No, I meant the circumferential hangers.

Since I occasionally processed my own movie film, I usually had plenty of 
the light-tight cans that the blank film was shipped in.  But, usually 
only 100 foot reels, so too small for tape.

Large reels didn't cost MUCH, but it added up.
Some people would scrap old films for the reels, cans, and shipping boxes.
(such as old Doctor Who episodes that probably wouldn't be aired again)
