PVC softens at 92 Celsius. You could just put the cut rings into boiling water to bring them to temp with zero risk of burning the plastic. The water might even capture some of the chemicals off-gassing from the plastic as it is heated. Double win?
I love this idea! I've used toilet paper rolls in a similar fashion for years. It makes storage and finding what you need SO much simpler.
Update: Clips have been in regular continuous use for more than 3.5 years. We do have temps fluctuating the full range... (Negative 10 to 100+ annually). I have not experienced a single plastic crack nor break. This actually sort of surprised me... The only thing I've needed to do is to tighten a few of the mounting screws. Probably due to the wood shrinkage/expansion....
GOOD IDEA! But I believe you may have more success with larger than 1" rings.
UPDATE: In last 3+ years I have not experienced a single crack nor break among the clips. Our temps in these years have ranged from -17 to +105 approximate - I did not do a thorough research. May have been wider range than this.... As my clips are installed in a non-climate-controlled garage, I believe the temps may not prove to be a big problem...
