The alternatives are the Tek Supply 109921 and the 'Scotty' (http://www.amazon.com/Scotty-Tarp-Clip-Black-pack). Neither grips the fabric tightly enough to withstand wind, and both require the use of a tool to release.
A tip: there is a groove in the CargoLoc clip just behind the serrated jaws. You can use this groove in conjunction with a bolt rope to hold the fabric even more securely.
The people at the factory failed to smooth down the washers' injection mold feeder lines. Some extended more than a millimeter away from the outer edge, indicating careless cutting and nonexistent inspection and quality control. It is hard to have confidence in the product in service as a grommet when it takes 20 minutes of customer effort to get the parts in reasonable shape for use.
The inner and top edges of the grommets had multiple whiskers of hard, pointy plastic. It took a great deal of filing to smooth them down, but there were still rough areas sure to stress and age lines unable to slide smoothly inside them. I will have to use bungee cord hooks or carabiners instead of less expensive loops of line like I desired.
While doing all this new product repair, sadly a requirement in modern times with trading partners like China, I noticed the upper sections of the grommet centers looked and felt thin. They will be installed in thick washers, so I doubt there will be a problem. The thinness gave the impression, however, of being cheap and weak.
The grommets are poorly finished by the manufacturer, and should have been rejected and melted down, not sold to customers. The company ought to be ashamed to have its name on such a low quality product.

Four X shaped incisions on two folded surfaces created weak points that made a hung up tarp tear away from doubled grommets in two minutes.Read more ›
1. These definitely do look better than the metal clamps I used to use, and because they are made out of plastic, I don't have to worry about rust.
2. The maximum amount these open is about 3/4 ". That's not a lot of room. Two of the patio tables had a thin "lip" that I could attach these two, but the third did not. On that table I squeezed the clips into place, but was not able to use the knob to tighten them. Hopefully they'll stay on during the winter.
3. There is a quality control problem with this product. When you turn the knob, this clip is supposed to open to about 3/4". If you keep turning, the knob is supposed to just turn without doing anything. But only 8 out of the 12 clips that I bought worked like this. With the other 4 the clip would not open more than 1/4 ", and the knob came off, though I was able to screw it back on. After I played around with these 4 clips a little I was able to get them to open a little wider, maybe about 1/2 ", which was good enough for my purposes.
Bottom line: Everyone has different uses for tarps and clips. If you are looking for something to secure a tarp to patio tables, keep in mind the limitations that I mentioned.
Update November 6, 2012: These clips stayed on during Hurricane Sandy, even the ones that I could not tighten. That was a pleasant surprise.
