Default Split loom replacement

Hi All,

Aside from the special installation tool or feeding it through the end, what is the easiest way of removing and installing split loom?

Thanks for the help!!!

Split loom is exactly what it says - split. No tools needed. Slip it in and slip it out - like putting a hot dog in a bun No mustard required

There are tools available to make installing split tubing easier, kind of like a mini shoe horn.

Hi Mike,

Wierd string of thoughts you started, with the mention of a mini shoe horn-like tool. As a kid, my mother would use a big metal spoon to help us get our shoes on. So, after your post, I went to the silverware drawer and tried different spoons on different sizes of loom. The sundae spoon worked the best, but (and this is the part that may get me into trouble with Mary) not without a little modification. Rolling the edges of the bowl-end over and bending the handle seems to work well on 1/2" to 1" ID stuff. A bigger spoon would probably work for bigger loom, but I have to be careful how many prototypes I make: We only have a couple of sauce spoons.

Thanks for the trigger, Mike!!!

Mike

P.S.: No, Suska, we leave the weaving to the bus in snow!!!
