No-sew trouser hook and bar

I'm trying to find the clamp-on (not sewn on) trouser hook
and bar sets like:
http://www.kleins.co.uk/trouser-hook--bar-355-p.asp

I used to have several sets, but they are all gone.  I'm
making DGD's first genuine wool tartan (at $$$/yard)
Nationals skirt for Highland Dance, and they are always made
adjustable to accommodate the growing girl's waistline.  I
don't like the look of the sewn on ones, anyone know where
the clamp-on sets are available in the U. S.?

Thanks,

Beverly

Can't tell from that sketch...

Nope, those are both sewn on the exterior of the finished
garment.

Thanks,

Uh, in the second row, first column, there is a took and eye that says,
"clamp-on type" in the description.

Oops, my bad, missed that one entirely, you're right that's
the one I seek.  Thanks!

EXACTLY!!!  Thanks so much.  What search term did you use?
Or was this previously saved to your bookmarks?

Yikes, I put 10 sets in the shopping cart and checked the
shipping:  $6.60!  More than the hooks. :-(

More searching and I located them for $.35 each at:
http://www.greenberghammer.com/store.asp?ItemID=2900
But the shipping to the western US was $15.44!


However, I just remembered Atlanta Thread:
http://store.atlantathread.com/trhoeyclonty.html

$1.65 per DOZEN!  And the shipping is $6.25, so by far the
best deal.

Thanks again, you started me down the right path.

Beverly, who can shop for bargains... ;-)

I googled "no-sew trouser hook and bar" and it officiously informed me
that it was disregarding the "and."  ;-)

That link now returns (in addition to some online sellers)
several archived links to my original query in giggle-grops
and "sewgirls.com".

I really don't like the "sewgirls.com" site (you have to
register to "...reply and use other advanced thread
options". No Thanks!) Wish there were a way to delete my
newsgroup postings from there.

If you posted from there, there is a possibility that they have it set
up so you can to go in and delete your posts so they won't show on
there, but as far as Usenet goes, deleting a post more than an hour or
two after sending it is basically useless.

What I resent is that they are stealing my (and your, and everyone
else's) posts, freely sent out over the Usenet, to promote THEIR private
sales and advertisers.  At the same time, they appear to be very
selective about which posts they steal, leaving out all the spam and the
trolls which we have to put up with.

Google-groups also archives Usenet messages which I don't
mind so much, I just find the sewgirls.com site a mostly
ad-filled, ugly site.  And folks using that site to post
messages apparently must allow the site URL to be appended
to their messages.  Even bad-as-they-are-google does not
make that mistake.

I did not, and *never have*, "posted from [the sewgirls.com
site]".  Like google-groups, they archive Usenet posts.  I
intensely dislike their interface, their ads, their nasty
habit of appending their site URL to massages, and their
"You must join/register to use our tools" attitude.  <shrug>

Well, anybody who sends email from a Yahoo address gets a Yahoo ad at
the bottom.

You might Google around and see how to use the X-Archive: No (or
whatever it is) header to keep your posts from going to the Google
archive.  That would undoubtedly also keep it from going to *holding
nose* sewgirls.
