The ad says the 14” is -$12 Off the 39.99, but when I put it in the order it is -$5. Which is it? I’d like to know before I order, hopefully today. Thank you!

Hi, Thanks for the call out! It's $-5 and the copy has been updated.
SandyLucas
Thank you! Ordered 2, a 24” and the 14”. Look forward to receiving them!
What does the (-12$) mean? Is it an $12 off the 36.99. When I put both in the cart is ended up being both the 23" and the 14" were both $36,99

Disregard, I answered my own question!
$8 is too high for shipping.
It would be nice if they would include a left-handed person in the demonstration video for cutting. I don't see how you can measure with a ruler and then cut with this slidelock ruler if you are left-handed. Can anyone help me on this one?

I'm a lefty too! Couldn't it be used by turning it around and holding it in your right hand? Or am I oversimplifying it?
was so excited to receive mine - I've been using one at work (at a LQS) ... but mine arrived cracked :( waiting to hear back on what to do about it ...
I would buy in a flash if there was a 24" with laser etched measurements like on their rulers. Any chance of seeing if they would make a custom order for MassDrop?

You don't need measurements on it. It's designed to be used as a holder. I use my ruler to measure, move the Slidelock against the ruler, push down, (move the ruler out of the way), then cut against the slidelock. Fantastic for cutting strips of WOF. Accurate cuts because it doesn't move.
My stuff usually slides around from the bottom. How does this help stop the slippage? (I know - complete moron, but I'm good with it if someone can please enlighten me.)

This ruler has little suction cups on the bottom & when you press down it grabs the fabric.
dottib
Not suction cups. It is well placed "knobs" of silicone that when you push down, it is held the entire length of the fabric. Trust me, I no longer have bad cuts for my binding strips. I have and use both sizes.
my package is coming today im excited cant wait to try.
I ordered one in each size but don't think I should have to pay shipping for two, they shouldn't require nearly $16.00 to be shipped but there is no way to order them except ONE at a time, at least not that I could see. Shipping costs often keeps me from ordering items and had I know this, I would have only ordered one.

I wish that was more clear or I had seen this option and saved myself money. It really takes the fun out of getting something when the shipping is so costly.
If you're the buying manager, you could have offered to ship them in one order as someone would clearly see the items were purchased at the SAME time and being shipped to the SAME address by the SAME person, but I guess that's water under the bridge now. Fortunately, I love the product but the shipping cost still bugs me.
I bought both sizes plus a ruler at a quilt show a few years back. I use all 3. Maybe someday I will see the ruler on here. I really like the lighted edge.

I agree, I bought all 3 at a quilt show but with kids my ruler ended up broken and would love to find a way to replace it.
This is a great idea and..... I wish it had measurements on it. As quilters we know we should not use the lines from our mats because the mats warp. Cutting more than 4 layers of fabric at a time isn't a good idea, regardless of the method for holding them down.
What are the shipping costs 8
Absolutely love this tool, the large one is a game changer for cutting WOF. Am anxiously waiting for the drop to come up again to buy one for my daughter -- so I can finally get mine back from her!
I purchased the 14 and 24" lighted. The color is a fluorescent yellow that you can clearly see everything through. The edges glow and it's great for lining up your ruler. I received it today and had to try it out. When you get ready to cut, it does not move!!! Fantastic product. If you don't have one I highly recommend.
Now that this drop is inactive, how do we find out what we paid for it?
Can anyone tell me if you can see clearly with the lightning edge or if most prefer the arctic blue?
The cost of shipping makes this not an excellent deal☹️

did you get the 14 or 24 in?
Pucca
24
I didn't see where you could get both, i did purchase one, is there a way i can get the second one added to the one i already purchased without a separate order?

On the order sheet,to the left.Below Quantity,order slidelock,choose an option
I got one in the last drop. If you have hand issues/neuropathy/weakness-spend the money. Get one. You will use it every time and you will be able to do more .
cherief
I always use it in my local quilt store and love it! Now I ordered two for my Birthday!
I need to withdraw from the drop. Please tell me how.
Jennifer1906
Go to "my transactions", click on the order, click on "edit order", and down at the bottom is an option to cancel it.
Jennifer1906
I just noticed you can withdraw just from the transaction page after clicking on the item.
I've had one of these for about four years. Bought it at the Houston Quilt Festival from the developer. It is fantastic, especially for cutting WOF strips, etc. Highly recommend!
A friend has one of these. Guess it was only time to add it to my toolbox.
Did I order this 14" Slidelock Ruler?
how do you order one of each without doing 2 separate orders?

My shipping came to $17.50 for 2, postage for one was $11. Hope that helps!
SoozeM
I did order one of each , thanks
How Much for the postage???? Wish you would post it for all to see......Don't want to JOIN the DROP without knowing the cost.....
AvaC1
Bought the set (24 and 14 inch) and postage was 8.95 for the set
ohcrolssman
The postage differs by location. But it is more cost effective to purchase both at once.
For anyone on the fence, this is the best tool Ive ever purchased!

I got the yellow one, the yellow is truely fluorescent and the markings and edges appear to "glow" in normal light. I'd highly recommend getting that one.
i haven't had any problems seeing the fabric beneath it either, you can clearly see through the yellow
Jerb
I totally agree, just this evening I shared with a quilting friend that this (24”, lighted) slidelock is the best purchase I've made all year . Going to buy the short one next time it's offered.
How much is postage?
Re. the video, not sure why she uses a second ruler for measuring the strips when the fabric is sitting on top of a gridded cutting mat. Just line up the Slidelock with the lines on your mat. Easy peasy!

Measure twice, cut once is one of my favorite sayings. :-)
LeapIntoTheWild
I think the most important thing is that you use the same cutting method all the way through a project. Even rulers from different manufacturers have different sized lines, and you could be off a little, which over several seams, can become a lot!
Best money I've ever spent for a tool for quilting. Always my go-to option for cutting fabric.
i bought both sizes. I use the larger size for cutting WOF and the smaller one for just about everything else. I was a skeptic at first, but now these are used almost every day.
