Default Gator bite users

My curiosity finaly got the best of me and I ended up buying the gator bite and her new "grippzies" ("no slip stickies for hair clippies") those by the way are realy cool. Anyways I think Im realy gonna like the gator bite, it seems to give me the consistancy I've been wanting. Anyways... I am curious to see what other use to tie their bows off with when using this little gadget, as the device came with no tips or helpful hints... which I am a little pee..ed about since I thought the cost was a little extream... Anyways........ any thoughts.....??????

Yeah, I love mine too but some instructions/tips would be nice. I use tooth floss per the recommendation of the ladies here. It really helps with the stiffer/bigger ribbon that is harder to tie off. HTH.

I use elastic cord. I love the fact that I can adjust the loops if they are a bit off. HTH
