    Crimped prong KNOWLEDGE, friends, KNOWLEDGE, and only here, to be sure. Our Wim Saris is a real miracle and
    an answer to our prayers.
    I can only echo the above--no where else but here will you find such information.

    FYI, all, the "15 bends" rule applied to the insignia at the time it was made--do not try to even bend your insignia once nowadays. (I always cringe when I see SS skulls/eagles removed just to get a look at the RZM #--I am sure I am not alone!)

    Wim Saris has revolutionized the "crimped prongs" shibbobleths, not the least with the documentary evidence that the women who put the badges on the caps were free to stick the spints through the textile, and not deploy such sharp and pointy thingies u n d e r the textile.

    Now we have the document on the durability of such splints, "prongs," and what not.....

    We live in an age of miracles.

    You are not alone at all. I share your horror as this practice.

    One of you should go find the Deutsche Industrie Normen of the epoch as these would apply to the things we collect and we might learn a great deal, in fact.

    Once more, we rejoice that our site, run by its fine leaders, and replete with such fine members, furnishes us all wonderful things to learn.

    You should not try it. I have myself found out it does not always works.
    I did it witn three (RAD) cap-insignia: one did break already after 9 times;
    the other one with 12 and the last did break with 17. And believe me I
    handled the insignia with care and did not bend them roughly! It will also
    be different when one has to push through cloth.

    When I wrote my aiguillette-book I did buy various aiguillettes to find
    out how they were constructed. I learned then a lot by doing this!
