Default clips for holding quilt

What kind of clips do you use to hold the backing, batting, & quilt to your cutting table before pinning it together before quilting. I have been using the jumbo size binder clips but can not find that size any longer.

I used to use large binder clips but it depends on your table thickness.

I don't bother clamping any of it down when I baste my quilt sandwich together- I use either pins alone, or a combination of spray baste and pins.

I use green painters tape also but I just saw a video from Sew Very Easy. She got some large clothespins from Dollar Tree. I will try that next.

Thank you all so much for great ideas. I have been searching for several days for clips. Now I have several choices. I think I will head to a few of the places you all suggested tomorrow.
