Thumb tacks are great for tacking stuff up, but removing them can be a huge pain–and I mean that literally. Unless you’re extremely masterful in removing such tacks, you’ll probably do some damage to your fingernails in the process.
Service the same use as these thumb tacks but in a much more nail-friendly design are these Easy to Press Pins.
Use the Easy to Press pins as you normally would any other pin. The difference is how you remove them when you’re done: all you have to do is press on the opposing end, pull on the other end to get it loose, and you’re done. No muss, no fuss, and no damage to your nails!
