brother Electronic Pin Protector - Insert this little cable extender into the 8 pin port on a Brother Electronic knitting machine that accepts a Designaknit cable. This extension is permanently left attached to the knitting machine.
The other end of the Pin Protector is now the new safer place to plug and unplug the DesignaKnit Cable. This will prevent accidental damage like a bent pin or loosening the 8 pin connector from the circuit board inside your knitting machine.
You won't have to worry about getting parts to make a repair and there won't be a chance of shipping damages to ship the machine for the repair. It's a great little insurance policy.
