These are nice replacement clips, larger than the ones that originally came with my rope light. I use these at Christmas to hold a length of 3/8-inch rope lights on the sides and top of a garage door frame. The original clips that came with the lights were just barely large enough to fit the light tube and quickly became brittle from exposure to the elements. Every year I've had to replace broken clips when I put the lights back up. These are a nice size, much easier to get the light into. Can't say yet if they'll stay flexible, but they're a big improvement over the clips that came with the lights originally.
Update: Just wanted to update this review with some durability information: All the clips I installed at Christmas 2011 held up through the harsh Southern California sun. I took the rope light down after Christmas and the clips remained on the garage door frame all year. When I put the rope light back up this Christmas, none of these clips broke, whereas nearly all the clips that came with the light became brittle and broke after a year in the sun. These clips are definitely an improvement.
