    Which do you prefer the Red Snappers or the Leadergrips? They look like the same thing to me, could someone please tell me the difference I am looking for some possibly. I have the Imperial Grace frame.

    I agree they do look the same, but I am not familiar with the Leader Grippers. I have the Red Snappers and absolutely love them. Between the MS and Arthritis, my hands and fingers seem to have a mind of their own most days and the Red Snappers are invaluable to me.

    I have the red snappers also. I have only had them about a month, but BOY do they make a difference! LOVE them. I looked at the youtube video of the Leader grips. It looks like the same method, but they look smaller (like in diameter) than the red snappers. The red snapper dowel is flexible and you screw them together. I'm wondering what the price difference is? I didn't check the leader grips, but I think I paid around $70 for a 12 for frame for my snappers.

    I was a quilt show a couple weeks ago and I got to try both Red snappers and Leadergrips.

    The red snappers were a little bit cheaper then the leadergrips, and I couldn't get leadergrips to fit my table. They only had ones for the 12ft tables and I have a 14ft. So I bought the red snappers.

    At the show I just went to leadergrips were $80 no matter what size you bought.

    The red snappers are made by the same company as the mondo clips.

    I bought the red snappers. I like that they screw together. You can slide them in in sections, screwing them together while you go. The person who created them also has some nice side clamps too. I have RA so I need something easier than pins.
