Introduction: Emergency Cufflinks.

Picture of Emergency Cufflinks.

This is what happened to me the other day. I had my sleeves rolled up. After reaching office I realized it was one of those shirts with cufflink holes and of course I left the cufflinks at home!

Step 1: Step 1 - Get a Clip

Easy fix, all you need is a U-clip! (or a 'paper clip' depending on where you live)

Step 2: Step 2 - Prepare

Fold the sleeve just as you would if you were to wear an actual cufflink.

Step 3: Step 3 - Through One Side

Insert the clip through one side of the sleeve.

Step 4: Final - Through Other Side

Bring both ends close and secure the other side the same way. 

Done! Go ahead and show it off!

Paper Clips are good. I also found that paper fasteners for 3 holed paper work well :)

So you basically can use an ordinary paperclip aswell. I would bend in the tips so it would have some type of resistance.

I had to use these this week away on business..... Worked brilliantly and agree that they look like a minimal cuff link

The square style paperclips look surprisingly good - I think it would be easy to look at these and think they were a minimal cufflink, not office supplies. I'll remember this in case I ever forget mine.

Hey thanks :)

about time you made another one congrates . i may just try that out and give it to my father for his birthday.

Hey thanks! This is an emergency fix. So if you're planning to gift it, then maybe you could decorate it or, personalize it. Better than gifting plain paper clips :D
