    I use mine every time I pin baste my quilt. I'm right handed so I hold it in my left hand, slip the pin through the sandwiched quilt so the end of pin slides right over the tool (which you hold flat to the fabric) and just push the pin top down,....click, it's closed. Save a lot of time and pricked/tired fingers.

    I agree with those who say they can't pin a quilt without it. My nails are very brittle and never could stand up to the trauma of pinning. One of the Must Have tools as far as I'm concerned

    With my arthritis, I wouldn't be able to close the safety pins. With this miracle tool, it's no problemo! I keep it in the tin with my pins.

    BTW - I keep a package of dessicant in the tin with my pins for basting. It's that pouch of stuff that comes in boxes with your shoes, in purses or anything else they don't want to get mouldy. It keeps the pins from rusting.

    The Kwik Klip works great! I keep it in my sewing basket. I also use the Purple Thingy - it helps with closing the pins too. Sure does save your fingers.

    I love mine. I have only been quilting a little over a year, and it is the best thing I have found that helps me survive the sandwiching process! I can use it with either hand, I didn't realize it was supposed to go in the not dominant hand. May have to see if leaving it in one hand makes the process go faster. It is pretty speedy already!

    The purple thingy is tough and so user friendly. The size of it is great!

    I love mine and use it often. I keep it in a tall candy tin on my sewing table which holds markers, pencils, pens of many sorts and whatever else falls in there.

    I bought a few small packages of the curved safety pins... pinned a lap quilt and boy what a pain that was. (My finger were like a pin cushion) I got one of these handy helpers. I love it.

    I don't pin that much anymore since I found 505 basting spray, but when I did pin, I used this tool. It takes a little bit to get used to it, but it is worth it. I hate hand pain, and this helped a lot.

    I love the Kwik Klip. Two other notions I love is the Stiletto and Jaws, Jaws hold your rolled up quilt while you are FMQ available at Quilt in a Day.

    I have one and LOVE it. I'd split my fingernails if I didn't use one.

    I use a teaspoon but after reading the responses here I like the crochet hook. That gives the v of the hood the space for the pin and it doesn't slip. Tried to get the gals at my quilt meeting to use the teaspoon but they thought that was useless and continued on with their fingers. Sore fingers. I pity them, grin. Ho Hum!
