after I read in a post about them. I thought what a unique way to display and use pins. I really like the Goofy one the best... Do you have a unique way of displaying your pins.... Let us know.

Thank you Mark for taking the time to share these!!!

I had a honey do list... I lost it when I started framing...

Mark.... How did you attach the pins? Did you take the backs off?

I left the pin intact, removed the back (frog, clip, whatever you want to call it), drilled a hole in the switchplate, used some silicone glue on the reverse of the pin, put the "pin" through the hole and when I could, I put the back back onto the pin. In some cases, the back would not work due to where the pin location was in relation to the actual switch in the electrical box. In those cases, I just made sure the "pin" was not going to contact an electrical wire or anything else where it would present or create a hazard. You have to kind of play with the switchplate cover and the pins to see where the pins will fit and if you can put them in positions where the backs will go back on.

For the pins that do not have backs on them, the silicone glue has held very well thus far. I haven't have to re-glue any yet. Obviously, the glue and the pin back together are the best bet.
Hope this answers your questions.....
