 nice instructable! maybe you could find a way to sharpen the end...
btw, great photos

Yeah, it can. I made it and cliped my jeans. You just have to push a little hard. Apparantly doggy, is not strong enough.

gr8 idea but it cant peirce a pair of jeans

You can poke a hole in the jeans with a pen or pencil. Or a safety pin!

Great Idea!!! Too bad they don't allow needlenose pliers at school.

Sweet if my pants zipper ever breaks at the office I won't have to worry about not having a safety pin.

That was super easy, and now I'm mad that I never thought of it before.
