Thanks!
I think it's all in how you put the safety eyes in that make them safe or not. i put them in then push on the plastic washer then i use triple strand of yarn through the hole at the bottom of the eye screw and tie them together. Then i anchor that to to some other part, usually a neck strap. i want to make absolutely sure that those eyes are not coming out no matter how hard my grandson may pull, tug or suck on them! So i only buy safety eyes that have that hole in the bottom of the screw part.
