Pinit
and
Pin-It

Pinit and Pin-It were both similar constructional systems using wood strips held by split pins. They were both made in the UK by the same company.

Pinit was sold from around 1921 to 1930. Pin-It followed on from 1930 to at least 1932. It used slightly thicker wood strips and larger split pins.
