    Good first post OP. Can't believe it's your first deal post and you've been registered since 2013!

    Aldi pegs were 316 steel which is better than the 304 in these ones

      This. Get 316 steel or don't bother.

      I live the ones from Activated Eco myself.

      Are they well built? Would they bend/fall apart before they rust?

      I genuinely hate plastic pegs - they start crumbling after a single summer. Keen to check out steel peggos.

      Edit: Aldi had a steel sock drying thing with twenty or so pegs on it. Its still going strong 5years later. Does anyone know where to get these? They seem to have disappeared and replaced with crummy plastic ones.

        They are very well built but not cheap at about $1 a peg. I've had them outside for 3 years now and still look new.

        I bought my mother some and told her to leave them for me in her will.

    ~$0.30 per peg for Woolworths half price and Aldi;

    Aldi pegs are 316 steel vs 304 steel - better strength and corrosion resistance (and more expensive because less widely used world wide).

    • +2 votes

      Neither are going to corrode hanging out your washing though.

      • +3 votes

        I agree. I'd say most of us bring our pegs indoors anyway (?).

        Found out about this whole 304 vs 316 steel debate when I bought a security screen door. Went with CrimSafe (304) as it was a bit cheaper and I justified that it probably wasn't going to corrode in its lifetime as it wasn't realistically getting exposed to much water/salt

        • +5 votes

          I've never yet brought pegs indoors, unless you count the occasional one that gets caught on washing. I'm not aware of anyone I know bringing them in, they're either left on the line or in a little basket that hangs on the line or sits close by.

          I got cheap stainless steel pegs from AliExpress a few years back and they're still going strong. The Aldi ones are much better quality and I can't see them needing replaced for many years.

            @banana365: Same here, pegs stay outside lmao.

            •  

              @fatal: I admit i bring my pegs in because that's what was normal in my house growing up. I made a bad assumption that's what others do.

              If ur willing to make the switch, my crappy Kmart plastic pegs recently started to break after 10 years.

        •  

          Just to clarify - you won't need to bring either of these pegs indoors. They will both be happy and last forever outside in the sun and rain.

  •  

    Thanks OP.
    Will take a look at these. The aldi ones have a low grip strength resulting in the washing sliding along the line. They are okay for thick towels but not much else. It's the way the wire is formed that they sort of twist after releasing.
    Grabbed an aldi to compare with these. The way the wire is bent has the same pattern, although less of a see through gap, fingers crossed they clamp firmer
    .

      Let us know

    •  

      I've not had any problem with the Aldi pegs (or any pegs, including ancient style wooden ones with no spring) with grip. Are you just hanging them directly from the peg or do you do the normal "fold a little bit of the washing over the line and peg the double thickness bit"?

      •  

        normal as you described it

    Funny how society shifted towards "everything plastic" a few decades ago, and now we're going back to what things used to be, ie: wooden toys vs plastic.

    • +2 votes

      I mean, plastic was new and innovative, people viewed it as a more robust, cheaper and attractive option… Just cycles of technology?

      • +2 votes

        I don't see us moving back to plastic like before. Maybe we will, in the form of compostable plastics. (Ones that don't require an industrial high temp composter).

        Regardless, this trend is good to see.

        Cycles?

        Man plastic is killing the hell out of the global food chain.

        Micro plastics are in our water, our salt, our soil and our freaking rain clouds.

        They basically can't find anywhere on the planet without it - including remote areas of Alaska, the Arctic and Antarctic.

        Even though there was huge hype over Bisphenol-A being an endocrine disrupting chemical, now they're linking cling wrap, plastic drink bottles and other extremely common plastics as having similar effects.

          Okay I should have said "stages" rather than cycles… What I mean was the cycle of:

          New technology -> new consumer product -> consumer demand due to novelty -> product becomes commonplace

          repeat

          I'm not some advocate for adding plastics to rain clouds??

            @trapper: Did you listen to the NOAA talk or click on the article?

            Microplastics are causing damage to many species endocrine systems, which apart from messing up our ability to produce and regulate hormones is also causing issues with fertility in fish and amphibian species.

    Just a note that the Aldi ones at least need a bit of force to open.
    It means they stay shut well (have used a few for bag clips, no way they're falling off) but it does mean people with weaker grip/issues with their fingers will struggle with these. My partner and her mum both switched back to using plastic pegs for this reason

    I tried the ALDI ones last time and found the force of the spring left indentation marks in clothing. Can anyone point to any stainless steel pegs that don't have this issue?

    • +4 votes

      For clothes that we don't want peg marks on, we fold, hang and clip at the arm pits, or hang on clothes hangers (e.g., business shirts).

    If anyone wants really high quality stuff then go for this military-grade-pegs

    Although it's a bit pricey but I'm confident it'll last much longer.

    •  

      That looks similar to the Aldi #316 ones

      •  

        maybe 316 isn't 316 unless you pay more for it? common thinking round here….

      pincinox are nicer for roughly the same

      military grade pegs

    Great post. I think they could have been a little more generous with the pack size - A full clothes line for me uses about 150 pegs.

    I have purchased what seems to be the identical design from AliExpress with a good experience so far. Only downside to these is that they sometimes tangle themselves in the basket. 50 / 100 Stainless Pegs - https://a.aliexpress.com/_msoVwl1

    100 units for around $19.50. Shipping takes a few weeks but now that PayPal is supported and their easy to use dispute system you can buy with confidence.

    As a fabricator, the necessity of 316 grade steel is only needed where constant exposure to salt / pool / chemical affected water.

    • +1 vote

      I'm probably going to buy these, 100 pegs for $13.27.

      •  

        Even better, there are two sizes getting around but 6cm seems to be the larger & most practical size.

  •  

    Do they get hot to the touch in the summer sun?

    •  

      Marine grade 316 quality shouldn't. No idea about these though.

      •  

        @SirFlibbled wtf, the grade of steel has 0 relevance to heat retention in direct sunlight..

        @Wazbiz - I highly doubt they will burn you, unless its like 50 degrees out, which you wouldn't be hanging out washing in any case.
