Clingons - The movable, Reusable, Instant Eyelet

Ever had the problem of guying out your tent or awning only to find that the eyelets have torn away from the material making that guying point absolutely useless? Ever needed to put up a tarpaulin for some shelter, but the eyelets never seem to be in the right place?

Then the Clingons could be what you are looking for.  They are a durable, lightweight instant eyelet that have a variety of great uses and an essential piece of camping and caravanning kit.

What are clingons?

  • Simple & easy to fit, these hardwearing, reusable clips instantly create a strong securing point or eyelet on any type of tarpaulin, canvas & synthetic material wherever you want in seconds no tools required, no damage to the material.
  • Simple, fast and effective
  • The heavier the load the tighter the grip
  • Can be used over and over again
  • Can easily be repositioned in seconds
  • Made from reinforced nylon - lightweight, compact, strong and durable
  • Grips any hemmed or non-hemmed fabric up to 5mm thick firmly and instantly
  • Tested to support over 100kg
  • Quick release mechanisms

Who needs them?

  • Camping - quickly rig a canopy from any tarpaulin, or add extra guy lines
  • Boating - replace broken or torn eyelets, or rig a customized cover
  • Banners - hang banners without eyelets or hems in minutes
  • Building - skip covers, securing scaffolding tarps
  • Secure matting and ground sheets
  • Extra guy points
  • Replace broken eyelets
  • Add internal hanging points
  • Customise bivi and tarp covers
  • Reinforce awnings
  • Make emergency shelters

What did we think?

When I first opened the packet, my initial reaction was "Well that is not going to hold much, it is too small and not possible!"  Well how wrong I was - once we started gripping them to items and weighing them down, we were certainly not disappointed.  One word of warning, don't hang it to your t-shirt and see if you can pull it off, you wont and you will end up with a very stretched t-shirt!!

They come in a small handy pack size and are lightweight and very easy to carry around, however I would say that the large would be my personal preference of the two sizes. Not only will it hold more, but the sections are joined together, unlike the small ones, therefore you are not likely to lose half of the clip. Of course if you are careful and do not misplace things, then the small are great for the job in hand.

Very useful indeed, should be essential packing in any tenter's or caravanner's toolbox or spares box
