Skin Thumble™ - Thumb Face Gripper™ – Plastic Shield
This thumble combines the features of our popular ST393 that contains a 40 ML plastic shield and our ST392 that contains the Thumb Face Gripper™. The Thumb Face – Plastic Shield Gripper™ slips onto your thumb and is held in place by our Skin Thumble™ no-slip support system. The 40 ml plastic shield allows you to push a needle through lightweight and medium weight fabric without fear of pricking your thumb. Please note that if you are pushing a needle through heavy weight or extra heavy weight fabric with your thumb please use a Skin Thumble™ model that contains our stainless steel metal shield.
A soft-rubber-gripping-pad, (25 to 35 durometer), is attached to the outer surface of the thumble. The soft-rubber-gripping-pad provides enhanced gripping-traction against anything it touches similar to your finger when it is damp. The Thumb Face Gripper’s™ soft-rubber-gripping-pad provides excellent gripping-traction against a needle when the needle is placed between your finger and the Thumb Face Gripper™, to form a finger-to-Gripper™-gripping-clamp. Enhanced gripping-traction occurs when you place a needle between a Skin Thimble™ Finger Face Gripper™ on your finger and a Skin Thumble™ - Thumb Face Gripper™ on your thumb.
