Nothing But Cheap CRAP ! ! !
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
UNION, NEW JERSEY -- What the heck????
I bought a pack of their large safety pins...and THIS is what I get????

It's not as if I was trying to pierce through IRON...Just a piece of soft fleece, that's IT! SOFT FLEECE!!!!

I attached a photo to show how flimsy and cheaply made they are.
No wonder they call them 'Safety Pins', I doubt you can even poke your eye out with them!!!

I found their website and noticed they sell craft and office supplies, no way would I ever buy anything more from them, if they can't even make a safety pin that can pierce through a thin piece of fleece material, I can just imagine what their scissors or staplers must be like!

Stupid China CRAP!


4/11/12's been a month now and no replacement product yet! In fact I had forgotten about it, until I just received a 'Helpful' notification for this review.

So, I guess this hasn't be 'Resolved' after all.

Cheap China Crap and empty surprise there.

Resolution Update 03/06/2012:
After writing this review and Emailing Allary a link to this review, I recieved the following response:

Subject: Product Complaint

I have to tell you, I am very disappointed in your Safety Pins products.

They are so cheaply made, I bent THREE of them, just trying to pin a thin fleece fabric.

I wrote a review about my disappointment, if you would like to read and /or comment on it.

I just wanted to let you know so maybe some improvements can be made to make this a better product in the future.

Dear D B:
Actually, your comments are accurate and we are embarrassed by this product being in the market place. Allary sells millions of safety pins on a annual basis and although the pins you are referring to are but a minute fraction of our sales it never should have occurred. A long term Chinese factory decided without telling Allary that it would be okay to change our specifications and produce safety pins using thinner gauge wire.

Your complaint was not the first but when we received the first complaint about 6 months ago, we immediately discovered the problem, cancelled this vendors orders and replaced with a new vendor who is producing to the correct specifications. It was impossible to recall as we had no idea who actually got this very limited shipment.
We sincerely apologize and if you send us your address we will be glad to send you replacement products.

Oh...and yes, I'm going to let them know about their cheap product and send them a link to this review.

WHEW! Glad to get that off my chest...guess I'll go take my frustrations out on the Angry Birds!

I get safety pins at the dollar store
DebtorBasher on 03/03/2012:
I bought these at DrugMart. No matter what the price is, you would expect a product as simple as this to at least serve it's purpose.

They don't look very safe to me
DebtorBasher on 03/03/2012:
Maybe I can make some YouTube characters out of them...the 'Annoying Allary Pins'...LOL!
raven2010 on 03/03/2012:
oh UGH, those are as bad as the cheap paperclips I bought a couple weeks ago.
old fart on 03/03/2012:
What are you doing in Union, Noo Joisey??
Nohandle on 03/03/2012:
Do the safety pins even have a sharp point on them? I can't tell. No matter the price, it might be one of those protect the consumer from himself. We certainly wouldn't want to stick ourselves while attempting to use one.
Old Timer on 03/03/2012:
LOL, I thought was for a second. The most famous safety pin ever made was the one holding together Julia Roberts boot in Pretty Woman.
DebtorBasher on 03/03/2012:
Shhhh, Old F...*I'm spying, don't blow my cover!*
Venice09 on 03/04/2012:
Those are some pathetic looking pins. So much junk being produced these days. It's a shame.
Alain on 03/04/2012:
No pointy, no pricky! (Good review! I'll remember the name and avoid them!)
trmn8r on 03/04/2012:
Basher, I've always thought of you as soft and cuddly, possibly draped in velvet.

