Ninjapins leave less evidence of your pushpins

by Mark R

When I first went to college, I was told not to use pushpins on the dorm room wall, because of the hole that they leave behind.

Now there is the ninjapins, which are designed to leave less of a mark. They would have to be, since they are named after the assassins who kill in secret. I wonder what the AskANinja ninja feels about them.

The ninjapin does not have a round point to it, but rather an “L” shaped slit. As you can see, it leaves less of a mark then your regular pushpin.

Granted, it is still a hole, but one that will not get noticed by your landlord. I suppose that it even ninjas can’t strike a blow without leaving some evidence.

Traditionally, if you have a pinhole in your wall, most people try and hide it with toothpaste. I never tried this method back when I lived in my college dorm, but it apparently works. Leave a comment if you can testify that this method is good.

You should be able to purchase a 5-piece set from AssistOn for about $5. That’s $1 per pin, and they don’t have the shape necessary for pull-outs like regular pushpins. I’ll let you decide whether or not this is a good investment. It all depends on what your landlord charges for damages.

A tube of spackle sounds like a great idea. I just used the tubs.
