Handy “Quick String” Cutter And Dispenser
The 5-in. high, 4 1/4-in. dia. plastic dispenser lets you quickly and safely cut twine, string, ribbon or yarn with one hand. It’s equipped with a hinged lid with a hole in it and a safety blade on one side. To cut the twine, just pull it across the safety blade.
The twine ball has to be less than 4 in. high and 4 1/4 in. wide to fit into the dispenser. Attachments let you clip the dispenser to your belt or hang it on a wall.
“It’s really handy to use because you can pull out a piece of twine and cut it with one hand,” says Trudy Walker, Quick Industries, Inc., Weedsport, N.Y. “Most twines, strings, and plastic tying ribbons can be fed through the loop and cut without tangling. And since the blade is safe for children, the whole family can work together on projects. Tying balloons, wrapping presents, or doing jobs around the farm can be done in a fraction of the time.”
Walker says the Quick String works great for jobs such as staking and tying flowers, grape vines or tomato plants and vegetables in need of support. “You can hold the plant with one hand and get a piece of twine with the other,” she says. “Quick String also works to tie up recyclables such as twigs, dried flowers, newspapers, and folded cardboard.
The Quick String dispenser sells for $15.95 plus S&H. Or, the website offers 2 dispensers with 6 rolls containing 250 ft. of natural Jute twine, for $45.50 shipping included.
