Enamel Pins: 5 Tips To Keep Them From Falling Off

Enamel pins are a fun way to show off your interests, hobbies, and personality. Unfortunately, pins that are not secured properly can easily become undone and fall off. If you've ever lost a pin, you'll know how frustrating that is.

If your pins keep falling off, their pin backs might be too weak to secure them into place. To stop losing more lapel pins, I've gathered the best hacks, products, and solutions on how to keep pins from falling off.

Without further ado, here's how to stop pins from falling off!

1. Use Locking Pin Backs

If you're protective of your favorites, or wear your pins in an area that recieves a lot of knocking around, such as a backpack, these are great to have. Locking pin backs lock into place for extra security and are the sturdiest type of pinback. To remove them, a spring mechanism on the back must be lifted.

Looking for ideas on how to keep pins from falling off? Try using locking_pin backs! These special pin backings are specifically designed to stop pins from falling off. They have a locking mechanism that helps keep pins in place.

To "lock" enamel pins on your bag or backpack, I highly recommend these locking_pin backs . This product fits most lapel pins, has a smooth back, and is made of quality nickel-plated copper. It has excellent grip to keep your pins in securely place until you are ready to remove them.

2. Use Super Glue

Looking for a permanent solution on how to keep pins from falling off?

Try using super glue! If you don't plan to remove your pins, super glue is an effective way to prevent theft and keep pins from falling off your backpack or bag.

To attach pins permanently, simply apply a dot of super glue onto the pin back before securing the enamel pin. For pins, I recommend using a strong adhesive like Gorilla Super Glue Gel. This product has an easy-to-use, clear formula that works great on lapel pins and pin backs!

The Gorilla Super Glue Gel dries fast in only 10 to 45 seconds! For best results, I recommend waiting 24 hours for a full cure before wearing your pins outside.

3. Buy Pins with 2 Butterfly Clutches Pin Backs

If your pins keep falling off, their backings might be too weak to secure them into place. To stop losing more enamel pins, I recommend replacing old pin backs with stronger ones, like these butterfly clutch pin backs .Butterfly clutch pin backs are the most common backings for lapel pins. These pin backs look like butterflies and easily open up when the "wings" are squeezed. They are strong and durable enough to ensure that you won't lose your pins again!

Note that the "wings" can feel hard under clothing. If you want something more comfortable on your skin, I recommend using a rubber pin back instead. Otherwise, this is a simple solution on how to stop pins from falling off your backpack or bag!

Safety_pin clasps are a secure way to attach lapel pins to clothes, bags, backpacks, and accessories. Although easy to open and close, they are difficult get undone by accident. It is no surprise that safety pins are a popular method to temporary secure loose or broken pieces of clothing.

If you are creating your own pins at home, I highly recommend using these safety_pin clasps as the backing. Unlike standard pin backs, these clasps stay securely in place and will not easily fall off.

For best results, select an appropriate length safety pin clasp based on the size of your pin. To attach them to the back of your enamel pin, simply apply a permanent glue like super glue.
