15 Surprising Uses for Safety Pins

  • 2 of 4

 

Great Ways to Use Safety Pins.

1. Keep Your Bag Safe From Thieves. Safety pin your zippers onto the fabric on bags and backpacks — it’s just one more hassle for pickpockets to go through to get to your belongings. Trust me, every extra second is important!

2. Keep Your File Cabinet Nice and Tidy. Is there one huge, bulging hanging file in your file cabinet? Save space with a safety pin. See the photo here for a clearer explanation.

3. Keep Pairs of Socks and Gloves Together. Genius, isn’t it?  Never lose another sock again!

I should buy safety pins for regular use and for my survival kit (it's a duffle bag full of items that would come in handy in case of an emergency/disaster/apocalypse).
