    of the 10-12 that came with my maxx when i bought it two weeks ago, only 1 is left... i had to borrow 3 from a friend.. i lost of of those, and bent the !@#$ out of another.. now i'm using two nicer ones up front.. a really bent one in the back along with a peice of 14 gauge copper.. hehe i have 12 body clips in the mail.. they are going to be tied to the body somehow....

    Zip Tie

    I just zip tie my body clips on, like on the end prong things, works really good for me

    Exactly, it works really good, amnd when ya want to take your clips off squeeze the two end together and pull the zip tie off and to the same to put it back on, but make sure its kinda a tight fit

    Whenever I take off my body I turn it over and place the body clips in it. I have yet to lose one.

    I was useing rubberbands like you use for people with braces.I put them on the open end of clip. Now I have fishing line tied to the round end of the clip and I put a tiny hole in the lexan. I tied a couple knots on the inside of the body and havn't lost a clip in a long time....

    I'll have to check around, but the clips that hold my seat on my quad are round with a pin on them. You slide the pin in then flip over the round part. I wonder if they make something like that only alot smaller to fit posts.

    Talking

    is anyone here into cars?????

    then if you are you'll understand the race cars thwt have the clips (FULL SCALE CARS)they have a wire attatching clip to the grill or somthin. So just take a flex wire or (SMALL) zip tie and attatch clip ti mounts or bumper or whatever.

    my tip is for when your cleaning the car, tuning, and stuff like that. Not when your riding.

    i used the tip my old lhs owner gave me the fising line to the body...it worked till it got me mad and i ripped the line off lol but i think the colored zip tie on the circle end would work pretty good

    I keep my spare clips on a Key ring. Just slap the clips on the ring and stick it in my nitro box.

    we can start a new religion and make a rosary out of body clips
    (if this is, i dont mean it to be offensive)

    but i think a good idea would be to just get something that you wear and tie the clips to yourself lol. when my maxx gets here ill probably wear a hawaiian neclace thingy and just stick clips on that. or you could put the clips on your shoelaces, wouldnt lose them there, the squishy tongue of the shoe would keep them secure.

    i like the keychain ring idea.
