Yoyo stoppers

Fri Mar 08, 2019 8:17 pm

Any idea where I can buy a pair in the UK? The closest I can find are from level one in Germany.

Here are a couple of threads with pics of different arrangements, I prefer the little APA/mini zip-tie fitting version that clamps over the leading edge dacron, always worked well for me.

Cable ties work -melt a hole in the Dacron with a hot skewer and wrap a cable tie in place !

Have had these on a dot matrix for ages ...
