All American made, we are a U.S. metal manufacturer and currently making quality thin nose piece metal strips in 2 sizes. We offer a legitimate quality solution that will help mask makers have better quality masks that actually work and stay on the customer's face.
The breakaway female half on the left has a rounded shape and is missing the two bars inside. The female half on the right is the non-breakaway. The breakaway buckles are slightly slimmer.
Casey's review: I have tried dozens of different nose pieces, and my favorite, by far, are from Revello Metal! They are firm enough to hold shape, but pliable enough to properly conform to the nose. They will not rust or tarnish, and hold comfortably all day!
1/32" x 1/8" x 4" for Large masks
.023" x 1/8" x 4" for Med & Small masks
Casey's review: I have tried and tested 7-10 different clips to find one that met my high quality, safety, and comfort standards. These clips were the winner because they hold together tightly, consistently pulled apart when tested with force, and were easy and comfortable to unclip. The breakaway point is 8-9 pounds which should be sufficient for all ages 2+ in an emergency.

Casey's review: Hancock's of Paducah has been a huge score for me in finding the ever-impossible-to-find solid black Kona Cotton. So far, I have only ordered from them once and it took about 3 weeks to ship, however they keep you up-to-date on their website with the order date they're working on so you can gauge timing, the shipping itself was fast, and the item was well worth the wait! I will, for sure, be ordering from them again! (Bonus: Free shipping over $70!)
Casey's review: This is one of my favorite quilting cotton fabric shops! The quality of their fabrics will not be found in a large commercial retailer... The selection is amazing, the prints are beautiful and vibrant, the prices are competitive, and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable! I feel so lucky to have them located right down the street!
(Psst... out-of-staters: They ship!)
