Tool Review: Finger Guards
Guidelines™ 4 Quilting has come up with yet another very handy tool for quilters – finger guards that can be placed on any ruler to protect our fingers while cutting. Their suction cups make the very easy to attach and they are easy to remove, too..
They come in sets of two so that we can use one on each side of two sides of larger rulers such as 12 inch squares. We often we make cuts along the left or right side of large ruler and a second cut across the top. Placing them in each direction protects our fingers as we make each cut.
The rulers and the finger guards are made of polycarbonate which is 25 times stronger than acrylic which is another great feature. I tried to take photos without any glare showing but it was beyond my photographic abilities.
Click on the photos to visit the Guidelines™ 4 Quilting website to order these handy tools! The first photo will take you to their website and the second directly to the finger guard page.
Accidents do happen and it’s always best to take steps to prevent them. As the saying goes – and it’s true – “Better safe than sorry!”
