    I have one and hardly ever use it. I find it more difficult to use then just using my fingers.

    I have used a grapefruit spoon, an old empty (& cleaned) fountainhead pen, a wooden press stick with a notch in it, and whatever else was handy at the time. I have never used a crochet hook, but I love that idea ... and I have several!! thanks for the idea!!

    Do you have one? What do you use to close pins?
    I have 3 and I use them constantly! You open AND close the pins with it and it sure saves your fingers.

    Just another gadget for me to have to hunt for. I use a teaspoon. I always know where they are.LOL grapefruit spoon works even better than a plain teaspoon.

    I have one and use it whenever I need to open or close a bunch of safety pins. It's one of those "Why didn't I think of this?" kind of things. If you use safety pins to hold your quilt together, I don't know why you wouldn't use one. I keep mine in the same covered box my pins are in, which is a Rubbermaid sandwich box.

    I bought mine years ago and love it. I use it to close and open the pins. It's wonderful as it can hurt your fingers when closing and opening those pins. Sure is a time saver also. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay

    I have two because my kids lost the first one for me and this is one tool I won't be without while basting. So I got another one and found the old one a couple of months later. Go figure!

    I've used my Kwik klip for years. Makes it easy to remove pins when hand-quilting on a frame.

    I have that and the pinmoors. I wouldn't work without them. It makes everything so much easier.

    I have one! Got it from Joann's using a coupon - good price for it. It takes a little practice to get it to work, but it certainly is worth it if you have any problems closing the pins. Saves fingers and nails and is a big help for those who simply have the problem of closing the pins!

    I had a Quick Klip, but have no idea what happened to it after 6 or so moves.:( I use a grapefruit spoon. The little ridges keep it from slipping on the pins.
