Rubber Bands Versus Pop Tops

In the eternal question, Rubber Bands Versus Pop Tops, Kreink comes firmly down on the side of pop tops!  So do as they suggest and protect your metal threads from contact with rubber.

By the way, I was terribly embarrassed decades ago to realize that the reason I couldn't get the thread to come off the Kreinik spool is that I didn't know the top came up!  Pretty funny now.  Many thanks to the kind folks at the ANG email list who enlightened me as to the reason and solution.

As Kreinik says, "Safe and Sane Storage Forever!"

LOL, Jane! Reminds me of how I found out about the Kreinik pop-top. I was wrestling with the thread and yanked the end pretty hard when the top popped up! Fortunately, I was alone & no one saw my little episode. Let's just say the Anger Management classes weren't working way back then - hee hee!

I am willing to bet those pop up tops on Kreinik metallic spools have dumbfounded more than just us two!
