Introduction: Cycling Trouser Clips
While cycling wearing trousers there is always the potential hazard of getting the bottoms stuck in the drive gear and chain assembly.
Protect yourself with a pair of 'Cycling Trouser Clips'!
A very simple pair of 'Trouser Clips' can be fashioned from plastic pipe fittings.
What you need:
1. 3 inch (750mm) diameter pipe fitting
Step 1: Marking and Cutting
Mark of an approximately 1/2 inch (12.5 mm) wide strip at the end of the pipe fitting.
I marked out an approximately 3/32 inch (10.0 mm) wide strip initially but felt that it would be too narrow.
Fix the pipe fitting and cut out the marked circular strip with a hacksaw.
Step 2: Deburr
Deburr the cut edge of the circular strip to get a smooth finish.
Step 3: Split and Round-off
Split the circular strip and round-off the split edges.
Step 4: Make Another to Get a Pair
A pair of trouser clips.
Keep them handy!
