Default Grosgrain lifting off of clips! How to prevent?

Hi all

I use the double side tape to line my clips. I also use a dab of hot glue in certain places to secure the ribbon. However, the ribbon is starting to lift off the clips in 1 place -- right at the bend in the clip where end to pinch open dips down to be the long piece (make sense?) Right in that bend, I started adding a dab of glue to prevent that, but still happening.

Has this happened to you and how to prevent??
Thanks

What type of DS tape are you using? Are you pulling the ribbon too tight? I rub the ribbon down on the tape a few times and I also heat the clip with my lighter. You have to allow the tape to "cure". Let is sit for a bit it gets sticker.

What brand is the best to use? I've been wanting to try it but was afraid of the lifting.

I use the one that is sold off of hipgirlclips. I run my finger over it a few times and the lifting is happening on items I made a few weeks ago! I brought all my stuff out at a show and noticed all the ribbon lifting, I was soooo embarrassed. I may be pulling too tight

What tape would you rec?

Should I be using the 3/8 to line? I have the smaller size and use that. When I used the 3/8 before, I noticed that my daughters hair would stick to the clips in little places that weren't perfectly aligned, which just sometimes happens

The same exact thing happened to me! I stopped using it and went back to my glue gun. The tape on my clips that is lifting off is really hard(almost like thin plastic), not sure what is going wrong. I noticed that this was happening to my older in stock items too. Glad you asked I was begining to think I was the only one.

I do not know anything about the tape, but just wanted to throw it out there that I use hot glue and have never had an issue

I use 1/4 for the clips. I have never had any problems with the tape. I posted over the summer where my granddaughter went swimming in clips and we left in sitting in the sun for a few days it still held up.
