Holdon® Eyelet Clips & Faster Fasteners

Frequently Asked Questions & General Facts - Replies to your questions

Strength

Question – How strong are they?

Answer – The body of the Mini is load tested to 45 kg and the Midi 100 kg.

Stress on fabric

Question – Will they tear the fabric in extreme conditions?

Answer – This very much depends on the quality of the fabric. However, our experience is that the stress on the fabric when using a Holdon® is considerably less than with traditional eyelets. When used on exceptionally tough fabric the Holdon® will tend to absorb the shock loading imposed by high wind. The larger gripping area of the Holdon® helps to spread the load. Regardless type of fastener the best way to avoid tearing is to add elastic cords to distribute the forces evenly.

Traditional printing methods

Question – We use traditional printing methods of printing banners, can we still benefit from using Holdons?

Answer – Yes definitely, our clips may not always be the only answer, but there will be many occasions when Holdon® clips will be more convenient and perform better than traditional methods. As an example, it is great on large format banners where the positioning and the number of fixing points is critical and sometimes not known until being on site.
