    This looks like it may be a better solution than a Klutz glove :D:D:D

    It is a clear plastice guard that sticks onto the ruler

    Wow, that's cool. I think I would like it better than the glove.

    I find the glove gets very warm, especially here in Florida (although they are forecasting snow for tomorrow :D :D

    I use my guards on my 12, 18 and 24 inch rulers and LOVE them! :thumbup: I feel much safer now cutting, and yes they're much easier to use than the glove; more convenient, too. Oh, and the price for all three was much less than one glove.

    I cut my finger twice and then my husband said I couldn't use the rotary until I got a guard. I only have it on my 6X24 ruler. All the others I am EXTREMELY careful.

    Thank you,

    OUCH!!!
    I have never liked the gloves, I used to have to wear them at work. So when I saw this, I was excited :D:D:D

    This is awesome, but wonder why the one is 22" instead of 24"?
    I will go back later and look at all the different sizes.
    I have long wanted a pair of the klutz glove but would much rather have this, esp. when my little ones start doing more with quilting :wink:
    (of course they will be supervised and will be a few years before they even think about using a rotary!)
    this is great! thank Amma! :-D

    I really don't know why, but all three guards are each 2" shorter than the ruler they're meant to be used on. I haven't found that to be a problem for me, and I've used all three sizes. I really like them!

    And the really neat thing about them, is you can cut-to-fit for a ruler that you may want a guard on.
