  • Name Tags / Pins

    Hey, guys/gals. I've been having a problem with my nametag and pins for quite some time now, and thought I'd see what kind of solutions you have reached yourselves. The nametags we have are fastened to the shirts by sticking the sharp points through the shirt and attaching a little fastener on the inside of the shirt...I have no clue how to describe it other than that! It's the standard way most pins are designed. Anyway, the backs (fasteners) keep falling off the sharp points and then my nametag falls off. It is getting frustrating. Have any of you created your own little device to hold on your nametags?

    Break the eraser off a #2 pencil and use that. Works like a charm.

      Those fastners are reffered to as "Dammits." Wonder why? What's the first thing you say when you realize one is missing?

      I swear by these. They hold on until you want them off. Well worth the price.

        The posts that go through your shirt are supposed to have a groove cut around them that the clutch can grab onto. I suspect that groove is missing (I've had the same problem from time to time). If the groove is missing, take a pair of wire cutters, gently clamp them on the post and slowly rotate the post in the wire cutter blades. (Be careful not to cut the post off). This should cut a groove the clutch can grab onto.

          I used to work for a Lt. who'd leave his office unlocked while he was in the can...we'd go in and decapitate all his pencils while he wasn't looking.

          I found these about 2 years ago. They work great.

            SuperSix and Groundhog both use the same backs that I use. Our local unifrom shop sells them I have been using them for quite a while and they are great. My nametag is magnetic so it isn't a problem.

              I like those backs, have to try them one of these days.

              Normally I use a piece of web belt that I cut to put on the inside of the shirt behind the pin/tag. This makes sure that the backs are tight and also makes it look nicer because it keeps the pin/tag tight against the shirt.

                Thanks so much for your help, guys. I am getting ready to place an order for those backs. Thanks so much for your help!

                  If you work in an area where they're plentiful, I've heard the top stoppers of crack viles work wonders.... and they're free

                    Get a nametag that uses a magnet. That's what I use, and it has yet to fall off.
                    Looks like someone took their stupid pills today.

                      Crack viles? I haven't seen those is probably 15 years. The crack dealers around here use the tip points of sandwich baggies, it's a lot more economical. Gotta watch the overhead, right?

                        They're called "frogs." When I was with the CHP we took the small plastic covers off the striker portion of the road flares and used them on the inside of our shirts. Just push the pointed end of your name tag in. They work great.

                            My name tag is a screw on, I was at a biker show and found these little backings that had an allen key set screw, and I love em. I dont lose anything now. http://www.biker-pins.com/pin-guards-guard.html These are the best. They should be sold more places.
