I'm with the "smaller loop" group to give it a little more resistance against falling free. Put a rubber band, clothespin, paperclip. etc. around one loop to simulate having it stitched and see if it solves the problem.
No, G. What HOI is describing will pull right out. It's just a half hitch after you put the tag through the loop (I think!
) That's an excellent idea, Hog. That's what I'm going to try today.
Also, a rubber band on the loop is an excellent idea for simulating a smaller loop. But, also, that makes me think of fixing a rubber band around the loop fabric PERMANENTLY to create some friction on the loop. I just gotta figure out how to wind a loop around a loop. Maybe just some "scratchier" polypropylene line whipped around the loops...Yeah, that'll work, I think. Stay tuned! Thanks, brothers and sisters!
