  1. The ornamental design for a binder clip, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is a front elevational view of a binder clip showing my new design;

FIG. 2 is a side elevational view, the opposite side being a mirror image thereof;

FIG. 3 is a bottom plan view;

FIG. 4 is a top plan view;

FIG. 5 is a perspective view on a reduced scale, with the rectangular members extended;

FIG. 6 is a perspective view on a reduced scale, with the rectangular members in a folded condition; and

FIG. 7 is a perspective view of FIG. 6, drawn to the scale of FIG. 1, in an exploded condition.

The paper fragments depicted by means of broken lines in FIGS. 5 and 6 are for illustrative purposes only and form no part of the claimed design.

The characteristic feature of this invention is achieved by the combination of rectangular finger grip portions in association with removable rectangular inserts, all as best illustrated in FIGS. 6 and 7.
