Just what I was looking for
These are the best push pins ever -- I needed some that were extra long for a craft project. Couldn't find any at the craft store and knew Container Store -- as always -- was the place to go. They worked perfectly -- the extra length makes them very versatile and the aluminum looks cool too -- much better than plastic.

I use these with the UmbraÂ® Magnetic Bulletboard Steel and they are sturdy enough to hold heavy pieces of jewelry or anything else you don't want moving.

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.

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!
