Abstract[edit]

  1. Easy to print and cost effective umbilical cord clip. This clip can easily be printed and used for a new born baby. Most clips use a latch to keep shut, by realizing that you can slide an umbilical cord down the channels of my clip you can firmly clip a cord.

Considerations[edit]

  • Umbilical cords have no nerve endings so a slight pinching from the channels on the cord will not cause discomfort.
  • The cords take 1 to 2 weeks to fall off, once off the clip can be easily removed.

Technical Specifications and Assembly Instructions[edit]

Simply slip the clip onto the umbilical cord until it it crimped in between the jaws.
