Amazon lists them right now so perhaps if you love them, you may be able to still get some.

I use zippers and safety pins on my longarm and use the Kwik Klip all the time. It's a real time and finger saver. I'll have to carefully store mine now as I won't be able to replace it.

BTW- I just checked Amazon and they now list it as unavailable.

They are available. Quilt in a Day has them as of this morning. And most quilt shops still have them.

That is sad that they cannot keep manufacturing them....I have a Kwik Klip my Mom bought me many years ago....and every time I use it, I think of her. It is very sturdy and will probably outlive me....I haven't used the pin covers so won't miss them.... just sad that another business is not able to keep afloat. (I did not read the article about it closing just replying to the messages here)

I've always used my seam ripper tip when I wanted to close basting pins. I never saw the need to buy the Kwik Klip.

If you have't tried one then do yourself a favor and please do. It's tool worth having.

I would agree that there are things that can be used to do the job that Kwik Klip does so well, but for me, it's the pin covers that are irreplaceable.

I've tried to use the Kwik Klip on pins w/o the covers, and there's just no comparison. So much easier and faster with the covers. Also, I love to see my quilt covered in all those pretty rainbow colored bits when I'm done basting it!

My granddaughter used the pins with covers to make all her elementary 100 day shirts for school. She filled in a shape (big heart, a tree, a decorated cake, etc each year) with the different colored covered pins. I still have a shoe box bin full of them.

Oh no...my bad! My cousin was quite a quilter, has dementia, and deteriorated very rapidly. I was give a bunch of her tools, notions etc. She had a lot of the pin clips in one box, and the tools in another. I had no idea what they were. Might have tossed them! Will need to go back through her things again to see if I kept them. I'm a pinner, so why did I not know what they were?!!
