The second plastic clip is your failsafe and for sure will save you from losing or dropping your pedometer several times a day. Your can either buy a new Omron pedometer or find a creative alternative clip. I wanted a quick replacement so I opted for creative solutions and enlisted my husband’s help.
My husband, Joe, is a born hunter gatherer. If you send him on a mission, he gets in an infinite loop of possibilities. One request will generate years of purchases and possibilities. Protesting that he can stop doesn’t end his quest. So began his search for the perfect Omron pedometer clip replacement.
Office Supplies Stores
Joe’s first stop was office supply stores. He returned with a huge collection of paper clips. Metal clips, plastic clips, clips with springs, clips with vice like grips. Unfortunately . . . paper clips were made for paper and not Omron pedometers. Save yourself the trip.
Joe’s next trip was to fabric stores. Fabric stores have plastic clips and suspender clips. Actually suspender clips work well but they aren’t very fashionable.
In an enlightened moment, Joe decided to go to a baby store. There he found teddy bear baby diaper pins, Disney clips, Winnie the Pooh binky holders and a motherload of colorful baby gadgets to hold a pedometer in place.
Winnie didn’t have a strong clip so I wouldn’t recommend him and diaper pins poke holes in your clothes. However, any binky clip that looks like suspender holder is a good choice. Plus wearing a pacifier holder will make you laugh.
Binky holders became my favorite Omron pedometer clip replacement. Dump the pacifier (AKA your binky) and attach your pedometer . . . you will be good to go. Big thumbs up.
With my huge selection of Omron clip replacement possibilities, we could have bought a new pedometer but buying a new pedometer wouldn’t have been half as fun as the treasure hunt.
Now if I can just stop Joe from finding even more clip replacements.
