This is a replacement Shuttle Gib Hook for Ultrafeed®, Leatherwork®, Stitch Master® and Yachtsman Sewing Machines. Damage to the hook can cause skipped stitches, broken thread or tension inconsistency. If you are having these problems, you can replace your hook with this part.
A critical part of stitch formation inside your sewing machine, the gib hook picks up the thread loop formed by the needle on its upward swing. Sailrite’s patented Shuttle Gib Hook features a deeper scarf behind the hook point that reduces the potential for the needle to hit the hook if the needle bends entering the fabric or is pulled out of position when feeding heavy fabric assemblies.
This gib hook is more durable than typical shuttle hooks and takes wear and tear off the sewing machine and reduces sewing issues.

Keep sewing! There are two types of sewers: those that have had a needle strike, and those who will have a needle strike. Have this spare on hand and keep sewing!
Little burrs can mess up your sewing. worth replacing
Thank heaven "learning" isn't horribly expensive! ... and ships quickly!
When I did dumb things trying to force fabric through my Sailrite Ultrafeed machine, I damaged the Shuttle Gib Hook. Got the new one quickly, put it in place and "Voila!"... once again the LSZ-1 is running like a "sewing machine" cranking out my jobs! Thankfully, this was not a very expensive way to learn to do my work better than before!
My needle hit the original when attempting to sew through thick fabric and buggered it up. This resulting in thread breaking even though I tried filing it down. After replacement with the new one, I am back to sewing without thread issues. Most likely I should have several spares for when it occurs again.
Perfect delivery was on time and fast
