Thumbtack is a destructive tool, which causes punctures of photo and paper, also, left several holes on the wall, when we use it. The research shows that traces and holes left can be found on the surface, witch cause bad effect on its outlook. Thumbtack is a sharp tool made of metal. There are often many threats to skin, hands and eyes that may get hurts, especially to children.
