    I have used one of these for years. It is wonderful to close safety pins when sandwiching a quilt. I use mine also if I am basting a quilt sandwich to help bring the long needly through.

    Yes, I have one. They are great! Need (if you are anything like me) to keep it where I can find it when I need it.

    I use the small screw driver that comes with my machine and it works just fine and is really easy on the fingers.

    A nut pick works great. Just have cut off the sharp end of the pick and grind it smooth.

    I also use a grapefruit spoon - the little ridges keep it from slipping.

    I found that a metal pick that comes with the nut crackers set works really well it has two grooves in the end that the pins set in it works great.

    Do you have one? What do you use to close pins?
    Have one - love it!

    I've used one for several years and it's great! I can use it with either hand.

    I've seen Eleanor Burns use them with pin clips across the top of the pin so it does'nt hurt your fingers.

    When I first started quilting about 3 years ago I saw this listed as one of the "must have" tools. Bought it ... I've used it once. IMO it's not a "must have".

    I've never seen this. I just pin and suffer. LOL. May have to check it out if the other responders seem to like it.
