We’ve redesigned the Posi-Pin® (Patent #7438009) to make it perform more consistently in your Sailrite® sewing machine. This new composite model consistently breaks at the shear point when mishaps cause the machine to lock up (e.g. needle hitting the needle plate or any internal metal component, or sewing through a metal snap or zipper) which can cause machine timing to slip and impact proper stitching operation. The previous metal Posi-Pin did not consistently break at the shear point during such collisions, resulting in time-consuming tuning and retiming by the user to make the machine operational again. With this new Posi-Pin, all you have to do is remove the broken one and replace it with another. Check the cap spring for damage, change the needle and get back to sewing. It greatly reduces the need for tuning or timing, which gets you back to sewing faster than ever before.


  • Composite material breaks as intended at the shear point.
  • Shear point protects machine from potential internal damage and timing issues.
  • Easy to remove and replace with new one.
  • Reduced machine tuning or retiming required.

I like the metal pin better. However, they do exactly what they are supposed to do and protect the machine. I have broken multiples of these and have protected my machine from damage thus far. If you are planning on pushing the limits of what your machine is capable of doing I would drop this in and then go for it! When it breaks it leaves the plastic tip in the hole and you will have to remove it manually because it will not push through to the other side when installing a new pin. Very easy to use!

Why Take A Chance.

Best thing since sliced bread. A friend gave me two to trie. I started a new project with really thick leather and broke one. I don’t know if it would caused damage with metal pin but all I did was put another in and ordered 10 more just in case.
