unlock to prevent the needle points from being exposed when tnot in use.

poked too deeply. It unsrews to change or replace needles. The tool holds
5 needles and comes with five 40 gauge (fine) needles. Maybe the best

your fibers. The tool is 4 inches long,, comes with 2 illustrated instruction
sheets on how to use.
