I bought a checkbook wallet and it does not have a duplicate flap. You know the little plastic flap that goes between the duplicate checks so that when you are writing a check, the writing wont go thru to the next check. Do you have any ideas on what else I can use instead of this plastic flap protector?

What works best for me is to cut a greeting card or the card stock type which comes in panty hose about an inch or two longer than the checks and just a bit wider and just stick it between the carbon and the next check. It works really fine and doesn' t fall out.

Try using a thin piece of cardboard cut to size for your cheque book.

I took a 4x6 index card and cut it down to fit.
It worked great!
Or you could use one of those irritating cards that are stuck between the pages in a magazine.

Easiest way? Ask the bank for another one - with the flap.
I think a piece of thin cardboard like from the back of a notebook cut to size would work well.

I just cut myself a piece of thin cardboard the exact size. I used the back of a pack of checks.

Save the square of plastic from a package of bacon, wash it well and cut to size. Wash out a milk jug and cut the size you need from the flat side of the milk carton.
Go to Tandy Leather Factory.com The item is called NCR Checkbook Insert. They cost $1.99

My chequebook came like that too... so now when I write a cheque I pull the actual chequebook out a bit and put the top flap down and write on top of it, using the cover as the duplicate flap. Works great!
