Sewing Machine Parts and Accessories

Adaptors

An adaptor allows a user to interchange various types of feet without using a screw driver to remove the foot presently on the machine. It makes changing feet easier. It also allows non-brand feet to be used on any brand machine.
There are several varieties of adaptors. To determine which to use, one would need to know the size or description of the feet each individual machine would use.
For Example:

  • Short Shank
  • High Shank
  • Slant Shank
  • Superhigh Shank and Application
This information can be found in the customer instruction book. If no book is available, email us or call 800-544-5858.
Adaptors may also be called shanks or ankles. Instead of an adaptor, you might want to use shanks permanently attached to each individual foot.
For example:
  • straight stitch foot (hinged)
  • zig zag foot (hinged)
  • Straight stitch foot (Solid)
  • Zig zag foot (solid)
