Just like you can buy "Fireline" or monofilament or plastic "organizers" for beading FAR cheaper if you buy the same exact product from a fishing department (where they originated from, just given different packaging and price points for "crafters"), this product too is just as easily found, called a "depth finder" used by fishermen--clips onto the fishing line-less than $5 for sure, maybe even less than $2.

I had been using a bag of pennies to give the end of the braid some weight but this weight is easy to just clip to the end of the braid and is much less obstrusive.

This has made kumihimo braiding sooo easy. I would suggest that every braider has at least one of either weight! :o)

This is my second purchase, I'm notorious for misplacing things. I know the first one is around here somewhere and I will find it eventually. Any way, I use these for my kumihimo, especially the heavier cords. It was noted that the alligator clips could ruin the silkier fibers of the cords, however this need not be the case. I either attach a final finish on one end and attach the clip to that (never touching the cords) or I attach the clip to the end of the cords that will be eliminated before finishing the ends. So I have not had any problems. I really like the counter weight it provides.

You kumihimo lovers, this is a wonderful gadget! In the past, I used a home made device (a clothespin with a mesh bag of coins) for the right amount of weight to start my braid. This is a lot easier to use, just clip the thing on and that's it! I would like to get other weights so I could use the right amount for particular threads.

This is an item that is not easily found but, of course, it was available through Amazon! And what a wonderful invention it is! It took a bit longer in arriving than some orders but is worth the wait. Makes Kumihimo so much easier and a joy to do.

I bought this one and the heavier one for my kumihimo braids. I was unsure that they would make a difference but they really did. My braids are tighter, more professional that they were before. If you plan to do much kumihimo, it is a good purchase and will yield great results.

The instructor of our kumihimo class told us that we needed to have a weight on the end of our kumihimo ropes. You could either use a special tweezers or this weight. The weight is much more manageable and stays out of the way of the bobbins.
