    REALLY Secure that Kilt Pin

    I looked for an existing thread to post this, but couldnít find one. I grew up in the jewelry business, and wanted to share this trick of securing a kilt pin or brooch, the best way. The rubber band placed the way it is, snubs the pin against the fabric, and prevents the usual wobbling, common with this style. This helps tremendously in preventing damage to the fabric.

    Images didnít work!
    Insert image interface not functioning

    The forest was shrinking, yet the trees kept voting for the axe, because it's handle was made of wood, and they thought it was one of them.

    Steve, I tried several times this morning. It allowed me to upload an image or two to the "manage images" section, and I assume they may still be there. When I tried using the chat window image upload, it allowed me to choose images, but the button to uploadthem never activated.

    On older and worn pins, eyeglass hinge tightened o rings, slid over the hinge, and or pin latch, sometimes helps prevent them from coming loose.

    Pin Keepers

    I highly recommend these, they are a pin keeper secured with and Allen key. I've had one on my kilt pin for a number of years and have never had an issue.
