Use a keyring then get your nipple pierced, add a nipple ring and attach both via a long 'punk' chain :)

Or if it's your best piece of clothing. http://www.zippermend.com/

Otherwise I like the duct tape idea:)

I would think it would depend on what piece of clothing you were applying it to. Just tape a jacket shut. Not recommended for pants or trousers.

Vissy, no way.

Xhi, that is a safety pin, not a paper clip.

I used 7-zip and found this;


Interestingly but always extremely boring, I always replace my own, in that way I have never been stitched up

Technology through innovation

Unless you working on the pig farm then you get 'four sprung pork technic'

Have helped a mate on his pig, and beef farm. They don't want to obey, they won't.
