I am also clip challenged, I've tried the little metal ones and they worked okay (better than anything else I'd tried up to that point). Lately jaw clips are working a little better.
Here is what I learned: to not overthink the clipping, just shove them in where I need lift. When I was worried about technique, my results were lackluster at best. Also, I've been growing out a super short cut, I've not had my hair cut for 7 months and it has only been the last 2 or 3 months where clipping helped at all (before that, they'd just fall over). The jaw clips only started working for me in the last two weeks. Because my hair is so fine, I think I needed the length to help bulk it up enough to work.
Try the "just shove it in" method (gently of course), it may work
