While they do make for super straight wicks (if you make sure they aren't crooked upon arrival, which some of mine were and were very hard to straighten out) but unfortunately they DO NOT FIT snug inside the bottom of the flared votive mold... They move when you pour in wax so you can't center them yourself either. What this means is that when you pull your candle out of the mold one side has the wax at a lower level than the side the wick pin shifted to. Then when you pop the wick pin out, it breaks the wax that went into the gaps left by the wick pin... This makes for jagged bottomed votives that are a pain to try to level out on a hot plate. It's very frustrating. Everyone else seems to love them so I assume I just got a bad batch and will be contacting customer service.

Love them, works great! Just FYI, make sure the wick pins are straight, a few were "crooked" when I got mine. Just the look of your votives will be affected

I love the wick pins and would never make another votive without them, but there is a trick I learned to make removal easier. Remove the pins while the wax is still warm - a slight tap on a hard surface and the pin comes right out. If I wait until the candle is completely cool, it takes much more effort to get the wick pin out.

I love these! They give me a nice centered wick and I just grab them and pull the votive right out of the mold.

These Votive Wick Pins are great. I highly recommend them for super straight wicks.
