The D-splicer is available as a single needle with a fixed handle and comes in 4 sizes. The needles can not be replaced.
|Needle φ||Rope φ in mm||Rope φ in inches|
|F10||1 mm||0-2 mm||0- 5/64|

Rope sizes are approximate as the needles work in many other situations. For example use it to pull the cover of a 14 mm rope back in itself.
