Hi, i am very new to this so i might be wrong but, i was having the same problem. i was using a very old glue gun(about 15 year old) and old glue. i had a newer one and i changed it and havent had that problem. just a thought. good luck.

What part is coming undone? They're coming off the clippie? You really have to use a lot of glue, like a thick long line for korkers.

Is your glue starting to cool before you get the stuff put on? If so, it won't stick as good. Depending on your glue, sometimes you have to work super fast.

Good quality glue sticks? Avoid the cheap stuff...

Make sure it is new, high temp glue and gun is switched to high temp, if you have that feature. That should solve the problem.

I've had issues with the tape pulling off of the top on clippies. Its great for a bow, though.
