The Clix-O-Flex camera was sold by the Metropolitan Industries company of Chicago Illinois, in circa 1940. It was a simple psuedo reflex camera constructed of bakelite with a decorative art deco scripted faceplate. It was made with a few different mold patterns. It was fitted with a simple meniscus lens and instantaneous & time shutter. It took sixteen half frame exposures (3 x 4 cm) on number 127 roll film. This camera was illustrated in Jack Galter's patent #2,213,49, dated april 17, 1940 for a "turnable means for camera take up spools". This was an improvement on the construction to eliminate drilling of the shank for attachment of a spring.
