How so you exactly use the duck carpet tape, and exactly how do you attach it to the clip? Thanks!

Imagine 3" roll of non-slip foam with an adhesive backing on it (with paper on it to protect the adhesive). Just cut into 1" lengths (so you have 3" x 1" strips) then cut each of those strips into little snippets, as thick as you'd like your strip to be (I do just a tad thinner than 1/4"). So you end up with 1/4" by 1" strips ready to peel and stick! Then peel off the paper backing and stick to the underside of your gg lined clip.

I'm going to try the Duck tape. Everyone has said such good things about it. My Walmart doesn't carry it, so I'll have to check Home Depot of Lowes. Thanks for everyone's response on this.

This week my friend is at Disney in Florida with her family. I made her little granddaughter a Minnie clippie to wear while they are in there. She has worn it everyday in the Florida heat in fine 3 year old hair and they said the Duck Hold-It carpet tape that I used held it in her hair until they take it out at night. So, that's just a little testimony of how well it works.

I made my 2 year old some little clips with the 3/8 glitter ribbon. I didn't think I was EVER going to get it out of her hair. I ended up having to take her little ponytail out first so that I could slide the clip all the way down the length of her hair... I never thought about lining clips with any type of gripper because I haven't really needed to, but glitter ribbon would be a definite option..... Sparkly, but not the cheapest.

Put it on the site closest to the bow. You don't want it on the other side, because that is the part that needs to slip under the hair & the grip would get in the way.

I've used Gripzies on my double prong alli clips for about a year and a half now and I love them. I just put it down the center of the clip, and it's always held the hair well. It eventually does flatten out, but I have clips I made my daughter a year and a half ago with the original Gripzies in them and they still hold well. I do wish they were wider, but I love the convenience of them. I use the duck carpet tape for my mini snap clips, and it works well for them, but I hate the smell of the stuff and it doesn't seem to bond as well to the ribbon as the Gripzies. That's just my 2 cents .
