Just restocking my hooklength box. I went to put in some Middy 4" Las-Soo hooklengths and they were about half an inch too long for the 4" pegs, so they fall off when the lid is closed. Then tried a packet of Middy Band'Em hooklengths and they are the same. Measuring the actual hooklength and the line is 4", which means it comes out to 4 and a half to the bend in the hook. Measured Guru and the line is 3 and a half, so 4 inches to the bend in the hook. Looks like I'll be using them off the card.

Put the loop of the first hooklength over the peg, attach the loop of the second hooklength to the hook of the first, around the other peg and so on. When you get to the last hooklength a laccy band on the hook and over the peg.
