There is no
force to pull the thread stand over. The thread flows off with no resistance, snags or tangles, so gravity holds it in
place. Now, if your sewing table is really cluttered or vibrating severely...
The Universal Thread Holder is designed to be free standing, either vertically or horizontally.
In fact, once your thread is installed on the holder, you can use it in any position. Even upside down!
If needed, you could mount it with the adhesive of your choice (glue, tape, string, Velcro...) to any surface.
No. The swing up and down guide wire is available to gain some height to clear a cluttered
sewing surface as well as to clear the tops of most sewing machines. However, once the thread passes through the brass eyelet
exit hole, it is free to go wherever you need it to go, resistance and tangle free.
The correct size spool cap does two things. It holds the spool in place AND it provides the thread a smooth
surface to ride against instead of the rough edges of the spool itself. The correct cap to use should always be larger
than the plastic spool.
The Universal Thread Holder
comes with a cone adaptor to hold the cone onto the spool pin. The adaptor should be pushed onto the spool pin in whichever
position is necessary to hold the cone securely in place. You do not need to use a spool cap with cone type threads.
Because there are sew many sizes of spools and cones that will just not fit on your sewing
machine's spool pin. This is where The Universal Thread Holder really comes to the rescue. Now you can sew with all
of those specialty threads to create works of art with your sewing machine. Or start using those money saving large
economy cones of thread. Also works great for supplying bobbin fill thread for that portable bobbin winder. Or even
wind bobbins on your sewing machine without having to un-thread it. The Universal Thread Holder is the most versatile thread
