Help with Knit Pro interchangeable circular needles

I'm just getting into circular knitting and loving it. At the moment I'm just using the fixed needles but have bought a starter kit from Knit Pro.

I find that if I'm not careful the cables undo and my stitches end up in a pile on my knee!

In the kit there are Cable Keys?? I dont see how to use them, am I missing something?

Thanks, Jan

There should be, but you can straighten out a paperclip and use that to tighten them with.

They are in the bag with the purple caps if I recall correctly. Another thing to do in addition to the tightening key is to use something grippy to hold the needle and tighten it. I use a small piece of grip shelf liner. Like this-

Thanks for your help. I was expecting something technical and all you do is use the key to tighten the screw. I really like this site, everyone explains things so well.


Like the idea of the shelf liner too as my hands dont grip all that well. Thanks
