clothes pegs make good substitutes for bulldog clips but sometimes the wider jaws of a bulldog clip are need and cheap enough lolly sticks are free.
Step 1: Materials
two salvaged lolly sticks and a wooden clothes peg.
Step 2: Sand Parts
use sand paper to clean the lolly sticks this also aids glue adhesion. fold the sand paper over grip with the clothes peg and draw through the jaws repeat this several times this not only cleans the surface it also flattens the jaws giving a better contact area with the lolly sticks.
Step 3: Glue
place a dab of glue on each jaw and clamp on the lolly sticks. allow to dry. I used pva craft glue any other wood glue, epoxy or cyno acrylate glue would do.
