Ensures consistent quality socks
Relies entirely on gravitational force, not affected by variations in the air pressure or
electricity variations. Gives consistent lateral readings throughout the world
No training is required
Calibrated and tested
Robust precision engineered
Stand alone and completely portable
Take the tester to the knitting machines for on-the-spot control
Sock industries standard test equipment
Used by major sock manufacturers
adidas, Lacoste, Next and Marks & Spencer

Easy to read combined scale
Method of operation
Place the sock into the lateral stretch arms via the open end (welt/rib) at any desired point along the length of the sock.
The weight release handle is operated and gravity acts upon the weight to give a uniform stretch loading on that particular section of the sock, the amount of stretch is read off the scale on the vertical shaft in line with the pointer.
Easy to read combined scale when testing
the stretch of the -
Adult sock - use the A reading
Baby sock - use the B reading
For safety reasons we reccomend that the machine is fastened to a
bench or trolley using the 2 holes in the base.
