Clover clamps are not intended to stay put when pulled on. How much they resist depends on how much meat is in their grip. The point is that you have the dilemma of leaving them on, and enduring the pain they inflict, and pulling them off, which is a "pleasure" all by itself, not just in the removal, but the aftermath too. Clover clamps are the gift that gives twice.
What's really fun is that every second it takes you to decide to finally pull free, the pain you are blessed with after removal increases. That's when you really appreciate the value of an effective gag.

They were designed for people who sew to hold fabric on a cutting table while you cut out your pattern. That's why you can often find them in a sewing or fabric shop. Of course, having said that, they do have other uses.

But go to a real fabric store, not a home decor store pretending to be one.
