How To Make Sure Your Enamel Pins Stay Put

Enamel pins are not just accessories; they're a form of self-expression, and it can be disheartening when they don't stay securely in place. To ensure your cherished enamel pins stay put and don't fall off, consider these handy tips! 

Mind the Fabric Type

Different fabrics may interact differently with pin backs. Fabrics with a looser weave or delicate materials may be prone to snagging! It's important to be mindful of the fabric type when pinning your enamel pins. If you're wearing an item made of delicate fabric, it's a good idea to use a backing material such as felt or a small fabric patch. This will provide extra support and help prevent any potential damage!

Rotate Your Pin Collection

If you have a large collection of enamel pins, it's a good idea to switch up the pins you wear on a regular basis. Wearing the same pins in the same spots over and over can cause them to wear out faster. By rotating your pins, you spread out the wear and tear and prevent strain on specific areas.


Inspect Pin Backs Regularly

Make it a habit to inspect the condition of your pin backs regularly. Check for any signs of wear, damage, or loosening. If you notice any issues, replace the pin backs ASAP to maintain the security of your enamel pins!

Be Mindful of High-Friction Areas

Certain parts of your clothing or accessories can undergo more friction because of movement. It's important to be aware of these areas, like where your arms rub against your sides or where a bag strap may brush against a pin. To reduce friction, try strategically placing pins in spots where they won't constantly rub against something.

Avoid Excessive Force During Removal

When you're taking off your enamel pins to store or switch them out, it's important to be gentle and avoid using too much force. Instead of yanking the pin straight off, try wiggling it gently from side to side as you pull it out. This will help reduce any strain on the pin and its post, ensuring a smooth removal without any unnecessary stress!

Make sure to incorporate these tips into your routine to guarantee that your pins stay in top-notch condition so that you can proudly showcase your collection without any worries. And to check out all of our enamel pin accessories, including our Deluxe Locking Pin, visit The Gray Muse here!
