I love them! Actually, I’ve had a pair around for a long time, bought and sometimes used as a needle puller, which is one of the intended purposes for this common surgeon’s tool. I only recently learned about their additional role as great point-turners, thanks to Pam Erny, from the Creative Machine mailing list.

You could reinforce the pant front instead, but I think putting the tape on the pocketing makes the finished edge smoother.
