    Award-winning

    There are "peg awards"?

    I wonder if Reva pegs (the official peg of the Ozbargain community) have been decorated in the past?

    I bought several bags of Hegs Pegs from Woolies or Coles in early August. The springs are already going loose in some of them, that is to say that they can no longer clamp onto the line and will instead fall from it when inverted.

    I expected them to be useless in 6-9mo (based on OzBargainer's reports), but not within 6 weeks. Most are still clamping, but it's not like they've seen much use either. They're mostly hanging on our shade-covered washing line unused. I'm expecting even more to fail as I start using them.

    My Reva Pegs I bought at the same time are still going strong, even if they're supposedly (again, according to OzBargainer's) not as good as they used to be.

      All pegs are crap these days. They won't last 12 months out in the weather.

        I bought a couple of packets from IKEA. Little clear, plastic hinge ones. After maybe a month they started occasionally exploding into pieces. I didn't mind, they were ~$2 for a packet of 20… until one exploded a pointy piece of plastic into my eye. I now fear for my safety. Stupid pegs.

        Makes no financial sense for peg companies to make quality products that last.

          Unless they want to increase market share.

          Well I used to always buy REVA and was the only brand I went to when they were made in AUS… now I have to go looking elsewhere.

        Been using Hegs for a couple of years and they sit out in the sun all day. Still in as new condition.

          I think the Hegs we bought aren’t the same as the Hegs today… judging by the feedback on here anyway.

      I have no problem with these pegs except they are designed to break due to the hing being a flex of the plastic .. if the made it in two parts they would last forever .. right now about 2 years max.

    •  

      Just asking, did you try returning it on grounds of bad quality?

      •  

        No. I have no receipt, and don't recall which chain (Coles or Woolies) I bought them in.

        I don't feel regret. I bought them as an experiment and the results are a valuable lesson.

    Award-winning Hegs Pegs

    Which award did they win?

    Plastic junk…

    Aussie ingenuity. Haven't had one break yet. They also reduce the peg marks on clothes due to their flat, wide surface. Highly recommend at this price!

      I just don't use pegs, easier!
      But instead of peg mark problems, I get a line across my shirts where they hang over the washing line rail thing.

        Another problem in winter is the increased drying time because your clothes are doubled over, looking forward to going back to pegless with warmer weather

    Don't know if this has any bearing on any potential customers

    Stainless steel pegs last…

    Just have to be careful running over them with the mower.

    Meh, give me wooden pegs any day over plastic crap … will never use plastic pegs again after one went brittle and exploded as I squeezed it … blinked just in time as a share of plastic smacked me in the eyelid.

      You mean the old style wooden pegs that get mouldy and leave dirty brain stains on the clothes? Those pegs win this thread hands down

      •  

        Depends on the climate you're living in. No mould on my wooden pegs here in Perth, still going strong after about 15 years of use.

    •  

      Wooden pegs can be made cheaply too, in which case they are even more useless than cheap plastic pegs. Albeit not as brittle (anything spring loaded is still potentially not safe though I suppose)

  •  

    Nothing beats clothes pins.

  •  

    Junk didnt last 6 months before they started to break

  •  

    These pegs are good and last well over a year; cheap too- https://www.kmart.com.au/product/soft-grip-plastic-pegs---pa...

    I bought these ages ago when they were still sold in bags and while they were ok, they're not designed to last very long because the hinge is just plastic. Had two hinges explode on me already.

    Been using Hegs Pegs for a couple of years now. Can't be faulted. They don't slide along your clothesline in strong winds and no sign of deterioration from the sun. Love 'em!
