J19994 - Set of 3 MagnaPin Jewelry Fasteners
ANOTHER GREAT USE FOR YOUR MAGNAPIN
I use my MagnaPins to hold pins and have had no problems whatsoever - I think they're great. But I also use them to hold together all those sweaters that have the extra draped material in the front that are supposed to hang open with a camisole underneath - showing the waist and tummy area - which is usually the last thing some of us ladies want highlighted!! I just put them on each side of the sweater - behind the folds in the drape in the front - right at waist height and the sweater then forms a figure flattering "V" in the front while hiding all the problem areas. I cannot tell you how many times I've been stopped by women who love my sweater and the thing they love about it is that it's NOT OPEN AROUND THE WAIST AREA!!! I direct them right to QVC for the Magna Pin secret!!
Back in 2003 I ordered a Set of 2 Magna Mate Magnetic Clasps in a gift box for $23.95 that included S & H and WA State Tax. Later that year I ordered 2 more sets, one for myself, the other as a Xmas gift. I still have all 4 that I kept. One of these is on a pin guard that holds a sorority pin with associated charms which I wear at least once a month.
I DO AGREE with reviewers that find it hard to run the pin shaft thru the raised triangular bar. But that seems to be the price to pay to keep the pin from rolling. I really SYMPATHIZE with those who lost irreplaceable and/or valuable items because these MagnaPins failed to work as advertised. I'm just reporting my experience with this product (or an older version of it).
Ordered so many of these sets, some of the holes in the magnets go thru pins and some only thru very thin stems of the pins. You just really need to play with them and your pins, but they REALLY work. What I've done is purchase a special pin and added a megnapin fastener as a gift. BEWARE: make sure you receive 3 sets when you order. Had a rough time since the shippment dept was only packing 1 set. But in the long run, QVC acknowledged the error and took care of the difference. They are truly a top-notch company to deal with. You will love the fact that there are no more holes in your clothing and will enjoy your pins more. I'm reaching for them more then in the past - actually didn't wear them until I ordered these. They are strong and will hold till you remove.
I lost 1/2 of the magnet.
I have had these pins for a long time, and I was about to order another set, but after reading the reviews, I may not. I just recently lost the half of the magnet that goes under your clothes. I was SITTING in my car in the garage and noticed that my pin had come loose. When I tried to take it off, the back magnet fell down in that "never-never land" between the seat and the console. I taped a magnet on a ruler and ran it under the seat to try to grasp the lost piece, but to no avail! So, I am sure it is stuck to some metal part under my car seat!
I think if they made the top half easier for the pin to go through, our pins would probably slip around inside that little tunnel, and then we'd have a different problem. Like someone else said, maybe they should make the magnets in a long, slim shape, but then some of our smaller pins wouldn't work.
I PURCHASED THESE SOMETIME AGO AND THEY ARE WONDERFUL. I WEAR A
LOT OF JACKETS TO WORK AND HAVE NOT HAD ANY PROBLEM ON CLOTH OR
LEATHER. I LEAVE THEM ON MY MOST USED PINS. THE SILICONE INSIDE THE
STICK PART REALLY MAKES THEM STAY. I WOULD RECOMMENED THEM TO
ANYONE. SHARON --MONTANA
a piece of junk
wore this magnet with pin two days ---lost two pins and the magnet
one was on an unlined fleece jacket
Love them !
I have used these for years and I am very happy with them. They work great on all my clothes. I don't think you will be disappointed in them !!
Love These Little Buddies!
I order 1 set and then ended up ording more to give to my friends. They are great! I wear alot of scarves and I don't want to make a hole in them from the pins that I use and they save the day. If I have a heavy pin then I will use two and I have not had any problems. No one could go wrong.
worked for me
first I got them I counted them cuz of other reviews and then I grabbed my pins in different shapes and sizes and metals on some of them I had to use safety pins to clear up the opening and after that I had no problem it worked for even my heaviest pins it is awesome no more holes in tops or no more worries about loosing my pins. thanks
Only Got 1 in the box, huh!
Bought these with the expectation that I would get three, actually got only one. I use it and I love the idea that my clothes don't have permanent holes in them now. The one I received was hard to get on the pin but once there, voila! But really disappointed that I only received one. Didn't look into the box until after my 30 days were up so I can't return it. Oh well! Lesson learned.
I saw these a while ago and didn't think I would need them. Then I had to start wearing a name tag pin at work and I didn't want to put holes in my clothes. So I ordered these and I couldn't be happier. I recommend these for anyone who doesn't want to put holes in their clothes with pins.
They work fine for me
I wore these yesterday for the 4th of July celebration with a pin on my t-shirt and they worked great.
