I have been using The Nickle Universal Pin Catch from Rio Grande for
a few years now and over time I am not truly happy with the result.
Maybe 50/50 on the satisfaction-o-meter. I like selling pins but I
am not thrilled to sell a new pin because the original was lost “
someplace between the car and the restaurant.” While I can make some
very trouble freelatches people seem to want the “manufactured” look
of the Universal.
I am willing to believe that I am doing something wrong with the
installation of the catch but I can’t sus out what that might be.
Has anyonehad a similar experience with the product mentioned? Has
anyone found a better product to substitute?
