Safe Nail / Pushpin

Discipline: Professional Concept

Pushpins are a common everyday object, but they have some drawbacks, such as damaging fingernails when removing them or causing puncture wounds if dropped on the floor. The Safe Nail is an upgrade to the traditional pushpin through the use of silica gel with a press dome. The soft silicone material is skin-friendly. When slightly pressed, the internal press dome will curl up, leaving enough space for pushpin removal. In addition, if a Safe Nail falls on the floor, it lies at a safe angle with the ground instead of an upright position that could cause a puncture wound.
