and crisp.

This is one reason I purchased NEW, you get a free pair of chip clips.

I wonder what else comes with the trailer. I never got chip clips with the Fleetwood.
