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 220.127.116.11 (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." 18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:45, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
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?

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 (talk • contribs) 23:56, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
