A straightforward yet useful tool, clipstrips are available in supermarkets all around the world. Products are hung from shelves using these plastic or metal strips with clips at the top, which increases their visibility and accessibility to customers.

Why use clipstrips for your products?

Clipstrips have been around for years and are a firm favourite, but what makes them so popular in supermarkets?

Increased Visibility

Products can be suspended at eye level using clipstrips, which makes them more obvious to customers and is one of their key benefits. For smaller or lesser-known brands that might find it difficult to compete with bigger, more well-known names on crowded shelves, this can be very helpful. Retailers can raise the likelihood that customers will notice and buy these products by hanging them from clipstrips.

Easy to Stock

Clipstrips also make it simple for store members or our field team to reload shelves, which is another advantage. Employees can save time and effort by just hanging the goods from the clipstrip as opposed to painstakingly placing each item on a shelf. This can be particularly helpful during busy times, like the holiday season, when store personnel can be overworked and are in need of prompt restocking.


Flexibility when it comes to displays and layout is key. Clipstrips are simple to move or rearrange, enabling shops to reorganise their shelves and design eye-catching displays in no time. Retailers wishing to showcase specific products or designate themed displays may find this to be extremely helpful.


Clipstrips can be a useful tool for maximising space in smaller businesses or when there is a shortage of shelf space. Retailers may showcase more products without using up valuable shelf space by making use of this vertical space. By making it simpler for customers to identify and buy things, this can help businesses generate more sales and profit.


Last but not least, clipstrips are a reasonably priced choice for retailers wishing to display products. They’re an economical option for smaller businesses or those on a tight budget because they are easy to use and require little setup.
