An infusion needle attachment which, although covering the infusion needle protruding from below, so as to effectively and desirably mask it from view at the injection site, is nevertheless also effectively used to guide the unseen needle into position, since a flap finger grip thereof is in the same plane as the needle and the user is thereby readily able to judge the desired location at which the point of the needle should make physical contact preparatory to the subcutaneous administration of a medicament to a patient using said needle.
