Default Re: Gator bite-HOW IN THE WORLD do you keep the bow

After I get mine where I want it I sort of flatten it down with my fingers so I can get ahold of it. Then I slide it in the clip. I usually hold the bow with my fingers in a v shape. I use my pointer & middle finger for one side & my thumb & ring finger to hold the other side. I try to hold it out a little from the center (as far as I can without the fold slipping) and slide it in. You could probably use alligator clips to hold it if you put them in from the sides. Then after you get it in the clip you could take the alligator clips off.
I normally have to do a little adjusting after the bow is in the gator bite no matter what bow I am tying.
