I wear many lapel pins vs. "regular" since losing the use of my left arm after a stroke; however, I did find that the metal clutches would lose their ability to hold the pin on. These rubber backings are a God-send to me. They hold the pins intact, and I don't have to worry about losing the pins!
These rubber clutches are wonderful! They hold the lapel pins securely so I never have to worry about losing my pins.
