Summary

Stainless steel clothes pins that come with a life-time guarantee.

Patented Extreme Pins are designed and handcrafted in Italy from top-grade Stainless Steel. They can survive frost, snow, sleet, hail, wind, heat, drought and just about anything else. They are freezer safe and will not rust, fade, rot or stain (try that with wooden or plastic pins). Their uses extend far beyond just hanging clothes (although they are excellent at that with their ability to secure thick, oversized comforters); they make great bag, hair, paper, cable, sock, glove and target clips. Extreme Pins are also wonderful for bookmarks and holding those pesky pages of sheet music. For the handyman the pins are useful for many applications with clamping needs. When gripping strength is vital these pins are herculean. It's a must have for several chores for the farmer as well. Clipping feed and grain bags closed to keep vermin out and pinning cheesecloth to buckets for straining fresh milk are just a few utilizations. By purchasing Extreme Pins you are not only being GREEN by reducing landfill mass but also saving money as they are a lifetime purchase. Keep more money in YOUR pocket by using Extreme Pins on an outdoor clothes line as you can decrease your electric bill (no more dryer!) while increasing your Vitamin D intake (and get a nice tan as well).

I give these clothespins 10 out of 10 acorns. These are fantastic! I've had mine for over a year and a half, and the paint has not chipped and they work just as well as when I got them. Not one of them has gotten broken, either!

These work great, too! I love how they have a little holes on the "handles" so that you can put a wire hanger through a hole and hang your shirt on the hanger. This saves a LOT of space on the clothesline, and it also makes doing laundry much easier. Instead of having to pin the shirt to the line, take it off the line, put it on a hanger, and hang it up. With these clothespins, I can hang my shirt on the hanger, and then bring it directly inside and hang it in the closet. It's wonderful!

These are also really heavy-duty. I can hang up heavy pairs of pants with these, without having to worry about them falling off the line. Just three of them will hold a quilt or soaked towel to the line. I've never had one fall off the line, or drop my clothes. Granted, I don't get much wind, but still, that's pretty impressive!

Pro-tip: No matter how pretty the green clothespins are, don't get them if your clothesline is over greenery. I've lost a few of mine to the grass! The second ones I got, I went for orange. They are so much easier to find if they drop into the grass!

In this picture (from amazon) you can see the little holes on the clothespins, as well as how nice and bright and easy to find the orange clothespins are, while still being a nice orange color. I don't particularly care for neon oranges--this is a nice orange!

I love how easy the orange hangers are to spot--the green one in the picture sure blends in!
