You may need to use more strands and/or go through them more times. I also make sure that I get a good amount of hot glue on my knot when I glue it to my clip.
I just ripped apart the base and that is what happened. SOMEHOW the ONE place I dident get glue was on the knot and it slipped apart! I use pliars to tighten my knots so its still crazy that it slipped. At least I know its a fluke and I can feel better. I never thought about using double the thread, I will have to try that.
