Default Crooked Clips - What to do with them?

So every now and then I get a double prong clip out of the box that is crooked - top doesn't line up exactly with the bottom.
Does anybody have a fix for this problem or have a clever idea on how to use the crooked clips that I won't sell? I keep a few around for holding bows and ribbon, etc, but I don't need as many as I'm finding lately.

I keep my crooked ones in a little tupperware with some ribbon scraps so my 2 year old can "help me." HTH

I still use them! If I have a bigger bow, by the time I line it and do my no-slip, you can't even tell it's crooked (I make sure the clip still works fine of course)....or, if it's really crooked (mainly you just see it at the very ends), I cut it off and make a baby clip with it. The ones that are really bad just go directly into the trash, but if it's just the very end that is crooked, I can still use 'em
