Built-in flexible handle
Use the Same Comfortable Open Hand Position for Lifting, Moving & Cutting
Before attaching it on your ruler, slip one or more fingers under the handle.
Then you can put your hand in the same position on your ruler that you normally use when cutting.
Press down on the suction cups and then you can lift your ruler, line it up and make little adjustments without having to move your hand.
If you have Grip Strips on your rulers and templates, you won't even have to move your hand as you cut.

1) Line the edges up by eye or butt them up against something straight like another ruler, the edge of your cutting mat or a wall.
Check out the Quilt Ruler Connector to connect rulers that are the same width.
2) Attach the connector with two suction cups on each ruler.
3) Be sure and hold the rulers right where they’re connected when cutting or marking along the connected edges.
4) To take them apart, hold one ruler in place, and lift the other ruler up & away until the suction cups release.
Binding Your Quilt is So Much Easier If It's Perfectly Square
The secret to a quilt that lays or hangs perfectly flat is
to make sure your top is perfectly square with precise 90º corners.
But with a single ruler, you can only check a small portion at a time.
With one Multi-Width Connector, you can connect a square & a rectangle to square up a much larger portion of your quilt top than with a single ruler alone.
With two Multi-Width Connectors, you can connect a square & two rectangles to make sure your entire quilt top is perfectly straight and corners are exactly 90º.
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 days.
