FOREVER PEGS® - The Best Eco Friendly Clothes Pegs in NZ

Stainless Steel Clothes Pegs are an eco friendly alternative to plastic clothes pegs. They are durable, reusable and they last for a long time. At Bento Ninja we have varieties of sizes and grades of stainless steel clothes pegs. But how do you choose the peg for you? Which size do you need and what's the difference between 304 and 316? What does that even mean? Let me explain the world of best, plastic-free and eco-friendly forever pegs to you. 

We have different sizes, different strengths and different quality stainless steel of pegs at Bento Ninja. It all depends on your needs, where you live, what you plan to use the pegs for and how you plan to store the pegs. 

Generally the higher the number of stainless steel the better the quality and less corrosive it is. The bigger the wire diameter the stronger the peg, so it is better for heavier and thicker clothes or in the windy regions.  


Stainless Steel Clothes Peg Guide

Grade 304 Pegs: Stainless steel 304 is Bento Ninja's standard grade pegs. We do not stock the cheaper version of stainless steel 201. 304 are more durable and higher corrosion resistance, and can be left outside (although we recommend to wash off the build up dust and dirt every couple of months). Ideal for most homes and most conditions. If you live in a particularly windy area, and have heavy clothes, consider using stronger TOUGH pegs rather than the STANDARD pegs.

Grade 316 MARINE Pegs: The toughest steel that won't corrode in even the harshest environment. Marine grade steel is designed for salty conditions so you can leave outside and they won't corrode. These are available in 2mm wire stronger size pegs. Because almost all the beachside is windy in NZ! If you live by the ocean or you want to leave the pegs permanently outside without worrying, these pegs are for you. These are definitely the ULTIMATE FOREVER PEGS®!!
