Mohr clip (also called Mohr's clip, Mohr tubing clamp, Mohr pinchcock clamp or pinch clamp) is a compression spring clamp with rounded edges designed to control the flow of gasses or liquids through flexible tubes.

General

Mohr clips consist of an approximate α-shaped metallic item, with two flat heads on each of the item's arms. A loop is present at the other end of the item, through which a hose/tubing is fitted through. Mohr clips are often made of nickel-plated brass or steel, while stainless steel is less often encountered.
