Default Clips for Sandwiching

I'm getting ready to sandwich a twin quilt. What clamps/clips work best for holding the sandwich down on my folding table while I'm pinning.

It depends on the rim of the tables. The folding tables I have I have to use clamps like woodworkers use.

Can you give me the name of the clamps so I can google them.

Some use masking or painters tape to hold down the backing as well as clamps. If you are going to use pins, slide a marble or similar under the backing so you can get the pin through the backing and back up. Also pin on a surface that the pins won’t scratch up.

I have one like Onebyone shows. I bought mine at Home Depot. I have a glass topped dining table I use for the large safety pins to pin the layers together. Table top does not get scratched.

Also use those same clips, on an antique porcelain topped kitchen table. Generations of scratches, but I usually put my big cutting mat under where I'm pinning so I don't add to it. My mat is not the full length of the table, but is the same width so fairly easy to just slide from one end to the other without disrupting the quilt.

Towel Clips
I use these ones I bought from Amazon. Easier on the hands than the woodworker ones and seem to hold well enough.
