Double Pin Posts. When will the madness end?

Capt WasabiCapt Wasabi AustraliaRegistered User regular
I can understand large pins having two posts.
But the star from Mario?... really?

It seems that everything since West has had two posts?
Why?
Is there a reason why everything has 2 posts now?

    I guess it stops them from turning upside down on your lanyard, and probably makes it less likely that one will accidentally fall off. I agree though that it seems like overkill for smaller pins.

    I heard something about it being the new "manufacturing standard," but nevertheless it makes it incredibly annoying to take pins on and off trading bag pages, etc.

    Sounds like Big Locking Back looking to double their profits to me!

    It bugs me because I want to wear a lot of these in my jacket lapels at work, but I don't actually want to put a hole in my suits/jackets. One pin can fit through the little hole that's often in the lapel. Two not so much.

    I agree attachment/detachment is a bit of a pain but then they're just so damn sturdy. I can't resist a sturdy post.
