Security pushpins / Security pushpins

Security pushpins

n daily lives, people are easy to
be stabbed and wounded by a
thumbtack since the pin of it is
very sharp. In order to avoid this
situation and to make it more safe
to use a thumbtack, a telescopic
protection structure can be added
to the periphery of the thumbtack;
No matter one wants to store or
use thumbtacks, one's fingers
won't touch the pin of them thus
avoid being stabbed and wounded.
When using a thumbnail, one only
need to press the cap of it to nail
into.
