Procedure for Measuring Cross Stretch Cont'd

Leg: Close the scissors until the locking pin snaps to hold the scissors closed (figure 1). Place the sock on the cross stretch arms going through the top until the middle of the leg is across the arm fingers (figure 7). Push the locking pin and slowly release the scissor arms at a constant rate (figure 4). Remove your hand from one side of the scissors handles (figure 5). Take the reading from the rule when movement of the scissors stops (figure 8).
