1. Safety Pins can be a Weapon
Have you ever accidentally stabbed yourself with a safety pin? If so, you know that they are very sharp and can cause a lot of pain.
Although they will never be a replacement for a gun or a knife, an opened safety pin is a great way to defend yourself in an emergency situation.
In fact, a safety pin that is hidden in your pocket probably will not be taken away if someone apprehends you, and you can use this element of surprise to jab a hostile person’s eye.
