I don’t always use them but when I do I like to use 4 pins. 2 on each side just like taping a disposable.

I use Boingo fasteners which are like mini tarp straps. I also use pins for
backup, but haven't had a Boingo come off in years since I've been using
them.

The "big diaper pins" from baby-pants.com. They are the real thing only bigger, locking plastic heads, and can handle an adult diaper without popping loose. On an adult they are to scale, just the right size.

I like Snappis and pretty much use the most of the time now. I like how they pull up on the center.
It's getting harder and harder to find real diaper pins these days.

Me too. I like the duckie ones. They're cute and a little bigger than the regular style. I use their Peva baby pants as well. They last almost forever!

Another source for Boingos is Changing Times Diaper Co, also get my Dritz baby pins there.

I also remember one night when my brother was still in diapers and my mom couldn't find my diaper pins, she used 2 of his di-d-klips on me. But I liked the pins much better.

Well I've just used pins tonight , 2 plain head with the safety cover and 2 with duckys on the end also powdered up with the J'n'J night time baby powder ,
Also I've notice that the more nights I wear cloth the more comfortable I'm becoming with the bulk , literally sleeping like my baby self 👶🏻

You are right Doc, the DUCKIE PINS are great. I remember the night my wife found them she could not wait to order them; got all of the colors except pink of course. She likes switching them up between the traditional style and the duckie pins... its fun.

I have tried all of the above and have had success with all of them but I think the diaper pins were less damaging on my flat diapers the hooks tend make holes in my diapers which only get worse with washing

We have never tried the hooks, and I dont want to, Diaper pins are traditional for me. We have been using the same diapers now for pushing into 2 years with pins, a little more than 2 dozen high quality cloth diapers, both night and day weights. I am not 24/7 but wear nearly every day. The cloth diapers are holding up beautifully. I replace plastic pants the most as over time they just wear out and eventually get holes in them.

When I wear cloth, I prefer contoured diapers with Velcro on the wings. I have a few that aren't that way and I use diaper pins. I'm not crazy about those.

I prefer plastic-head diaper pins over the metal-head ones--if I am wearing jeans, my belt pushes on the metal head and tends to tear my plastic pants.
