Holdon® Eyelet Clips & Faster Fasteners

Frequently Asked Questions & General Facts - Replies to your questions

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® 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.

Position of the clips

Question – How do I position the clips? Only on the corners?

Answer – No, you need more than on the corners. When you apply the Holdons - think EYELETS! Notice how metal eyelets are mounted on every general eyeleted tarp and do the same with the Holdon® clips, normally with a distance of 50cm in between eyelets/clips. Another example with banners: apply 3 clips per sqm and never more than 1m spacing between clips/eyelets.. Holdon® clips are not intended to be used only on corners of banners or similar application fields.

Re-use of Holdon Clips

Question – How many times can I re-use Holdons?

Answer - Holdon® clips are made from a nylon/GRP polymer mix which gives them great strength and plastic memory. Providing the clips have not been put through long term repeated extreme stressing, you can use them over and over again. The best test is to fix one on some fabric and put the maximum manual loading you can on it. Their enduring gripping power is amazing.
