Hi Bob –
Is there any reason to buy the general-purpose clip over the Grip Clip Pro? Or the heavy-duty clip over the Pro? I get the sense that the Pro is the way to go now, and it costs the same as those other two, but maybe you can clarify for me.
FYI I’m a proud owner of an 18′ dome I bought from y’all back in 2003; it’s been to the playa four times now, and is going on a fifth. At least one person bought the same dome a couple years later after seeing mine. Love that thing!

Yes, the GPGC and the HDGC are better than the GCP when you want to grab onto a tarp and pull or join two free hanging tarps together. The standard GC can be used to tie a tarp to a frame. The Pro is best when you want to directly attach a tarp to a frame of wood, metal etc. The “button” part of the Pro can be screwed directly to say a wooden roof or a steel pole structure and then you can “lock” on a tarp with the “ring” part of the Pro. The pro can be used to join tarps
