Interchangeables give a huge amount of flexibility. In circular knitting I use the correct size for gauge on the right or active needle and a couple of sizes smaller on the left or passive needle. This makes the stitches flow back onto the passive needle easily and makes for faster knitting, especially with decreases where you need to knit into two or more stitches. With a 40" cable I can knit a flat afghan in one piece. Using magic loop I can knit a 6 stitch I cord with no problem. To make a hat using a longer cord, just make a loop of the cord at the beginning of each round (kind of half of a magic loop technique), as the rounds get smaller, switch to full magic loop.
The whole thing fits in a little pocket container with room for stitch markers and a cable needle. I threw away my straight needles. No more long ends flopping about. No more heavy work to hold up. No more clumsy double points. Knitting with this system is streamlined and tidy with all the weight on the cable, resting in your lap.
I have two sets, one in sunstruck (light colored) and one in caspian (darker colored). With a different colored needle in each hand I can tell instantly which direction I should knit (in the round). With a needle that contrasts the color of the yarn on the passive side, it's easier to see the stitches as you're knitting. If you purl tighter then you knit on flats, you can put a larger needle on the active purl side to get a really even knit.
This set will literally do anything. I don't use anything else. You can add larger size points that work with the system, or different size cables directly from Knit Picks (sadly, they are a little slow to ship and no Amazon prime 2 day delivery).
What I love about Knit Picks is they make very high quality products for a very reasonable price, so I can rationalize 2 sets of their needles rather than one set of Hiya Hiyas or Addis and not give up anything. Same goes for their yarns. Why buy Cascade 220 for $10/100 grams, when I can buy Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, which is almost identical and has the same huge choice of color ways for about $7/100 grams? Not a huge difference for a one or two ball project, but it is if you are making a sweater.
I have never had a single problem with a Knit Picks product, but I know they will replace anything if I do. Their customer service department responds right away to any questions I've had, so I feel confident that a return would be hassle-free.
I have rarely found a company that I have loved as much as I do Knit Picks for quality products and services, including awesome tutorials, blogs and other inspiration, so I am happy to recommend them to anyone who knits or crochets or in contemplating either or both!
Let's talk about the key ! Thanks to the others who have posted I figured out the key. I would say it is more of a rod that you slid through the hole so you can hold it and turn the needle point to make it more tighten then just finger tightened. It gives you something to hold on to and turn you needle tighter this makes a Hyde difference because they will unscrew if not good and tight. So use the key/rod slide it though the hole so you can hold it as you twist the needle point.
Enjoy I am !
