2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap & cheerful, not good value for money...., 15 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Hangerworld Plastic Soft Grip Clothes Pegs for Washing Lines, Extra Strong, Pack of 60 (Kitchen & Home)
I'm surprised by all the good reviews to be honest. Basically you get what you pay for, & these are 'cheap' pegs - neither 'good value' nor 'inexpensive'. They are NOT a well-designed peg, & I've tried everything from these to stainless pegs, recycled plastic ones, & even the Brabantia ones (which are awful!) in my search for a good all-round design.

Basically, these pegs flex & twist too much when opening up, & I've had a couple ping apart within a few weeks as a result. The spring isn't particularly strong (but too strong for the flexible plastic which is partly causing the twisting I think..), & the poor hinge design means that (a) the plastic doesn't keep the spring in place, & (b) the clothing's fabric can foul the spring/hinge area causing it to spread apart as well as mark the clothing...

For the record, I've tried around 7 or 8 different pegs over the last couple years, & one of the best I've used so far (I'm in no way affiliated to the product or the company) are these 'Extra Strong Non-Slip Clothes Pegs' sold by 'Caraselle' on Amazon; the spring is strong, the plastic is tough, the grip-area is of the soft-rubber type, & the hinge design is excellent (the spring is well-retained, & it's impossible to get fabric into the hinge area):

The are certainly more expensive, but it's a good example of 'you get what you pay for'.
