What Are Push Pins?
Push pins, also known as wall tacks, are short pins used to fasten paper and other items to a wall, bulletin board or display. Unlike nails or screws, you can use your thumb to push them into a surface and easily display important papers and documents. They typically have a metal or plastic component that secures their metal point and makes them easier and safer to use. Tack pins come in a variety of colors and shapes that can be helpful when organizing different types of information. Additionally, push pins can be quickly and easily removed from any surface and leave little to no damage. Magnetic push pins and specialty wall pins are also available and can be used on other surfaces like refrigerators and more.
What Types of Push Pin Tacks Are Available?
While all push pins generally serve the same purpose, there are some distinct differences between them. Here are some of the different types of push pins available at Quill:
- Magnetic push pins are great for posting reminders on the office refrigerator because they have magnets that can stick to any steel surface.
- Map tacks come in a variety of colors that pop out and are easy to keep track of, making them a perfect choice for color-coding information.
- Clear wall tacks have a transparent head attached to the pin, making them the perfect choice for posting information that you want to keep readable and unobstructed.
- Aluminum head push pins have a strong steel pin, which makes them easy to insert into even the toughest surfaces.
How Can Push Tacks Be Used?
Push pin tacks can be used in a variety of helpful ways around the office. For desks with limited room, wall tacks are a great way to free up space while keeping important documents visible and within reach. When paired with aluminum corkboards, they can also be used to post important bulletins and hang up calendars for easy viewing. Push pins can be helpful when you are trying to declutter your workspace and keep your office organized. They are also a safer choice because they lack the sharp point that standard push tacks have.
