Scatter Pin, Tie Tack, Tie Tac:


Scatter pins and tie tacks at first glance may appear the same but there is a difference. A tie tack is going to have to be longer then a scatter pin would be to work. A tie tack prong must be able to go through 4 pieces of fairly thick material. Most scatter pin applications are going to go through one fairly thin piece of material like a hat or a lapel. As with most findings in this industry there are a large and confusing array of these types of pins to choose from. Some of the things to consider What should be the size of the gluing/soldering pad. Generally sizes are 4mm- 12mm. The length of the post mostly between 5/16 and 3/8. And the style of clutch you want to use with the tack.

Clutches available for tacks include the very popular pinch type. These are simple and inexpensive the style you see on military pins and such...The mechanical clutch. This is a spring loaded style. They look nice on tie tacks and some can be had with a chain attached to attach to a shirt. On the down side they are pricey and are prone to breakage. Lastly there is a very inexpensive rubber clutch that can be used.
