Does anyone have any idea who invented the sprung wooden clothes peg? I know someone who claims that their ancestor invented it but I can't find any information about this.
- I propose changing the article's name from "Clothes-pin" to "Clothes-peg". Does anyone have any reason to object? EuroSong talk 14:49, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
- Support. WP:COMMONALITY is a more relevant guideline than the previously mentioned WP:ENGVAR. --Tysonclugg (talk) 14:03, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
Give yourselves a pat on the back!
I find the idea of clothes pegs fascinating. Utterly marvellous page. I am the chairman of the clothes peg appreciation society. Thumbs up to anyone who has worked on this page, it should be highly commended. The wealth of knollwedge on the topic of the clothespin is remarkle... well done!
Removal of "Other uses" ?
That section is rather meaningless, and could best be conserved otherwise, which I'm sure it is. /Mats Henricson, 2009-08-25 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 12:07, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
I believe that these "other uses" are the principal reasons for celebrating the clothespin; and that, far from being removed, this section should be expanded so as to celebrate the adaptability of Moore's deceptively simple invention. (The applications may individually be 'mundane', but they are varied and valuable)
I also think it worthwhile to include adaptations that are sold for other purposes: clipboards and closures for plastic storage bags come to mind immediately, but I am sure that there are more. I sometimes find that the original clothepeg is more practical for these applications than the commercial derivative. My kitchen drawer is never without them, even though I no longer hang my washing out.
Returning to a few alternative uses for clothespins that are not already mentioned):
Holding papers together (often more appropriate than bulldog clips) Holding items while glue sets (it is not only luthiers who use it for this purpose) In the historic darkroom, a wire would be threaded through the centre of the spiral spring, and the clip used to hold celuloid and papers whoe they dried (similar to the original purpose, but the paper didn't need to be bent over) Holding music to stands for outdoor use Ditto drawing paper to the backing board (ever tried water-colour sketching in the wind)? Perhaps less obviously, as a mute for stringed instruments: it can be more convenient than the traditional wooden clip, as it can rapidly be clipped to the music stand when not in use as a mute PhysicistQuery (talk) 23:37, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

second part of design
ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 includes both JA and JM for Jamaica: If I read that correctly, JM has been the Officially assigned code element for Jamaica since 1974. JA is listed as an Indeterminate reservation, noting that, "Indeterminately reserved code elements are codes used to designate road vehicles under the 1949 and 1968 United Nations Conventions on Road Traffic but differing from those contained in ISO 3166-1. These code elements are expected eventually to be either eliminated or replaced ... . In the meantime, the ISO 3166/MA has reserved such code elements for an indeterminate period. ... Moreover, these codes may be reassigned by the ISO 3166/MA at any time."
