Tablecloth Clips For Outdoor Table Covers
Vinyl tablecloth reviews, ideas, and more advice.
Having a gathering outside can be a huge hassle. You need a table to sit at, and then you also a tablecloth to protect the surface, but also form a clean place for you to eat. The problem is that on a windy day, eating outside is pretty much miserable, as you’ll probably end up having to track down your tablecloth more than once. For that reason, you may want to consider investing in tablecloth clips. These are handy little tools that can be clipped to the end of any tabletop, so that you can actually hold the cloth in place, so that you don’t have to worry about tracking it down once the wind blows. Plus they come in all different sizes and styles, so you’ll never be short of options when you’re looking for the most ideal tablecloth clips to take with you.
How Much is Enough?
When it comes to picking out just the right type of tablecloth clips, the main thing is going to be ensuring that you always have enough for a windy day. Depending upon the strength of each clip, you may find that it’s enough to actually use one for each corner, but this isn’t always the case. The design of tablecloth clips is such that they are meant to slip onto the table tightly, and hold the cloth in place firmly. But the wrong type of design may not fit on your table, or may not be strong enough to hold the tablecloth down under quite a bit of wind. For that reason, you want to choose the right type, and you may want to purchase enough so that you can double up clips on the very windy days.
Choosing The Right Type
From there, you also want to think about installing the right type of tablecloth clips, based upon the shape or size of your table. Typically, you’re going to want clips that are situated on each of the four corners of the surface. But you also want to be sure that they can handle a table of that size. This means you want to be sure that they are flexible enough to bend to your will. This way, you can be sure that they will sit on your table as easily as possible. Some tablecloth clips are only meant for thin tables, and cannot be stretched to much larger tables, while the converse is true of other types. You have to be sure that you have the right kind for where you’ll be eating.
But of course, if you don’t like the ideal of tablecloth clips for any reason, you also have other options. You can try tablecloth weights as well, if you’re just looking for a quick fix to keep your table in line. With the right type of weights, you can actually ensure that your tablecloth stays in place the whole time, plus the weights can come in fun shapes. You can find weights that are shaped like fruit, vegetables, or even like your favorite cartoon characters. The possibilities are pretty much endless.
