Where can I get clips to hold an aquarium top on securely

I have one of those Aqueon glass lids. It tends to slip and fall off. I am pretty aggravated with it but I don't want buy an expensive hood. I have 5 gallon tetra tank. I have seen clips that go along the side of the tank and over the lid to keep it secure. Does anyone know where I can get some?

I've never seen this type of clip, unless you mean the type used on herp tanks that attatches to a screen top - could you post a picture of it?

What I've done with my hoods when I need to keep them on is to use masking or electrical tape (mostly when we have little kids in the house). Both hold resonably securely and come off without leaving a residue.

So the reptile clips gave me an idea so I found these but I am not sure if they will work for this:

I just need to tack down the rear part of the lid.

They have these too I think they'd work but $13 is pretty steep!

So I guess for now I will try electrical tape like you suggested but I post these in case someone wants to try them.
