The article referenced for the $15 figure actually says that while the inventor owed his friend $15 he actually sold his patent for $400 not $15. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.241.14.43 (talk) 00:39, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Wasn't it invented by the Egyptians? AllStarZ 02:42, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

The article says that the safety pin was "reinvented" in 2007 - what is meant by this? Safety pins are a well-known invention as of 2007. Typically reproduction of a common and well known device is not considered "reinvention." 207.161.180.52 (talk) 18:45, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

nappy pins[edit]

I remember from when I was a child a variant of the safety pin idea which my mum reffered to as a napppy pin. It was a large safety pin with an additional sliding mechanism added to the catch to consdeirablly reduce the chance of them coming undone accidently. Does this deserve a mention? Plugwash (talk) 01:55, 16 January 2008 (UTC) it means that they remodeled he old safety pin. does that help?!

Jewlery[edit]

Alot of times theyre used by punks or cheapskates(like me) to pierce ears(and other parts) and as the the actual jewlery. for proof just google "Saftey Pin Piercing" (P.S. I could upload a pic of my piercing)♠Д narchistPig♠ (talk) 05:28, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Some people charge over $400 for safety pins. What a rip off! If all safety pins were at that price, I would be broke. There is NO WAY I am buying that brand of paper clips! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Qtwiki45 (talkcontribs) 23:56, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
