It was very good to find these old-fashioned pins that have the metal slide up cover. Even though I plan to use boingos or a snappi on the prefolds I like the idea of having a few pins around for back up in case those suddenly wear out/break.
Plus, they can be used for many things, are very tough and help to boost my total when I am just short of free shipping.

On a visit to Wisconsin, I decided to look online for some double-headed nappy pins. The best buy was with Nicki's, which turned out to be not very far from where I was staying, so they arrived very quickly. I had originally bought this type of pin for my babies at a Mexico City department store 40 years ago. Never a sprung pin or a prick! I soon discovered that they were great for holding your skirt together if the zipper broke, or putting pairs of socks together for the washer. But then they stopped importing them, so I was really glad to find some again: far superior to the plastic kind. My only disappointment was that the shape was straight instead of rocker-shape, and perhaps the point not quite as sharp as the single pin I have been able to hold on to. But in any case, I'm glad I bought 20 of them. No regrets.

best pins I have tried
I have tried several different brands of pins. I have come to the conclusion these are the best of the best. I do much prefer the metal head pins over the plastic ones. Even the dritz plastic head pins.

I use these to fasten homemade pocket diapers (rita's rump covers) They're a great price, easy for the parent to open, totally child proof, and wear like iron. Metal heads to not break like some plastic headed pins.
