Add an Extra 2 1/2" to Any Acrylic Ruler
Plus 2 1/2" Add-On
for Acrylic Quilt Rulers
The Alignment Tabs make it easy to attach the Plus 2 1/2" Add-On right up to the edge of the ruler without any gap.
Slide the Ruler Extensions over the ruler until the Alignment Tabs butt up against the ruler's edge. Then press down on the Suction Cups.
Attach the Add-On to wider rulers like a 12 1/2" square to cut strips up to 15" wide.
Line two Add-Ons up on the 24" Ruler to cut wider strips from the full width of fabric.
If You Need the Suction Cups to Hold Longer, Get Them Wet
If the surface of your ruler is clean & free from scratches
Suction cups work by creating a vacuum when you press them down. They will stay attached until air leaks in.
That's why you want to make sure your ruler is clean and free of scratches so it can create a tight seal.
If you put a drop of water on them, the water will keep air from leaking in until it completely evaporates. With a drop of water on them they can hold for several several days or even beyond a week.
