A small slender (often pointed) piece of wood or metal used to support or fasten or attach things WordNet 3.0 & WordNet 2020
A pin is a device used for fastening objects or material together, and can have three sorts of body: a shaft of a rigid inflexible material meant to be inserted in a slot, groove, or hole ; a shaft connected to a head and ending in a sharp tip meant to pierce one or more pieces of soft materials like cloth or paper ; a single strip of a rigid but flexible material whose length has been folded into parallel prongs in such fashion that the middle length of each curves towards the other so that, when anything is inserted between them, they act as a clamp, or two strips of a rigid material bound together by a spring at one end so that, when the spring held open, one can insert some material between the prongs at the other end that, the spring allowed to close, then clamp the inserted material.
