Our Clothespins Are
Not ChildproofWe have discovered that young children are attracted to our clothespins. But instead of squeezing the handles together, they like to pull them apart. Our clothespins will resist being pulled apart better than most any other clothespin, but they will, nevertheless, come apart if the two halves are pulled hard enough.
Our Clothespins Are Not
Impervious To The Elements
Our Clothespins MayAll torsion-spring clothespins have a tendency to sometimes close with a “side-bite,” like you can see with the old clothespins pictured above. This has been the case since torsion-spring clothespins were invented back in 1887. Our Classic American clothespins have this same tendency; sometimes the jaws close just-right, and sometimes they close a bit askew.
