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. After much frustration trying to find excellent diaper pins, we had our own made for Green Mountain Diapers to our specifications. I am very happy with these pins. Sharp pins slide through fabric more easily than blunt pins. Lubricating pins by pushing the point into a bar of 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. They don't have fancy box packaging. These are sturdier and stronger than the cheaper 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 (which is pretty unlikely due to the low profitability of selling diapers pins compared to the very high cost of the testing and certification). We recommend choosing plastic-head pins such as these or our free pins and avoid painted metal for your safety and baby's safety.

They have slide-lock baby-safe heads. Always use a cover over diaper pins or other diaper fasteners. Made in Malaysia.

Instructions:

Slide-Lock Head means that the colored part on the head of the pin slides up to unlock the pin.  Pinch it back down to lock the pin after you close it.  You can't get it open until you pull up on the colored part of the pin head. Then once that is pulled up and you can see the little metal part that the arrow is pointing to, then you are able to open the pin.

Sometimes customers don't know that you have to slide the head up to open the pin and they can't get them open.   The pins aren't defective if you can't get it open if the head is not slide into the up.   The fact that grown-ups can't get the pins open when they don't know the the "trick" about needing to slide the pin head up shows that they really are secure!

Good for holding name tag on apron

I got these diaper pins to hold my (required) name tag on my apron. The usual strap and clip thing is no good for me because the tag gets caught on cardboard and lost. I have been using a pin for a week or two and it has not bent or opened.

Nice

These are nice but they don't really lock as good. I like the Dritz diaper pins better.
