Default Re: Plastic clips?!?!

I hope they don't break. I have ladies who want them because Gymbo uses them, and they like them. I am nervous now.

Yes, I would also like to know if it is hot glue or superglue or what?!?!

I had ordered about 10 bows with that same plastic clip some broke off and the rest wore out and wouldn't close anymore
So we basically got to wear them about 3-4 times

UGGG, I wonder if I should say something to them. I have two ladies who want them. I have the bows done just haven't put the clips on. I hate for my customers to only get a few uses out of them due to breakage/wear!! What should I do?!?!

Maybe just let them know they don't last as long as pinch clips and perhaps they'd just rather get the pinch instead.

The ones from Gymbo last a lifetime for us =)

I used e6000 for the glue and it held up really well. I didn't use a lining bc they already have the teeth and they stay put.

Maybe say something like this....

Hi. I have been talking with some of my bow-making friends, and they have told me that the plastic clips do not hold up as well as the Gymbo ones. I haven't used them before so I am just going by what they have said. I just want to make you aware of this prior to sending your bows out. I have no problem using them for your bows, but I just want to let you know upfront what I have been told. If you prefer a lined alligator clip with grippies, I can do that instead. Either way, just let me know. Thanks, Lori

Whatcha think!?!?
