The Original Gypsy Gripper
- Product Information
Sometimes it can be a real challenge to hold your plastic ruler in just the right spot while cutting fabric. And if you happen to slip with the blade, you could end up cutting yourself. Ouch! That's gonna leave a mark! But now, there is a great new way to hold your rulers in place, and it makes using them easier and safer than ever before. And it's a must-have tool for quilting.
The Gypsy Gripper has a comfortable grip handle, and two large round suction cups with handy lock & release levers. Just press the suction cups to any plastic ruler with a smooth solid surface, and then flip the levers to lock The Gypsy Gripper in place. Now you can move the ruler quickly, and easily hold it on the exact position with gentle downward
pressure. Your ruler hand will be up and away from the fabric, and out of harm's way if you slip with the cutter. When you need to switch to another ruler, just flip the locking levers to release The Gypsy Gripper.
The Gypsy Gripper weighs just eight ounces, so moving it around won't wear you down. The overall size is about 3-1/2" wide by 11-3/8" long by 3-1/8" high (sitting on its cups). The durable plastic body is water-proof and washable, so it will look good and work well for years of use.
The Gypsy Gripper's suction cups will work with smooth surface rulers that are at least 4" wide, including most rectangle, square, or triangle shapes (with no slots or holes in the areas that will be covered by the suction cups). Use it with just one end attached on square or triangle rulers and it still grips perfectly, you can let the other end rest on the table while you hold in place and cut. Finger guides and a rubberized grip pad in its sculptured handle help make The Gypsy Gripper easy to position, and comfortable to hold, even during the longest cutting sessions. The handle that travels from ruler to ruler, The Gypsy Gripper is a quilter's dream come true! Make it yours for the price of a good ruler.
You will be truly stunned by the dramatic difference The Gypsy Gripperakes when using your rulers to cut fabric, and you really will wonder how you ever got along without it. You probably want to get a couple of extras to have around whenever your quilting buddies come to visit (otherwise, you might not be able to use yours again until they leave). Get a grip and rule your rulers!
