English term or phrase: bobby pin
Please help, what is the right Albanian word for "bobby pin" (a flat wire hairpin whose prongs press tightly together; used to hold hair in place) ? I've got "karficë flokësh" as a variant, but maybe some better word exists? Thanks in advance.

disagree  Eva T: Elvana, do you realize that you are not using any of the Albanian special characters? This is absolutely not professional, plus confusing to people who do not know Albanian. How can you translate like this?
