| | Re: how to use alligator clips
If you use a 5/8 ribbon for your center knot it will lie just as nicely as 3/8. If I use any bigger for the center knot, I glue it to the clips after the knot is glued down. It's not as nice but, I have never had one come apart. Most of my customers want alligator clips, so you do whatcha gotta do!!
