    I use the Paterson film clips with the two sharp points that poke a hole in the film.. I only use one of the points in the corner and the negative hangs diagonally. I put the clip on right before it goes in the photoflo.

    Just take your film to a Tattoo shop. They also do piercings, and can even fit you with gold teeth while waiting.

    This doesn't answer the question, but I use wooden or bamboo clothes pins.

    Well that Fiskars one did punch a hole, plus gouge emulsion pretty good. Flipped it over and gouged film base pretty good. There is a sharp metal tongue that really digs deep.

    I haven't used mine yet as I still have 3 holders with Acros to shoot. However I tested the punch on a developed negative that the bellows got in the way of and it appeared to be fine. No scratches only that I had the tendency to punch a tad closer to the edge than Fuji but my aim should improve with use.

    A bulldog clip and a piece of wire to make a hanger, that's all I use. A heavy duty bulldog clip with a piece of wire around one of the handles to make a hook, then it just hooks over your drying line.

    I use very small brass safety pins to hang my 8x10 film attached right after the final wash.
    Hook easily to a paper clip from my film hanging shelf.
    Hardly leave a trace.
