Rust-resistant stainless steel with a traditional diaper pin locking head. Basic starter pins to give pinning a try. Always use a cover over pins and other diaper fasteners. These are simple yet effective diaper pins made in China. Never let pins go through the wash.
Lubricating pins by pushing the point into a bar of gentle bar soap before using helps any pin slide, so do lubricate your pins! Keeping the bar of soap in its paper wrapper will keep things neat.
I had always been afraid of using pins. For 2 kids now I’ve used snappis to hold the diaper closed. I bought these with the intention of using them to pin my flats shut after I folded them. But as the snappi got harder to pull the diaper closed I decided to give these a try. I mean I had them already. I am proud to say I have only poked myself once and have never poked baby. The bright orange makes them easy to spot, the stay closed without any spontaneous opening. I’m very happy with these pins. My mom chuckled when she saw me using pins, flats and wool for my night time set up but took her laugh back when there was no morning leaking.
Was using a snappi. Finally got the guts to try these. So much better. No more bunching. Diapers lie flat. Much better fit.
I use these pins specifically with my luxury stretchy flats (that wont hold a snappi) because they are slim and sharp and I don't worry about them damaging the fabric. So, for that I love them and I even occasionally use them with the muslin flats as well if I don't have a snappi available. However, I feel like they are a bit insubstantial for something thicker like a prefold
I bought 2 pairs of these to keep in my diaper bag. I like them but they seem a little short compared to some of the others I have. They work great though and you can't beat the price.
I got my first pair of pins free with my first GMD order, and I've yet to find a pin that I like more. I just bought several more sets in different colors. They're sharp and go through cloth easily, and they stay sharp with repeated use. The locking mechanism feels very secure and is easy to use one-handed. They work so well!
