Default Tablecloth Holddowns

I use plastic tablecloths on a roll that you can get from GFS with a 6' plastic table. These tables tend to have a thick edge where standard tablecloth clips do not fit. Tape is always messy and it doesn't always stick to the plastic. Is there something that you guys use that works?

Your help would be appreciated.

2" spring clamps from Home Depot work well for us.

Can you get the tablecloth roll from anywhere other than a food service provider?

I have the thick edge folding tables from Sams and these work perfectly.

Might be a cheap option.

That's what I use. Works great. I have seen someone tie knots in the 4 corners and it held great.

we use the tablecloth rolls and loops of duct tape, 2 at each end and 3 on each side, they don't move unless I want 'em to. Looping the duct tape and sticking to the table, then just roll the tablecloth into place, press once, and done

I've used the 2 inch spring clamps to hold both my tablecloth down and a 42gal trash bag to my table, fully loaded.

Inexpensive and sturdy.

spray bottle of water, mist the table then roll our the plastic table cloth - FREE

Or spend a few bucks and get a few packages of these clips:



I've been using these for a few years and they fit all my Lifetime tables.

The stainless steel ones like Coughlan's or Coleman were too small and made for park picnic tables.

Have you seen the table cloths used by Mike and Teresa Lake, at the Sam's Club events...

Fitted with elastic corners... Better than sliced brisket... Way cool

I believe that Troy Black procures these great table cloths for their use...

Use clear packing tape to tape across the bottom from side to side.
