A nifty little bulldog clip for all of your print surface clipping needs! Works well with heated beds and glass or Tufnol surfaces.

These fixings are the best way to clamp your build plate to the heated bed, period.
They allow for some play to equialize thermal expansion and everything stays flat.BUT! These clips come in 3 (or more) sizes, and here you get the smallest ones:
19mm wide, max. 7mm "sandwich" thickness. These are too small to clamp a heated bed (3mm) and a Garolite plate (4mm) to the build plate. They might work for thin plates, but imho the thicker version is much easier to use!I found the thicker ones in our local office store, they are 32mm wide and can clamp up to 12mm thick stuff. The larger ones also have a much higher clamping force (which isn't necessarily good, but I think it's a little better than the small ones).
