Default Will Gripzies support a stacked bow?

I am thinking of using Gripzies as my no-slip method. My question is whether it will keep in the large stacked bows. I put all my bows on double prong alligator clips and currently using velcro. It keeps bows in really well, but I'm not necessarily thrilled with how it looks (though I've never had anyone complain). I like that Gripzies are all uniform in size and would look more professional. I'm on the fence about switching for fear that they will not work as well as I want them to. Thoughts?

gripzies are really hard to put on a double prong clip, they are much to thin, and you would need to use 2 of them

I think this is a great question. I just bought a couple packs myself - and have compared them to the shelf liner I was using. I think they work very well. I tried a medium korker and a smaller stacked bow and they both did well. I don't make the huge bows so I can't comment on those. What are your thoughts on their price and is there a better price than on TRR? I've also been thinking of trying silicone.

If you like the Gripzies, you can get them pretty cheap on the wholesale site. http://www.gripzieswholesale.com/Gri...lip_Grips.html
You can get 1300 of them for $18.99 or 650 for $12.99. I thought about silicone too, but not sure it would look any more professional than what I am already doing. LOL. From what I've seen, it looks like a pretty messy venture. I'm trying to find something that looks better, is reliable, and easy.

Well, now that is not encouraging! LOL. Maybe gripzies is not my answer. Thanks for you honesty though. Maybe I'll just stick with what I'm doing.

Thanks for letting me know about the wholesale. Much appreciated. I was just going to add that I use the single prong clips and they seem to fit well and do look clean and professional. I too think silicone might be messy, but everyone seems to rave about it, so I might try it. We'll see. I hope it works out for you = )

I just was in a buy with a very similar product, but its a tad shorter and much wider then gripzies! I got a sample and am SUPER excited about them! They are basically the same concept, but better!

are you willing to share? I am seriously looking for a better non-slip idea.

Ditto! I would like to know too. I've not seen a group buy on this type thing and I'm on lots of groups. LOL.

I use Gripzies and am very happy with them...when I use single prong clips. I agree, that they do not look as nice on double prong clips...they just pop through the middle of the prong.
