I've not used anything like them but they do look like they would hold ribbon down better. I am assuming alot of people use hot glue to adhere the ribbon to the metal but I have found it breaks off easy until wrapped tight or if an end gets loose. The holes look like they would give it a place to groove into and keep it from peeling/snapping off easy. I think they would hold better, but it might make it easier to glue them shut XD ( I have a bad habit of glueing things to other things they aren't supposed to be glued to lol...)

their website says they are
Quality: Grade A (softer metal, tighter clip)

What is the difference in Grade A or Grade AA for their regular clips?

I've tried them and they are NOT as tight of a grip as Rabom's.

I bought these from trimweaver about a month ago & I really didn't like them. They bend really easy.

Just an update! I bought some and......my daughters hated them. It seems like they hold TOO tight. The metal also seems too be thinner so the tips bend easily.
