Changing our Pins

We have received some feedback that some of our clients are unhappy with how soft our titanium pins are. So we have made the decision to switch to stronger Steel Pins. You might see some crossover with products that have already been manufactured, however, if you want them switched out, we can absolutely do that for you.

In addition, if you like how soft the pins are, and would like to continue to order the titanium, we can do that upon request.

You can email us at


Thank you!!
