It’s Tool Review Tuesday! This is where we choose a tool, do some rigorous product testing, and produce a review that gives you the nitty-gritty details needed before you add something to your cart.
What is this tool typically used for?
No more hot fingers! This is the perfect tool for pressing and sewing! Use the curved end to hold fabrics while you sew, and the rubber grip end when you are pressing. It’s also a great tool to use with a hot glue gun.
What was your first impression of the Hold It Precision Stiletto?
I liked the curved aspect to the stiletto end and the rubber end for ironing. I also use the curved end to poke out corners when I turn a project.

I use it mainly as a stiletto. I love it! Because the end is curved with a point it is a lot easier to use than other stilettos.

Figured it out on my first try.
What did you like best?
The curved end makes getting the right grip on your fabric a breeze.
