This product from Matthews is good for securing butterflies and overheads to frames as well as many other uses on set and on location. MATTH-TIE eliminates the awkward and clumsy tying of knots and bows presently used to draw the fabric tightly across the frame. Even with large, heavy solids MATTH-TIE is fast -- it is secure and it ensures a very taut and tight fabric. MATTH-TIE makes set up and tear down both faster and easier. MATTH-TIES are an excellent substitute for the old, standard rope ties.
