Details

A T-pin is a two-pronged pin with a T-shaped head. The T-pin’s flat head prevents it from being pulled through the hole of disc. The two prongs are referred to as tines (or tails). In bearmaking they are used as a connector inside the fabric and between discs for mobility and to secure the bear’s limbs and/or head to its body. After passing the T- pin through the discs from inside the limbs and/or head to inside the body, the prongs, or tails, are separated or splayed apart, (using either long nose pliers or a cotter pin turner), and then each prong or tail is independently rolled down into a tight curl so that it touches the disc and provides a secure fit to the limb or head/body connection. They are also a preferred choice for use in miniature/smaller bears where it would be difficult to use another option such as the slot-head screw/locknut connection. Size 3.2 x32mm. Pack of 50. Sufficient for 10 bears that are 5-way jointed
