Product Features:

  • 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.

 

Product Information:

  • 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.

Note:

The Gypsy Gripper has been tested to work perfectly with all of the popular quilting rulers listed below:
  • Creative Grids - squares 4-1/2" & up
  • rectangles 4" & up
  • EZ Quilting - Companion Angle From Marti Michell
  • All Kaleido and Triangle and Log Cabin rulers
  • Lazy Girl Designs - Flying Geese X4 Ruler, Lazy Angle™
  • Ruler Phillips Fiber Art - Ten Degree Wedge Ruler

Operating Hints:

If your Gripper doesn't seem to stick well enough, try cleaning both the ruler surfaces and the suction cups with a soft moist cloth. If the Gripper doesn't seem to release easily from the ruler after you unlock the levers, just pry up gently on the edges of the suction cups with your fingers and the tool will pop loose easily.
