These heavy duty tarp clips create a grommet instantly on any material. Powerful cross-hatch surface gripping jaws clinch tighter as tension is applied. Great for fastening plastic sheeting, drop cloths, tarps. etc. Holds fast to canopies, awnings, pool covers, towels, BBQ covers, sails, cables and bags, netting and hunting blinds. They open wide enough for clamping any material up to ¼" thick and are crack resistant to 35° below zero.
These work great for their intended purpose. I stopped carrying a raincoat/poncho when hiking and I use these to clip my groundcloth around me and the pack when raining. Works well with poly sheeting as well as with an ultralight tarp (use a backing between the ultralight material and clamp jaws).
I have tested the Minnow Grippers in winds approximately 30-45 MPH gusts and they held my Norton Space Blanket (Tarp) without fail. We did add a piece of material to both sides of the gripper to prevent the tarp from ripping out, and it held great.
Need to hold down a tarp, no grommet holes? This gadget will do it. (of course, you need more than one). Made of sturdy material.
It works great however very difficult to open after closed. Have to use a flat blade to open up the teeth.