The picture makes me question that image. Awesome review!
DebtorBasher on 03/04/2012:
8er, I can be anything you want me to be ;)

Please don't let her be Kaley Cuoco... Please don't let her be Kaley Cuoco...
DebtorBasher on 03/04/2012:
Hmmmm...Mr. Mike, I was praying the samet thing!
old fart on 03/04/2012:
Who's Kelly Cuoco?
trmn8r on 03/04/2012:
Appears to be an actress, o_f. In some of the pics she looks like Chesty LaRue, in others a truck driver. Maybe she's a two-face.
Old Timer on 03/04/2012:
She is on The Big Bang Theory.
Mario The Great on 03/04/2012:
What do you mean WHO IS KALEY CUOCO? She's one of the hottest actresses out there. Who's Kaley...Man, you are old. :)
old fart on 03/04/2012:
Mario... I never try to keep up on the latest Hollywood flashes in the pans...LOL
At my age she'll be forgotten before I'm dead!
old fart on 03/04/2012:
I just looked her up on Google... She's OK but not a "raving beauty"... I wouldn't kick her out of bed but I wouldn't go out of my way to seduce her...
MRM on 03/04/2012:
I'm sorry Old Fart, but you'll need a new prescription of your bifocals.
old fart on 03/04/2012:
MRM and Mario... there you go again..thinking with your testicles, a sure sign of youth!

Kate is thousand times hotter.
MRM on 03/04/2012:
I'm just kidding around, Old Fart. Let the record show that I'm kidding with my fellow M3C, Old Fart!
old fart on 03/04/2012:
Me too MRM although I bet you need Mom's approval to check the list on your cellphone..LOL
old fart on 03/04/2012:
Kate who? wally...

old fart on 03/04/2012:
I tried to download her pic but my machine didn't like it.. oh well!
old fart on 03/04/2012:
I wouldn't kick her out of the sack either...
trmn8r on 03/04/2012:
I agree with you o_f. She'd be welcome in bed, but she would have to bring headwear for certain lighting conditions.
old fart on 03/04/2012:
trmn8r... maybe like a miners helmet?
DebtorBasher on 03/04/2012:
I thought the headware was used so she didn't go banging her head on the headboard, or wall, or floor...Oh wait, this is 8er talking...OK, so the headwear would be to protect her from banging her head on the ceiling! LOL! Don't count on these safety pins to hold her in place!!!
Mario The Great on 03/04/2012:
Kate Upton isn't as cute as Kaley. Megan Fox is hot and so is Jessica Alba. Regardless of YOUR age, those girls are still worth a divorce. LOL - How I pray that my wife doesn't read this.
DebtorBasher on 03/04/2012:
OOooooooooooo Mario,'re going to be in trouble with your wife now! But hey, for fifty bucks I'll delete the evidence, I mean...that comment! LOL!
DebtorBasher on 03/06/2012:
I received an response from the Allary Corp. this morning...Kudos to them for listening to their customers and fixing the wrong!

I have attached their company's response above.
MRM on 03/06/2012:
Hip Hip Hooray!
Old Timer on 03/06/2012:
"A long term Chinese factory decided", can't believe they fessed up to that one. Good for them! Walmart will add the cheap, crappy version of these pins as a lead item now. The cheaper the better, quality means nothing to WallyMart or the Chinese.
jktshff1 on 03/06/2012:
Thanks for the update
trmn8r on 03/06/2012:
Interesting insight here, and completely plausible. I'm thinking back to the problem I had with gutter screens and the stainless steel clips that suddenly were cheapened. In that case, the product was "Made in America".

Kudos to Allary for full disclosure on this issue, and thanks for updating us.
DebtorBasher on 03/06/2012:
8er, it could have been in American with parts from China or Japan...I've seen that on products before.

Dear Peter:
As you can see this was a blogger on the internet and this issue is still causing harm to Allary. However, I do believe it will not happen again.



DebtorBasher on 04/11/2012:'s been a month now and no replacement product yet! In fact I had forgotten about it, until I just received a 'Helpful' notification for this review.

At lease we know people are still reading it and will think twice before buying products from this company.
DebtorBasher on 04/15/2013:
Oh well....I guess I can stop waiting for them to make good on their promise .... LOL ... As if I really thought they would!
