breadclips: self-evident redundancy

The breadclip. It's pointless. We all know this. You spin the end of a bag of bread, and then tuck the end under the bread itself. There is no need for a clip.

What some people may not realize is that the breadclip's design is an admission of it's own redundancy.

How so? Next time you buy bread, make a point of opening and completely re-sealing the bag, with clip, once for every slice. This will mimic the actions of a religious breadclip user who enjoys single slices of toast. Certainly a scenario that the breadclip companies have planned for, no? Observe as the breadclip becomes weakened or even fails completely well before you reach the end of the bag.

A breadclip is NOT designed to last for the entire bag. If it was an essential part of the bread storage regimen, would this not be a critical design flaw? If a breadclip was needed in any way to store bread, would this weakness not have been worked out decades ago?
