Holdon® Eyelet Clips & Faster Fasteners

Frequently Asked Questions & General Facts - Replies to your questions

Eyelets, old tried and tested

Question – Why can't we carry on using the old tried and tested eyelets?

Answer – With traditional banner printing methods, many banner makers used blank banners with eyelets already installed. When a switch is made to digital printing, the printing equipment cannot accept banner fabric with eyelets. The solution is to contract out the traditional eyelet process, fit them manually (or by an auto setting machine), or adopt the modern hassle free solution - provide the banner end user with a handful of Holdon® clips.


Question – How well do they grip?

Answer – The holding efficiency is tested on 650/700 grams/sqm coated vinyl fabric. The Mini holds to a minimum loading capacity of 45kg and Holdon® XTRA and MINI 100 kg. This may vary slightly from fabric to fabric.

Hem on banners

Question - Do you still need the hem on banners if you use Holdons?

Answer - Often not, because the clips do not damage the fabric and the gripping area is spread. Installing an eyelet actually weakens the area where it's installed. The performance with traditional eyelets on non-hemmed material is generally unsatisfactory. Do a comparative test yourself.

Materials and grip

Question – Will the standard Mini and Midi grip all fabrics with the same efficiency?

Answer – To generalize you may say the Holdon® Midi has the best efficiency on thicker materials and the Holdon® Xtra and Mini is better on thinner and harder material. The Holdon® Mini can on really thin/hard materials further improve it´s performance by using the 'friction insert' provided with each Mini* – this ensures exceptional griping efficiency.
