Very simply put, bed sheet straps are the things that attach to the fitted sheet at the four corners of a bed so that the sheet will not come loose and slip off. This is a very useful invention. They go by quite a few names. Some of the names are suspenders, clips or grabbers. Below are a few tips on explaining some of the different types.
1. Bed sheet straps that are called suspenders look like a great big “X” on the underside of your mattress with clips or hooks on each end (An example of what it looks like-a child wearing suspenders to hold their pants up. There is that crisscross on their back.) After your fitted sheet is placed on the bed, pull up each corner just enough to grab hold of the end of the suspender that has the hook on it and attach it to your sheet corner. This will keep the sheet secure.
2. Another name for bed sheet straps is clips. There are four clips and each one attaches to the each of the end corners of the bed, holding the sheet secure.
3. Grabbers have a piece of elastic about three inches long and at the ends they have a clip. The clips attach underneath the bed corners pulling the sheet tight.
These tips should help get you started on deciding what kind of bed sheet straps would work best for you.
