High Five for the push pins!
My husband recently asked if I could find "aluminum push pins" with extra-long points...I was shopping in a local retail strip mall at the time and visited several chain office supply stores while there and could not find them. Returning to my car, I typed "aluminum push pins" into my smart phone and, lo and behold, the first entry was, you guessed it, The Container Store! Both standard length and extended length available, and I once again was thrilled. Love finding things that I'm looking for at The Container Store, great place!

clever use of pushpins!
My teenage daughter has tons of earrings! she was looking for a way to display them for a fun room decoration and for easy access. She came up with an awesome idea that all her friens are copying...she fixed a black cork board to her wall and adorned it with neat rows of Extra Long Aluminum Pushpins. She now has a great place to hang all of her "dangly" earrings. The extra long pin in these pushpins make the "hook" stable and able to handle the weight of the earring.
Now i have one happy teenage who is planning to take her design to her dorm room next year!
Thanks Container Store!

So many uses
I used all of my long-shank aluminum pushpins as hat hooks on my closet doors, so I needed to replace them. These are vital to have around, since they're so much sturdier than regular pushpins.

get these with the bulletboard strip
I have 2 packages of these and use them with the magnetic bulletboard to hold necklaces as a wall display, instead of getting them tangled in a drawer. I recommend the extra long; I can put 2 or 3 necklaces on each of these, and since they are longer, I don't worry about the weight pulling the pushpins out of the board. Love.
