I do not know about you but I find myself needing a safety pin at the worst possible time crunch times. This has enough safety pins to make a to go cloth to in a slim packet in a purse, suitcase, at the office or another workplace -- in a variety of sizes to cover any need I can think of off hand. Solid buy, pleased with value and usefulness. Might get another for my daughter as she has two young children, boys yet. That is if she does not buy it for herself first.
