Safety Thumbtack / thumbtack

Safety Thumbtack

It's difficult to carry or access a pile of thumbtacks directly with the possibility of pricking your hands. However, when they are connected by a soft material which curls and rips easily, the inconvenience can be effectively avoided, which makes the pins as a whole small-sized and easy to take with. The recyclable thumbtacks can also be fixed on those materials.
