The Lock Pop is both a versatile stand alone fiber preparation tool and a great tool to pop open a lock before carding or combing. By popping a lock up and down a few times on the teeth, then pulling it through the teeth of the Lock Pop, the lock will often be spinnable as is, and will be ready for hand cards, a drum carder, blending board, hackle, or combs. Each Lock Pop comes with Free Shipping in the U.S.
Perhaps the best way to think of the Lock Pop is as an inverted flicker. It has the same curve as a flicker, but a much wider base to work with, taller and stronger teeth, and it clamps in place on the edge of a table or workbench. Rather than tapping and flicking with a flicker or hand card, tap and flick the lock against and then through the teeth of the Lock Pop. We have found the Lock Pop to be much more ergonomic and efficient than flicking.
The Lock Pop measures 6-3/8″ wide, 3-1/8″ deep, and 2-1/2″ tall. It uses a 72 TPI carding cloth. The included clamp can attach to a table or workbench from 3/4″ to 4″ in thickness.
