Default Length of Gator Bite versus Sally clip

This is kind of a spin off of my thread regarding the LAMB PerkyBowz angle template.

They also make the Gator Bite and someone mentioned it has a life time guarantee, which helps explain the $20.00 price.

I seem to do ok with the Sally clip (not the stubby plastic one that looks a little like the Gator Bite but the long metal one that looks like a cross between an alli and a paper clip). The "bite" probably isn't tight enough but my real problem is that it doesn't seem quite long enough when I'm making a larger funky bow (30" of 1.5" ribbon).

Is the Gator Bite significantly longer than the metal Sally clip?

I'll measure the Sally clip later. DD2 is napping and I can't get at it right now.

TIA,
Kel

It's hard to tell when measuring the part of the Sally clip that opens but I'm guessing it's about a 1/2" shorter.

Which is a big enough difference to get me thinking about buying a Gator Bite, especially since it has a tighter grip.

I ADORE my gator bite. I always had the hardest time getting my middle to crease properly. Now my creases are perfect!

I can't imagine you would be unhappy if you get one.
