Default What alligator clips to buy? (personal use)

I'd like to make a few bows for DD and maybe for a few of her friends, depending on they turn out! I'm new at this - and I've read a lot about double pronged professional alligator clips being the best. Is that what you all would recommend? I'm not a big fan of the snap clips - they seem a bit hard to manage for a newbie.

I'd prefer to buy from ebay or amazon. I can do in the store too, but I think Michael's etc are pretty pricey for only 6 clips or so.

Please send your recommendations!
Many thanks!

I prefer single prong and get all of mine from a member on here. Here is her shop http://www.katescraftstore.com/hardw...lligator-clipsIf you want to get them in a store I would recommend Sally's Beauty Supply. Avoid Hobby Lobby clips. The difference between the tension on them and the other places is very noticeable.

I buy single prong at Sally's Beauty Supply. They are pretty nice ones. ONLY buy the large box, not worth the price for the smaller package of them. The boxes are usually on the bottom shelf, I think a box of 100.

I will only use single prong alligator clips also. If you want just a few to work with you can pick up a small pack at Hobby Lobby. Though beware! All Hair Accessories are addictive!

I use the double prong alligator clips...I believe the ones at Hobby lobby isn't as good as others I have used...I'll use the single prong ones every now and again if I run out of the double prong alligator clips..

I prefer alli's with teeth but if I had to choose between single or double prong it would be double prong from Sally's.

I love single prong alligator clips. I use http://www.alwaysunderpay.com I have never had an issue with them and I love their clips. I'm not a fan of double prong because I can't ever find a set that have the right tension level.
