Default How do you stick rhinestones to metal snap clips?

Oh, please help me! The boutique I sell to wants snap clips covered with rhinestones. I have tried hot fix and a generic flexible glue and nothing will stick to the clips, even after I took sand paper to them to rough them up a bit. Any thoughts? My next try will be E6000, but I think they are just going to pop off like the others and I hate using that stuff around my kids (not to mention the kids that put the clips in their mouths). Both of my tries looked great and stuck well until I unsnapped and opened the clips. At the point they all came off. The rhinestones stuck together in a straight line, but fell off the clip. What glue sticks to metal? Please let me know if you have any thoughts!!!
Jill

My only thought was E6000. I wonder, though . . .

Hope someone else can chime in here. I'm interested to see what works.

I'd have to vote for E6000. According to its description:

"E-6000 is a unique adhesive formulated to meet high-performance industrial requirements. It adheres to more surfaces than virtually any other adhesive. E-6000 has exceptional adhesion to wood, metal, glass, fiberglass, ceramics, masonry and concrete."

Let it cure in a well-ventilated area (I use the garage) overnight. If that doesn't work, I'm out of suggestions. Let us know how it works!

what about covering the clip with ribbon first?? i use it to stick embellishments on ribbon and it holds great. maybe that will work?? it is pretty strong stuff.

I wonder if Gem-tac would do the trick.... I was told it is as strong as hotfix. I've only used it to adhere to ribbon, never metal.

Don't do E-6000. It will warp the foil backing.

E6000 would also be my vote, but I like the ribbon idea. When I stone costumes though its E6000!

Thank you all for your suggestions. I have never tried Gem Tac. I'll try E6000 and Gem Tac tomorrow over the next couple days and let you know how it goes. I thought of the ribbon idea, too. I think that will be my last resort (only because it is an extra step and expense), if the Gem Tac and E6000 don't work out.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR REPLYING!!!! You ladies ROCK!!!
