I love these. I purchased some on Amazon and started using them a week ago or so. They are great. I bought the assorted pack, but I see I will be using the smaller sizes more than the larger ones so I'll pick up a separate pack of just the smaller clips.

What are they called on Amazon? I’ve had to ask friends to send me some from Taiwan from time to time but I am running low.

They are called gripstic on Amazon also, but I'm sure they shouldn't be as expensive as they are. I can't complain because they work so well.

Thank you, @klepto. And you’re right regarding the pricing. These are about 15 cents each normally.

I wasn’t able to find smaller (8mm, 10, 12mm) Gripstic’s on line, so I ended up asking friends in Taiwan to send them to me with other shipments.

Sorry, I was late on the reply. Yes, I bought the Gripstics. They work nicely, but they are quite costly at $20 a package of 12. I bought the assorted pack because I wasn't sure what size I needed, but I definitely need the small sizes, so I'll probably order one of those. That's $40 for 24 clips. Kind of crazy, but I should be set after the second purchase.
Hmm

You can find non-branded versions on ebay for pretty cheap ($2 or so for a set of 8 of various sizes), although nothing less than 12cm. Just search something like "seal stick storage". Shipping is likely to take a month or two though.
