easy needle / easy needle

Threading a needle is not an easy job. If we can tread a needle in just a second without the help of magnifying glasses, it would save a lot of time. The shape of “easy-needle” is like a paper clip which has a double C hook to put in the thread. Users can thread the needle by the rear part of it and the thread will be placed into the needle accurately. This design helps people with poor vision or presbyopia to thread the needle in just a second.
