We conducted a few tests to compare the Grip Clip tarp fastener with the leading brand of tarp fastener. The biggest difference you will see is that the Grip Clip tarp fastener will never “pop off!”
Below is a “vertical pull test.” The leading brand can handle a moderate side load, but shift the load to a vertical load, and the fastener will “pop-off” almost instantly. The Grip Clip tarp fastener can handle a vertical load of up to 200 lbs!
We also fastened two tarps together and, using the same amount of force, pulled them from both sides to see which fastener would hold the two tarps together better. No comparison! The Grip Clip tarp fastener was able to keep both tarps fastened without popping off, while the competition popped off.
