Sailrite® 1-1/4" Swing-Away Binder
Quickly and easily add a professional, finished edge to your sewing projects with a Sailrite® 1-1/4" Swing-Away Binder attachment for your sewing machine. This binder automatically guides and folds binding tape into place over the edge of the fabric as you sew. Our 1-1/4-inch binder was specially designed with a wider jaw to easily accommodate thicker canvas assemblies and marine flooring (material that can compress to roughly 5mm). The swing bracket does not need to be removed after use, just swing the binder out of the way. Skip hemming and easily finish the edges of marine flooring, snap-in mats, awnings, dodgers, biminis and more with binding tape and this 1-1/4" Swing-Away Binder.
Sailrite’s Swing-Away Binder is a high-quality design manufactured in Japan. The binding feeds smoothly and folds evenly, even at sewn splices in the binding tape. This swing binder features an exclusive stop screw, which prevents the binder from jumping over its frame and being pulled into the needle when sewing heavy items. This “stop” is a must when using a powerful walking foot sewing machine.
This binder attachment can be used with 1-1/4-inch binding tape including Sunbrella® Acrylic Binding and Polyester Carpet Binding.
Two, 6-40 screws for attaching the binder to a sewing machine are included. This binder attachment is for home and commercial use. To confirm this binder attachment will work on your machine, make sure there are two holes in the bed of the machine to the right of the needle plate.

Received in a timely manner and makes doing the binding SO easy!
Genius binding tool
by R. Jones -
This is a great item, which I plan to use for binding quilts. None of the 'home machine' binders work as well as this one... and the way that it allows one to backstitch is genius.
A Must Have
by Rob -
It's easy to be hard, but it's hard to be smart is a saying in the Marines refering to people who like to take the hard route just for the sake of it being "hard". If you like being miserable than this swing away binder isn"t for you. I received the 1" with my machine when I purchased it. I immediately started using it to trim the backpacks and go bags I was making out of ballistic nylon. Then my buddy brought over carpet and some 1 1/4 binding. Reality set in that binding the edges isn't as fun when you free hand it. I bought this 1 1/4" swing away so we can knock down all the future carpets. Way easier and cant be beat for straight aways. And gentle rounded corners. I definitely recommend using some scrap and test driving it before doing your $300 a yard carpet but ultimately it is super easy to use...now about those inside corners.... watch the sailrite videos, they show you what you need to do :) These things are pricey but I am sure I will eventually own all of the sizes. Best of luck!
