    Welcome to Snap Dragon Frames LLC.  We are pleased to offer you a selection of high quality products for your rugcrafting needs.  

     The Snap Dragon Frame tm was invented in 2005 by Stephen R. Schmidt Jr.   This fine hand-crafted frame gives you the leverage you need to achieve a tight hooking surface using only finger or hand strength.  It will, with a "snap" of the paddles, stretch your rug backing tight and hold it that way until you release the tension and remove the fabric.  The patented self-locking cam-activated system is simple and quick to operate, offering an ideal solution for rugcrafters with little hand strength, allowing them to both pull the backing tight and create even loop heights to produce a more uniform product.  The 17.125" x 14.625" frame leaves an ample 13.5" x 11" working are and can be mounted on several different leg and base assemblies so you can choose your preferred mode of hooking.  The Snap Dragon Frame tm is comfortable to use, well balanced and only weighs 5 to 7 lbs, depending on the model.

T-Leg B&S Frame

    The Snap Dragon Frame tm is made primarily of  poplar wood with cherry accents.  The parts are hand sanded and finished in several coats of clear lacquer to bring out the natural beauty of the wood.  The legs are made of lightweight but strong aluminum strapping, adding a silvery touch.  Great care has been taken to round and smooth all the surfaces that come in contact with the body.  The gripper strips are recessed in their poplar rails to reduce exposure to the needles, without reducing their effectiveness at "gripping" the fabric.  Should you wish to change styles, every frame head is designed to fit every leg and base set so that they may easily be converted.
