    Have you heard? You can trade frustration for peace of mind. Join customers who have held these in their hands and have immediately fell in love with their practicality and beauty. Our reliable, heavy duty and US made clothespins always outlast and outperform other pins on the market. With a lifetime guarantee you can purchase with confidence.

    Our factory second clothespins have some beauty flaws (can include but not limited to: marks, chips or sanding imperfections, varied thickness, rough inside tips). Factory Second pins are clothespins with production “beauty” flaws but still are sturdy and functional. Instead of taking production time to remedy some of these flaws we sell them at a discount. They do not have any functional flaws. However, we do NOT recommended factory seconds for use on gentle care items because of their rougher texture.

    Each pin is made in the Pacific Northwest with local maple and a heavy duty stainless steel spring. This winning combination produces a pin that can be handed down through generations. At 3.5” long and 7/16 wide Kevin’s Quality Clothespins are longer, wider and easy to hold. One pin holds a pair of wet jeans on a windy day. Linseed oil helps to protect the clothespins from the weather and brings out the beautiful wood grain. The linseed oil soaks into the clothespins and will not harm clothing.

    Note: Bare/ un-oiled pins are only available as firsts.

    The weather has been great, so I finally had the chance to use these - they are the best clothespins I have ever used, and I only line dry my laundry.  I would recommend these to anyone - if you love to line dry then these are for you!

    I purchased 30 of these "seconds" a year ago and they are great! There are only maybe a half dozen that even appear to be second quality.  I plan on ordering another 30 to replace my remaining made in China cheapos very soon. Thank you so much for making these!

    These are fabulous!! FINALLY clothes pins made for hanging clothes rather than for crafting. Yes, may have very slight imperfections but nothing that hinder their use or safety. They are well made, have a strong grip and will last my lifetime and beyond. I think I will end up willing them to my daughter...that's how good they are!

    I purchased some bamboo clothespins from World Market which are nice and long, but so slick that sometimes it's hard to un-pin them from the laundry on the line. Then I purchased six 10-packs of these factory seconds - two for my mom, two for my daughter-in-law and two for myself. I absolutely love them. They are the best clothespins I've ever used and I've hung a lot of laundry. They are strong and well made and they grip really well. I have no trouble at all hanging laundry up with them or un-pinning them to take the laundry down. I just purchased five more sets of 10 - one for my mom, two for my daughter-in-law and two for myself!

    These are well made and strong. They're easy to open and hold heavy items in strong winds. They're also great for chip clips, etc.. Thank you for making a superior quality product. They might cost a bit more, but I know I'm helping an American family business and I'll never have to buy another clothespin again, (unless it's from here).

    I inherited my mother's heavy duty clothespins many years ago (they are at least 30 years old now), but I needed more. I purchased some cheap, flimsy made in China wooden clothes pins to add to my collection; I hated them after one use. Finally, I decided to look for made in the USA heavy-duty clothespins and came across these. I bought the seconds after good reviews - I don't care if they have some minor flaws in appearance. I am very pleased with the quality and size of these pins. It is windy where I live, so I need pins that will stay put and not fall apart if the wind gusts 15 - 20 mph which it does often. These are excellent. They are strong, larger than average pins. These babies will last for years. The seconds are just fine for my purposes and I recommend them if you aren't concerned about a perfect appearance. There was only one out of the three sets that had an obvious flaw in the wood, but it does not affect its performance at all. They are also guaranteed just like the 1st quality pins. If you know someone that likes to use a clothesline, these would make a nice gift.

    This is the second year I have acquired some of these clothes pins. I plan in a year or two to have nothing but these as they are the best I've had in the 20 years I been doing bulk laundry. If my lines are full I use about 120 pins so am well on the way. I would encourage anyone looking for a good quality clothes pin to get these! I can not say enough good about this product. They actually hold sheets on the line in the wind and that is amazing considering some of the awful pins I've been using.

    We are inveterate laundry hangers and have a motley crew of clothespins we have acquired over the years. The tiny ones I use for attaching one hanky to another. The larger ones hold up pants and sheets that might blow away. Since we were low on clothespins I decided to try these ones on a recommendation. They are the best! I can hang heavy or large things up on windy days and they stay put just fine without blowing all over the field and into the trees. The factory seconds are very high quality and were nice enough to suit my needs just fine.

    I love these clothes pins. I bought 40 clothes pins and last week. Yesterday, I did 4 loads of laundry using the new clothes pins and fell in love. I ran out of the new clothes pins and started using my old Walmart clothespins and two Walmart clothes pins broke in my hand while hanging the laundry. This morning I am back to order 40 more clothes pins so I will be throwing the useless Walmart clothes pins away. Thank You for making a beautiful product that works exactly the way I should!

    Better than I imagined

    Durability

    Value

    Performance

    Appearance

    We ordered these "en masse" after the umptieth load of sheets ended up on the lawn with nothing but a gentle breeze, along with several broken clothespins from the big box stores. This led us on a search for the old fashioned clothespins like our parents, grandparents, and even we once used, that actually stayed on the line and didn't snap or have the spring fall out at the slightest provocation. I was doing laundry when these arrived and the difference between what we can buy in the local stores and these pins is night and day. They are larger by far, sturdier, thicker, and the spring is heavy duty, not the glorified paperclip that we'd been using for too many years. I have already tossed all of my previous pins, including some that we'd not yet opened, as they just do not hold up, but these "Kevin's Quality Clothespins" definitely did the trick. I even got them as factory seconds, and couldn't be more pleased. Yes, they are pricey, but considering that they will definitely last, and you don't have to use a dozen to hold up a single sheet, they are definitely worth it in the end. I've told my mother and daughter about them too. Thank you.

    I'm a mom of 4, and hang all of our laundry. I have been frustrated for YEARS about how cheapy the clothespins are out there.

One of the best daily use products I have ever used! Oh, and I live in Oklahoma where wind is not calm. These things are amazing!

    We purchased 200 of the seconds to use with flagging material to mark trails for some long distance trail running events. These clothespins have all the features we were looking for including larger size for fingers to hold/grip easily, strong spring to hold securely to branches, two different hole sizes in the jaws to accommodate different sized branches and a large spring opening to insert and tie the flagging. Our course marking crews raved about how easy they are to use, how well they held in place and how much easier marking the trails was with these clothespins. Thanks for a great product!

    I recently purchased 5 10 packs of factory seconds. They are the sturdiest clothespins I have ever seen or used. I believe they will probably outlast me! They hold laundry on the line even in 30 mph winds. My only problem is that they do not hold the laundry in place on the wire. This would not be a problem if my wire was thicker.

    I love to hang my wash on the clothesline to dry, however, I would very often come home from work to find my laundry on the ground because of the wind. I was glad to see that these clothespins were made in the US and gave them a try - I am so pleased with how well they hold the clothes on the line, even heavy jeans and towels. I bought the seconds and only see minor flaws and they seem to be holding up well, would certainly recommend them.

    I grew up in Chgo 1960's, my mom hung everything outside or in the basement. We had wooden pins no clip style. I married young and moved to an upscale suburb with a BIG yard. I wanted my 4 boys to fall asleep on soft breeze scented pillow cases not Downey. 30 years ago antiquing with mother in law I bought a huge glass jar of olden wooden pins like yours. Loved how they held heavier blankets etc without snapping in 2. I found a website a few years ago but there was a long waiting list. Then yours popped up and I was intrigued w the seconds. I can only imagine what first quality is like as the seconds are GREAT!  I may buy a lot more as I intend to hand again in my basement this year. I keep a canvas bag full of pins in my garage and basement.
