I sent a picture drawn from the excellent description posted
yesterday to the Orchid ftp. The name is
Nice, Chunk. There are many many variations on this basic idea you’ve
drawn, that help with things like:
~ a stop device on the tubing to prevent the pin from closing right
up, to add some springiness to the pin wire when closed - like a
stepped part at each end of the tube.
~ another stop to prevent the pins from opening too widely, makes it
easier to put on the fabric.
~ a more snug fit of the pin thru the tube!
