I really do love to pin! Nothing beats the custom-fit and comfort of a pinned prefold or flat diaper. A pinned diaper is so classic, comfortable and adorable. Sharp pins slide through fabric more easily than blunt pins. Even in the same package, there are some variances in the sharpness of the points so it is good to have a few packages of pins on hand in case a random pin isn't quite as sharp as others. This is true with all brands of pins, from the cheap ones through to these top of the line Dritz pins, in our experience. Some are just better than others, even though they will all work ok. Lubricating pins by pushing the point into a bar of Ivory or other soap before using helps any pin slide, so do lubricate your pins. The stainless steel part of the pin needs to be sturdy enough not to bend when you slide them through fabric. These pins are both sharp and firm and without burrs. Good pins do make pinning a little easier. These are sturdier and stronger than the free pins. Do not buy painted metal head pins unless the seller can show you that they have been tested for lead paint and can show you the CPSIA compliance certification of their current stock of pins or just avoid painted metal for your safety and baby's safety.
The 4-packs of light blue and light pink are open stock without packaging. The other colors are in packaging as pictured. They have slide-lock baby-safe heads. Always use a cover over diaper pins or other diaper fasteners. Made in Malaysia.

I bought these to attach cloth pads (cloth-eez doublers) to my underwear to keep them in place and make sure they don’t stick to me and end up in the toilet. They’re very sharp and go through the pads easily. I like that they are guaranteed not to open and poke me. I forget they’re there most of the time.
