    After doing it practically if you feels that my explanation is not correct then it is my humble request to cancel /deny my both records. Because I want a true record. and then add a rule about the gap (only those clips will be used which has no gap at the end. Thanks




    I have followed all the rules. If any one practically tries this attempt then he will find that as the ends of the clips opens it becomes easy to insert another clip but at the same time chains disconnects more and more due to slipping of these clips through this open end. Under this situation why any one will take a chance of opening the ends without any reason because it is not useful to him. I have followed all the rules.

    These paper clips are all hella altered


    I have not created any bend nor altered any shape of the paper clip. please note that I have used the commercially available paperclips and not prepared them myself. Please also note that in the rules the specification of the gap at the last end of the paperclip is not mentioned any where hence all paperclips can be used. Hence I am the world record holder now. Instead of only commenting if any one will practically break this record then I will congratulate him.

    • may not bend or alter paper clips in advance
