Handmade Wooden Heavy Duty Clothes Pins
Clothes pins have been around for centuries and are used for many different things. Here on our homestead they are mainly used for holding clothes to the clothesline.
As a homemaker I’ve been line drying clothes for years, and have gone through many different styles of clothespins. From plastic, to peg, to cheaply made China pins, and no matter which ones I bought, I never could find heavy duty clothespins that hold up to the wind we get here on the farm. My clothes would always end up on the ground.
I was almost at my wits end until I finally found heavy duty clothespins on Amazon that are made right here in the USA!. I was skeptical at first, but these have not let me down and I have been using them for a while now!
Even though their main job is to hang clothes, you usually can find one in every drawer in our home.
I finally found heavy duty clothespins.
Made to be handed down through the generations, this is a clothespin that will outlast and outperform other pins in the market. These heavy duty clothespins are perfect for crafting, home decor or hanging clothes on the line. You will love them for their wonderful practicality and beauty.
Better than your grandma’s clothespins.
They are hand made in the Olympic Peninsula with local maple and a heavy duty stainless steel spring. At 3.5″ long and 7/16 wide it is longer, wider and will hold your clothes to the clothesline better than any pin on the market. The spring has more tension than expected. Customers tell us that one pin hold one pair of wet jeans on a windy day.

Here are a few different ways as a homemaker I use them around our house.
- It’s a perfect clip for an opened bag of pretzels
- They make great plant markers when sowing spring seeds
- We use them to clip shut opened vegetable bags in the freezer
- I use them to clip a towel around a grandbaby as a bib
- They hold hard to hang garments on a hanger in my closet
- I’ve even used them as place settings by writing my guests name on them and clipping them to their glass
- And lastly my favorite use, is to hold a cookbook open

Thank you for the link. I think I may just have to order some. They are so reasonably priced and the ones you find locally in stores are not worth the price.
We use them on the patio to clip our gardening gloves to the rack for drying. Also, clipping the towel around our boy when he gets his hair cut. I just love clothespins.
Clothespins are lile rubberbands…I am always looking for one. Thanks for sharing your how you use them.
We also use clothes pins for so many things…..This winter while it was so bitterly cold and windy, we used lots of clothes pins to add an extra layer of insulation to our house by pinning up sheets and blankets over the inside of the windows and some doors- it was darker for a few days, but warmer also. I appreciate the info on stronger clothes pins. Thank you for sharing this.
What a great idea…thanks for sharing it with us. Now that I think about it I think this is the way my mom did the same thing when we lived in a very drafty farmhouse.
If you would consider American Made Clothespins, please look at our website. We make clothespins that last for generations.
I am so happy you comments and showed us there is still someone making handcrafted clothespins! What a great find!
I’ve seen these clothes pins before but never got around to ordering them. I use pins in the same ways you do! I especially like to use them in the freezer and as “chip clips”! Thanks for reminding me that I want to buy these next payday!
Linda you won’t be sorry you bought them. I know they are a little pricey, but they are so worth it!
I love the feel of my new clothespins. I live in a windy part of Montana and although it is great for drying clothes, it is also good at ripping the pegs off the line. These do not budge and their special finish will stand up to the conditions here. Thank you for your craftsmanship and attention to detail. These would make a wonderful gift. With their replacement guarantee I am including them in my will.
I love these pins! I know they are a little costly but my Dad always taught me to buy quality items and they last so much longer and save you money in the long run!
Thank you so much for this! I have searched everywhere. I am new to hanging clothes and seems like nowhere in my town carries a decent clothespin for real use not crafting. I am going to give these a try!
They are worth their weight in gold, aren’t they. Mine were a Christmas gift to myself last year. I was so excited!
I would be lost without them! I never have to worry about hanging heavy clothes, rugs or even my heavy blankets. Nothing EVEN pops off with these pins.
Always great to find a quality made product nowadays! Thanks for the link!
These sound great, the plastic ones just don’t cut it. I’m going to put these on my Christmas list this year. Thanks for sharing at Good Morning Mondays. Blessings
Hey, this is great! Thanks for the link. These are actually less expensive than another American-made clothespin I’d found. I followed a link from Oak Hill Homestead and the blog hop 🙂
The clothespin bucket is a big toy to my kids, so I often find them scattered around the house. The ones from my dollar store really don’t hold up well to abuse by kids and dogs, so I’m curious how these would work. I’ll have to check them out.
My husband uses them to mark his place when he moves the ladder over when cleaning the gutters. Saves a lot of time.
What a great tip…thanks for sharing it with us.
Clothespins are so versatile, I always have a couple hanging around in the kitchen! We just started the To Grandma’s House we go link party and I thought you might be interested in sharing there too, thanks 🙂
You wouldn’t think it would be so hard to find good-quality clothespins! I use them for all sorts of things, too. In fact, I just picked up a package of them at a garage sale. Next time I need some I’ll check out your recommendation, though. Thanks for letting me know that they exist.
I know they are a little pricing but I haven’t had to replace them yet and its going on a year since I started using them!
