Gripper Grabbing?

There are so many good rug hooking groups across social media today. Rug Hookers on Facebook had an interesting post that I was given permission to pass along.

A member  of the group – Starr Burgess had what seems like a clever idea to handle the issue of gripper frames grabbing you as you hook. She suggested to purchase low cost plumber foam sections that can be cut to length for covering your gripper strips. It comes slit, is easy to cut to length with regular scissors and covers really nicely with duct tape. With all the colorful tape available you can personalize the plain foam. Starr connected her sections at 3 corners, so it is easy to take on or off.
