A collection of items you may not have in your home tool box.
Hex Key or Allen Key?
4mm keys are almost exactly the same size as 5/32" which makes them the preferred size for products requiring self-assembly.
So no matter which one you have it will still do its job perfectly.
Our Hex key fits
- HoP Dragon Staff hubs.

Mattress or Curved Sewing Needle?
This is the needle we include in our DIY kits. Strong stainless steel needle with a smooth eye to prevent thread damage.
How do you use a curved needle?
Unlike a straight needle it is important to note that when pushing the curved needle through many layers of Kevlar® that you push in the direction of the curve entering the fabric. Failing to do so can bend the needle too much and cause it to break prematurely.
How can i get a better grip on a curved needle?
Thimbles are small rubber socks that fit over the end of your finger. They are available in many sizes from book stores and craft shops. Using one on the finger pushing the needle can help a lot. They are also used by people counting money, turning pages in books and flicking through paper records. Great for those that get dry finger tips and loose their grip.
