    Birthday present from my hubby!

    A while back I sent a link for Quilters Slidelock to DH. I had forgotten about it but he didn't. He got me both sizes. Now to try them out. Does anyone have experience with them? Name:  image.jpeg

    Use it all the time. Love mine. No slippage when using it on top of regular ruler.

    Love mine! I have both sizes and use both of them. I don't put mine on top of another ruler but I do use the another ruler to measure and then place the slidelock next to it to make the cut. Never slips!

    Love them. I bought my first one when they were called Rule Steady. I use the Rule Steady and SlideLock on top of my ruler. Much easier for me. And I don't have to worry about the rotary slipping and cutting my hand. Everyone that cuts in my sewing room with a rotary has to use it or the cut resistant glove. No exceptions. Same at our guild. Use the safety tool or don't use the rotary cutter. Our guild was almost sued when a member cut her hand because we had no safety tools available. Said it wasn't personal just insurance.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    Have never heard of them, so I googled them. Boy, why didn't anyone think of those a long time ago?? I try everything and my ruler still slips. Gotta get me one of them!

    You can never be too rich, too thin, or have too much fabric.

    The sidelock is NOT meant to be used on top of another ruler. The ruler underneath can move because it will slide on top of the fabric. If you haven't watched this video, please do so, I think it will answer any questions you have. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYOoRetnlfM By the way, I love these rulers and use them always; they are so much safer.

    what a nice surprise... they look like a fantastic addition to your rulers and cutting process, I'm sure you will get a lot of use out of them.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I use it on top of the ruler. It works best for me that way. The ruler has never slipped on the fabric, too much pressure on it from the grippers.

    Yes, there have been many previous posts on these. You just have to learn how to cut sort of backwards since there are no lines on the ruler. They really do hold the fabric in place.

    They have a video, watch it, suddenly you will say, why didn't I think of that!! Very easy to use and makes a world of difference.

    Happy Birthday! Enjoy your Slidelocks. Great rulers, so safe for your hands, and no more slipping while cutting. I have both now and use them all the time.
