    I currently use a nappylocs tool but it is now too small and I need to find something else to use that is less expensive. Does anyone use a tool other than a bobby pin that is just as easy to use as the nappylocs tool.

    I have been using a latch-hook tool someone here suggested. Works perfectly! You can find one at any major fabric/craft store. Try Michael's, Hobby Lobby or JoAnn Fabric. Happy Journey.

    I've used a paper clip before. Works ok, but not very sturdy. I think fingers work just as well, if you have sufficient new growth.

    I just latched (for the first time) and I used a hair pin. Worked pretty well for me.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. i am considering the yarn needle if I can find one with a hole bigger than the opening of my nappylocs tool. I actually had a little pack of yarn needles already but its too small so i'm faced with the same problem.
