Why are these clips/wheels called Covertec? Is that the real-world manufacturer, the SWU manufacturer, or something else?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Covertec is the company that made the clips used on screen. I think the exact clips are discontinued, but there's still a pretty good supply of them out in the wild. I'm not clear if there are generic "covertec" clips that work just as well, or only the branded ones.

I see. Were they originally cell phone clips?

Covertec is a brand name and what was used in the PT movies. But there are other similar clips out there.

I think they were originally for pagers.
