James Heal led the development of the SnagPod to solve the problem of testing for undesirable loops on the surface of garments, for which a suitable method did not exist.
With the support of prominent retails and test houses, we created a chamber which is octagonal in shape and incorporates four pinned snagging bars, which are inclined forwards in the direction of rotation. It tests for the appearance of indesirable loops on the surface of garments, and is ideal for testing woven spoerts fabrics such as football shirts.
The SnagPod design creates a gentler snagging test which provides consistent results more accurate to real life.
The snagging bars are laser marked with rotational direction, saving time by making the SnagPod easier to set up.
This method of snagging testing is useful for sportswear retailers, and has been adopted by Nike and their suppliers.
