This is a replacement Retaining Ring Cap Spring for Sailrite® Ultrafeed®, Leatherwork®, Stitch Master® and Yachtsman Sewing Machines.
The retaining ring cap spring is a plate that runs across the top of the shuttle retainer ring in your Ultrafeed, Leatherwork, Stitch Master or Yachtsman Sewing Machine. This piece is needed for the machine to properly sew in reverse. From time to time, if sewing with a bent needle, the needle can hit the edge of the opening on the retaining ring cap spring, causing a burr. These burrs can create skipped stitches and broken threads, especially when sewing in reverse. The burrs can often be smoothed up to continue sewing, but we recommend having spare retaining ring cap springs in your sewing kit in case of serious damage. Luckily, these parts are affordable and easy to replace—they secure with two small screws.

How to Replace Retaining Ring Cap Spring on Ultrafeed Sewing Machine
Always great to have a replacement cap spring handy so that your sewing projects can continue smoothly.
Always upgrade your cap spring
My old one was a little battered & had taken few too many needle strikes from the previous owner. Perfect fit.
Was time to change this part on my machine
Fits my machine perfectly.
Repairing my inexperience ....
Who knew that a tiny nick on this part (due to my inexperience...) could cause such terrible problems with the thread getting shredded in the stitching process. I must not be the only one who has replaced this part, because the VERY helpful customer service lady --yes, she was a lady, not just a "person" -- identified my problem quickly and guided me through the process to determine this was the cause and give me a couple of options to remedy the situation. The replacement part was easy to install. Coupled with the new Shuttle Gib Hook (same dumb inexperience on my part), my machine went from frustrating disaster to a humming "sewing machine" getting the job done! I'm learning .....
