    Silicone Gripper Tape -- where can I find some?

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Some of my jerseys, and nearly all of my shorts have silicone grip strips on them to hold them in place. I have a couple of jerseys that I love, but I'd love them more if they would STAY PUT, and not ride up. So... I looked around at my local sewing/craft store and found nothing, did a google search and couldn't find anything either.

    Has anyone seen gripper strips that can be sewn on to garments?

    For example, I have this jersey, and love that the back side of it has a strip of silicone gripper material on the bottom edge to keep it in place.

    Does anyone know where I can find something like this to sew into a jersey that likes to ride up?

    I couldn't find silicon gripper tape, but I have used silicon in a tube, from the hardware store and it works great.

    It looks like there is some, about halfway down that page.

    my site lists all the specialty outdoors fabric/notions retailers out there. Gripper elastic/tape is not something you'll find at Joanns. One of the above sources should have it. Availability varies, this is why I am not giving you ONE store to check with.

    Try SewSassy--they have a wide variety of silicone backed elastics.
