The quality is not to the level of a Blackinton, but they are decent to use as a backup piece. I like the magnetic backs for using on my uniform blouse because the clutch backs are a tight fit. I got one safety pin back and it was a waste, the safety pin was too short for the holes in my coat and sweater. So, if you have an article of clothing where only a magnetic back will do, I'd recommend these since Blackinton does no offer magnetic backs. They were easy to order and arrived quickly.
