You don't need permanent adhesive to keep materials in place - you just need Shark Bite Fasteners. They are perfect for holding a variety of poly film and shade cloth products. Customers have also used their Shark Bites for banners, boat covers, sliding curtains, drop cloths, tarps and much more.
Shark Bite Fasteners are made up of two pieces with the bottom piece containing four large teeth and a number of smaller teeth. To fasten, you take your choice of material and put it into the four large teeth of the bottom piece and place the top piece over the teeth and slide it together. This creates a very strong hold that won't let the material slip.
These universal clips are made from UV-resistant nylon and heavy-duty plastic that won't rust or corrode. Add a double S-hook to hang materials from a thin rod or rope. We have large packs of Shark Bite grip fasteners at the guaranteed lowest price.

We ordered 150 Shark Bite Fasteners. They require some strength to fasten, but they serve the purpose. In a high wind area, I would definitely place them only 12" apart.
Now, to the customer service issue. We ordered 3 50 packs. We got 1 sealed 50 pack and 1 zipper bag with 25 fasteners. A 2 piece fastener is 1 fastener. It seems someone saw the broken apart ones and assumed the ones still connected were actually 2. We called customer service repeatedly and couldn't get through. We also left a message which was NEVER followed up on. We can't sit on hold all day. . Even as I write this on 7-2-21, I've been on hold 21 minutes and was just transferred to voicemail to leave another message. They say they will call at 'their earliest convenience'. Apparently returning calls is not convenient, since I've been waiting a week already.
I called Monday , 6-28-21, and got Brian, who transferred me to customer service, where I was on hold. I hung up and called right back, and got Sarah. I explained the problem, and she said she is in sales, but wrote everything down and would make sure customer service got the message, she even took my phone number for them to call me back. I waited all week. Here it is Friday, we need our Shark Bite Fasteners for this weekend, which is never going to happen.
When I get a live person at a company, I don't care if they're in sales or in customer service. Anyone at the company should be able to help a customer after the sale.
We enclosed an 18' by 12' open end of an RV metal building with sunscreen fabric. These Shark Bite fasteners are working great. We spaced them about 18 apart. On a single layer of fabric the clips were very easy. On a double layer of fabric it worked but it was a difficult process. We have had 30 mph winds and the Shark Bite clips are working great. I believe the weak link will be the sunscreen fabric and never the Shark Bite clips. They are rugged built.
Bought a bag of these to hold up a shade sail I wanted to make from Greentek horticultural fabric. They are great! Read comments about them being difficult to use so I knew that pliers would be needed before I started. I can get them closed using up to 4 layers of this material...even though 4 layers does take some patience and effort to get the 2 pieces closed. Fewer layers is quite easy. They pry open easily with a screwdriver. I am confident that they will hold the material tight for the life of the shade sail fabric.
I bought these to use to attach tie downs for plastic sheeting on a greenhouse. They are built very strong and will hold on plastic sheeting. I used 4mill. Sliding the pieces together to clamp the material is easy. Taking them apart very difficult. I needed a vice hammer & screwdriver.
The Fasteners were perfect for my project. I didn't know where I wanted the fastening points and they allowed me to put them where I needed them. There are easy to use and to change position yet they don't slip or come off. I recommend watching the YouTube video on how they work.
This product, Shark Bite Fastener, is a bit difficult to use but utilizing a set of channel lock pliers I was able to get them fastened. Otherwise they work very weell and hold the fabric tightly.
Had the roof blow off our tented shelter. Tried a couple of solutions, but nothing worked. Got the Shark Bites, but even they tore through 4 mil poly (even doubled over). Finally got a 10 mil poly tarp, and the Shark Bites work like gangbusters! I recommend them all the time (told someone about them just yesterday).
I folded the plastic once to make a hem, then installed the shark bites. They are so easy to install and to remove as well. Great product!
Read that they were hard to pull together.assembles them and pulled together with needle nose pliers through tie down loops.used on 6 mill greenhouse plastic.worked great. Good product.
clips were easy to install and work great
