Lock Toggle Leather Closure
Made in the USA
2.25" wide x 1.75" tall
This leather closure screws into knitted, crocheted, handwoven, and sewn garments making it removeable for laundering and a striking alternative to conventional toggles, buttons, and frogs. The leather makes the closure relatively light considering the size of the Lock and its sibling screw-in snap closures. The tongue on one side of the Lock comes up through the slot in the other side, doubles back on itself and 'locks' in place with a snap, making it extremely secure.
To use, unscrew the screws on the back and remove the backing washers from the shank. Place the closure on your piece and work the shanks of the screws gently in between the stitches of your knitwear from the front. Place the backing washers over the screw shanks on the inside of the knitwear. Screw in the screw with your fingers to secure.
To avoid losing screws or backings, place a tiny drop of clear nail polish in the threaded cylinder before securing. This will keep the closure in place while it's on the body but still allows you to unscrew it when you are ready for a change. Clean the cylinder with nail polish remover on a q-tip between uses.
