Forget how they work holding reports. These are a must have item in the kitchen for keeping food fresh. I use them for sealing lots of items. I.E Chips, cookie bags, cracker bags, etc. Makes normal every day "Chip Clips" look like wimps.

Look at the photo, not the specs
By Gadget Enthusiast
If the size is very important for you, check the photo of the box first. The description by Amazon lists these as 1-1/4, however the box actually lists 1-1/16.
Even then, really the usable size is closer to just 1".
We needed super large clips at the office, and measured that 1-1/4 would be just perfect, however with the actual usable bit measuring in at 1", we're having some problems making them work.
Granted, they do work great, but the item description was misleading online, and the actual stated capacity is also stretching it a little.
Durability is great as usual, though unusual warping may occur due to the larger size. Harder to open to the full 1" size.

Don't know about "reusable tub"
The tub is made of the clear plastic like those Christmas candy canes filled with dog bones or candy. It does hold the clips but its floppy.
It would have been nice if they listed the size range of the clips. I wouldn't have gotten them if I knew how small they were. (The largest is 1 1/4"L by 1/2"D and the small is 1/2" x 1/4") I needed a couple biggish ones and thought the others would be nice to have on hand. Most of them are small....really small....darling....Barbie doll size almost. However, the "big" one should be adequate for my purposes.
In spite of not loving them, they are pretty well made (in china)and will take care of my modest paper clip needs.
