Man, you make it look so easy! :thumbsup: :lol:

Nice catch on the queen. I just got one of those queen clips the other day, don't know how I got by without one for so long. It is so nice to be able to remove a queen and set her aside when you have to do some tough manipulations. It is comforting after you have done what was needed and then you just release her and watch her walk safely down between the comb. Easily worth what it cost.

Nice job! I am jealous. Where did you guys get those queen clips? They look similar to what my daughters use for hair clips, ha!

yes Perry once you have the queen in the clip the removal goes alot faster cause your not having to worry about hurting her, Blueblood to be honest I cant remember where I bought it but its only like 6 or 7 bucks, worth the money.
