Default Question about lining alligator clip...

When you line your alligator clip do you glue it over the area where you pinch or do you mold it to that area? Here are examples of what I mean. Look at the area where it gets pinched open.

You can do it either way. It's all about personal preference.

I also do it like in the first picture. I only put the tinest amount of glue though so it doesn't leak down into the spring.

I do mine like the 2nd pic. It is just a personal preference.

I am experimenting with this. I think I prefer the first example though.
What kind of glue do you all use? I am using high temp hot glue and not having problems with them so far. I tried the E6000 and that stuff is a stinky mess! Me no likey! It is hard to get everything right on the clip because it doesn't dry as fast as the hot clue. With the hot glue I just wait a few seconds then I can pull it tight. WIth E6000 I try to pull tight and ribbon goes sliding.

Mine are like the first picture. It works out better for me-guess I was just taught that way and it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks!

I used to line across the back (second pic), that is how I was taught. But I've molded mine (first pic) for the past few months and I agree I think it makes them look more finished. They are both okay, I just prefer to mold them now.
