This special Boss and Slide Unit can be fitted to the Practical Twister in place of the standard collar to allow rapid twisting – a feature of particular importance if having to make repeated twists. The slotted collar also allows twists to be inserted in a length of flat strip which has scrolls already formed at each end.
