The etched fraction markings near the base of the clip (1/4", 1/2" and 5/8") refer to the the three lines that appear at the top of the clip. The first line from the top of the clip is 1/4" and the subsequent markings are 1/2" and 5/8" from the top of the clip. You get your measurement starting from the top of the clip.
