Great alternative use...”
I've been looking everywhere for a way to prolong the life of the fitted sheets we were given as a wedding gift, whose elastic has died so they don't stay in place on the mattress. These clips really do the trick and aren't nearly as fiddly as some of the other options I found. The only bad thing is that one of the clips has broken, but then it's not designed to go on bedsheets so I can hardly complain about that!

I wasn't sure these would be strong enough to work but they do the job perfectly. Still going strong after a couple of months and the cover hasn't shifted at all. I accidentally ordered three packs and found they are versatile - thankfully!

Great product for a great price”
by Mrs Howitt
I have an extra large wide ironing board (L144cm x W43cm) and bought a cover for it which was too big. Looked around for some clips from other websites however the reviews on them weren't brilliant. I then looked at Lakeland and bought these ones. They are great, they are easy to fit and now my ironing board cover fits nicely. I did buy 2 packets as mistakenly thought there were only 2 in a pack not 4. However, I will be keeping the others as spares. Once again Lakeland has a good product for a good price.

Not just for ironing boards!”
I purchases these to try and save an old fitted sheet, on which the elastic is gone, and the sheet moves all over the place. I put one on each corner, and it worked a "dream"! The sheet is staying neatly where it belongs. All of the clips worked, even the short one. Thanks for another great product! I'll be ordering more soon.

lakeland to the rescue”
I bought a new ironing board cover which claimed to "fit all sizes of ironing board" only to find it certainly didn't fit my standard size board. I bought some of your ironing board clips and, problem solved! The cover is now a snug fit and I can iron without constantly adjusting it. Once again Lakeland come to the rescue

Such A Handy Little Product”
I bought these 'on spec' when I replaced my ironing board cover, thinking that I might need them, and I'm so glad I did! Whilst the cover itself is great, one of the fasteners was in completely the wrong place so I couldn't use it. Enter the clips! I have the very small one anchoring the cover at the end of the ironing board, and two more at the other end, holding the cover diagonally (I have a strange ironing board!). The last one I use to replace the redundnat cover fastener, and this works really well. I am very pleased with them, and they are great value for the price.

Very easy to fit, do not damage the cover fabric but hold nice and snug, no more slipping!

I confess, I don't use these on my ironing board. I have four, and I use them to clip the corners of the fluffy blanket under my bed sheet together underneath... invaluable!

I started to give in to any excuse not to do my ironing. My ironing board was a real nightmare with the foam not staying in place and curling up - made ironing so frustrating. These little lifesavers have really worked. I won't go as far as to say ironing is now fun, but I will say my ironing days aren't filled with frustration and annoyance. Thank You Lakeland for such a simple yet effective product

Great idea but....”
I loved the idea of these and bought them as my covers do move around abit. Unfortunately, after a couple of months, two of the straps have come away from the metal clasp. I do have a slightly wider board but was surprised that these didn't last.

This product is a great idea! I had previously been taping my ironing board cover down at the sides as I could not find the right size for my board. However these are perfect for holding the cover in place and I can't recommend them enough!

I did not experience any problems with these, they are working fine so far, fit perfectly and it was even my non-domesticated boyfriend who attached them so very user friendly!! Not expereinced any problems that other users have commented on! Great value for money too!

What a great idea!”
by Miss Richardson
Have been struggling finding an ironing board cover that fits my ironing board. All that is now a thing of the past thanks to the ironing board clips. Easy to attach to the cover and keeps it nicely in shape around the board. If only I had found these years ago!!!!

Ironing board clip covers”
Wish I'd read these reviews before going shopping today! One of the metal ends of the clips came away as I was lifting off the card cover and is in three pieces - I guess I could slot it back but it seems a bit tricky. I haven't time to take the pack back to Windsor so will just make do with the three strips that are left which are doing a reasonable job.

I thought that this was a brilliant idea but was sorely disappointed when I got home and tried to attach the clips. I don't know if it is because I have a wide ironing board (43cm), but when I attached one side and tried to stretch it my ironing board cover ripped. I will now have to look for a replacement cover to fit my board. Maybe the packaging could be amended to include width measurements rather than a general "fits most standard size ironing boards and covers".

These have been on my ironing board now for some weeks and have held up fine. The cover is less prone to slipping off now (it's slightly too small for the board). I found when putting them on that it's possible to put the cover material in the wrong place - once you figure out that the material fits between the two sets of teeth, not between the teeth and the upper part of the clip, they grip very well.

good idea but.......”
Excellent idea BUT short strap came apart straight away whilst clipping on. Replacement pack received but similarly a long strap came apart straight away. Fortunately with the 2 packs I now have spare long straps so hope the short one holds. The metal clip just doesn't hold the elastic - pity!

I was delighted to see these clips back in your catalogue. I use them to secure fitted sheets at the bottom of the bed.

Problem solved in seconds!”
I have been so frustrated for ages with my ironing board cover. Every time I moved clothing either towards me or away from me the gathered cover slipped off, even though it was pulled as tight as I could manage, making my ironing a real chore! I bought these clips from Bluewater yesterday, and they have solved my annoying problem in just seconds! So easy to use even with my arthritic hands! I have never seen my ironing board look so tailored! Highly recommended to all, and the price is a steal! Thank you Lakeland! :O)
