Spring loaded Latch needle


The spring loaded latch guarantees that the needle latch automatically springs back automatically in the open or closed positions. This ensures complete protection of the yarn  and prevents loose loops from being pushed back onto the open latch. An even loop structure is created, even when knitting fluffy or multi- filament yarn.
