This lighted seam ripper is perfect for ripping out stitches, cutting threads, and opening button holes. The bright light illuminates the area you’re working on with a simple slide of the easy on/off switch. It has a fine sharp blade with a safety ball to protect the fabric and a clear cap to protect it when not in use. Ridges along the top of the handle add grip for better control while you work. Before your first use, please open the battery cover and carefully remove the white tab.
