Universal needle / Needle

Universal needle
Universal needle

To help them thread a needle, I designed the Universal Needle.

The edge of the needle is separated in two ways and the extended lines cross the inner side of the needle and shape 'X'.

After you thread through the crossed part as putting them on it, the crossed part starts to open and makes the thread go through. The thread hangs on the bottom groove and you never miss the thread.

Because the crossed edge of the needle is very thin, flexible and also elastic, it opens when the thread comes in and closes when it’s fully gone through.

This is the brand-new needle that solve inconvenience of the existing needles.
