Attaching sheets

Garters prevent sheets from slipping off – appropriate for persons who use electric beds

Two garters sit on either side of an elastic band. The elastic band holds the corners of the sheet together underneath the mattress.

Authors comments
The elastic bands with clips that small children use to keep mittens attached to jackets can be used instead of garters.
