Holding Down Tablecloths

Outdoor tablecloths often fly up in the wind. Commercial hold-down springs are too small for the thick concrete or very thick wooden tables found in many parks. At the hardware store, I bought a couple feet of 6-inch PVC pipe and sliced the piping into 2-inch-wide circular sections. Then I made a cut across each circle to allow it to spring open. After the cutting, I sanded the edges smooth. These rings spring open to fit virtually any table thickness, and always hold tightly.
