    I just love to have new quilting tools, but I have a small purple gripper tool that won't grip! This is supposed to work with a small ruller. Does anybody have some hints on how to make the suction work again?

    Moisten the rim just a bit - wet your finger, run it around the edge of the suction cup. Ta da - there you go - suction again!

    I have the little one also, and it doesn't grip as well as the larger one.

    I will try that Linda, I've tried moistening the whole area, but doesn't hold the grip, thanks for the suggestion.

    I will try it too. I really like it for little, square rulers.

    Linda, you are so correct, I did what you suggested a few days ago and it is still holding....thanks so much for the idea.
