So what's up with
these clothes pins?
Pins to C-47s to B-52s
Grips and Electrics
have been using clothespins to attach gels to lights (and other uses) for dozens
of years... and at least one story has an executive relabeling them "C-47s"
to account for them on the studio budget sheets. "Clothespins" just
wasn't "Hollywood enough"!
And maybe you've seen
these around... C-47s turned around (some people call 'em B-52s)
and usually secured with a bit of electrical tape.
We don't know who first
started this trend, but nearly everyone has had a laugh when ACs and other non-grip/electrics
try making one for the first time!
pins grip better than unmodified clothespins. By using the
slimmer portion of the pincher along with the grooves seen
on the best wooden clothespins, the B-52 is perfect for removing hot
scrims from lights - without fumbling for a pair of gloves.
We don't know how
many of the 400 million clothespins Diamond
Brands manufactures each year become "movie stars",
but we can tell you that there is something special about
Danny Boy Services' clothespins.
Instead of using electrical tape
which eventually unwraps leaving a sticky mess, Danny Boy's pins are double-dipped
in a special rubber coating which seals the spring, provides a better grip, and
offers a durable, long lasting improvement over the run-of-the mill "bullet".
And now, of course, you can BUY these Customized Dannyboy Services B-52 Clothespins for only $11.00 for a bag of 25. (Plus shipping)
Just email us at Dannyboy Services, LLC and mention "Clothespins" in the Subject line. We'll tell you how to get your simple yet amazingly useful B-52!
