    Connie, it may be the pins you are using, too - I find some are made out of stiffer metal than others. When I get dollar-store paper clips and safety pins, I think of them as disposable items. Since these will be used again and again, you want the best pin possible.

    They go on your basting safety pins. It helps your fingers since theres more to hold onto than just the wire. Then if you get the Kwik Klip (wood handle with a metal piece sticking out the top), it helps you to fasten/unfasten the pins. All helping to save your fingers.

    I have them and love them. They fit on the bent pins. I bought the clips at Joanns with a coupon for 40% off the regular price of $11 somthing.
    They work very well and sure save you fingers.

    I have them also and I love them, I sat one afternoon with a pair of needle-nose pliers and the bent pins and had them done in no time. They make the pins easier to handle and they don't get all tangled up. I spent more time untangling the pins, before I got these, than I did pinning a quilt.
