Mondo Bag Clips: Similar To Red Snappers That Quilters Use

Red Snappers can be purchased by the size needed between $60-$80. These Mondo Bag Clips are on Amazon for about $45. And if you are a prime member you get free shipping.

The mondo clips are about 36” long and you get 10 of them in the pack. Plenty of extras to use for later. I love them. I was looking into getting the Red Snappers but thought there had to be a less expensive item on the market. Just a few years back I became a frugal spender and that meant looking for deals. I’m so glad that I came across the mondo clips on Amazon.

I have a used Gammill Premier-Plus and use three pieces in each leader. I float my tops so I just need them in two leaders. My leaders had “pockets” so that I could place the rod into them.

I cut them down to size, so that I can first snap them in the middle of the backing fabrics. I love using them, but the first few time they were not fun at all. They are a bit stiff at first but after the third time using them they start becoming flexible. I use my thumb and forefinger to snap them into place. Takes a bit to get used to them, but I can load and definitely unload a quilt quickly.

They can be used for other items too…chip bags, cereal bags, frozen food, coffee, trail mix, basically anything you want to keep fresh.

    Joey, are you still using Mondo clips instead of Red Snappers? I ask because I have wasted money on 2 other alternate products, one recommended by another blogger, have failed, one too tight for the heavy leaders on my Innova and one that became too loose with use. I don’t want to waste more money but don’t want to spend $$ if Mondo clips will work well for a few years. Thanks for a reply!

      This post was done in Nov. 2015 and I’m still using my Mondo clips. If I have enough backing fabric I use my mondo clips for sure. If I don’t and I worry if it will be close then I pin.

      I hope this helps.
