Default Gluing Hair Clips

Hello
I was just wondering what everyone uses to glue the ribbon on alligator clips? I currently use Fabric Tac but lately have had a few customs let me know that the glue has come undone on the bottom of their clips so the ends are hanging out (so embarrassing!!) Should I glue gun the end of the ribbon on the underside? Any advice would be so appreciated!
Thanks!

I use hot glue (high temp glue). You can also use double sided tape.

I usually use double sided tape with hot glue on the ends to double secure them. I haven't had one problem with my clippies!

This is exactly what I do too. No problems at all.

Same here high temp glue gun all the way. I've actually had some go through the dryer and they were a-okay (not sure how because I figured the glue would melt lol)

I have used double-sided tape and hot glue at the ends but a few days ago
I had some clippies of which the ribbon came off at the top. Possibly because of the embellishment but I think I will switch to hot glue all way along the ribbon.
I prefer the double sided tape but I just do not want to risk.
