Nifty Tool Thing

I bought this thing at the Sewing Show at Pheasant Run last Fall. I didn't know why I needed it - it just looked interesting. Well, the first time my embroidery machine got 'stuck' and there was a 'birds nest' of thread under the hoop, I knew just which tool to reach for!

It is very thin, and slides under the hoop with no problem. You can then cut through the thread mess and remove the hoop.

Now, if someone can tell be why my thread 'shreds' going through the upper tension, some times, I'd really like to know. It's usually the dark thread, and I've heard that it has more dye on it and is, therefore, thicker. Can't think of anything else. These machines are finicky.
