Ditto, love the red snappers, and also the Red-E-Edge for holding the sides of the quilt.

I have the red snappers. I really like them. They are really simple to put on, you just need to allow a little more backing so you don't run into them with your machine. I can load a backing very quickly. I think leadergrips would be good also, I just like that the part that goes in side the leaders, well they are individual sections which screw together...that's where I think the red snappers surpass the leader grips in ease of use...unless they've changed their design. I use her side clamps too.

I have the Leader Grips and love them versus using pins! However the way they connect is not great...mine came apart and if the Red Snappers screw together then I would probably buy them. Please don't get me wrong, I still love the Leader Grips and bought them when they first came out, so maybe they have changed the way they connect. Even not connected they work great. No more pins!!

I have the red snappers and love them, can load a king size quilt in about 20 mins. with no pin sticks. The inside bars do screw together.
