    Re: How do you hang your film

    I dry my negatives using alligator clips attached to a standard film clip. The alligator clips have a very small, but strong footprint and can hold the tiniest area of the film surface.Click image for larger version.

    plastic cabinet with shelves removed, and string/wire strung across work great
    clothes pins have never given me trouble

    Re: How do you hang your film

    Tried the clothes pins, alligator and the dental clips. Far to much surface area to deal with since I contact print right to the edge of the film.

    I use a pin register punch to place to small holes in the edge of the sheet film pre development and then use paper clips through the holes that have a side clipped out of them to hang the sheet film from the racks in an closed Arkay dryer. Zero contact with the sheet film since the paper clips hold an inside edge of the 1 mm hole and absolutely zero dust spots.

    Binder clips rust.
    Stainless steel or plastic work. So does dipping the wooden clothes pin holders tips in some liquid latex
    But your clip should not be in the image area anyway
