6 Things That Are About 1.5 Inches (in) Long

1.5 inches isn’t much; it’s barely longer than a single inch, and we use and see items of that length all the time; we just don’t realize how long they are.

These 1.5-inch-long things will be listed in this article, along with interesting details about each of them.

1. Bee 

Bees are wingless insects that are related to wasps and ants. They are known for pollination and, in the case of the most well-known bee species, the western honey bee, honey production. 

Within the superfamily Apoidea, bees constitute a monophyletic lineage. They are now classified as a clade known as Anthophila.

Bees are classified into seven biological families with about 16,000 species. Some species, such as honey bees, bumblebees, and stingless bees, live in colonies, although the majority (>90 percent) of species, such as mason bees, carpenter bees, leafcutter bees, and sweat bees, live alone. 

Bees can be found in every habitat on the planet that contains insect-pollinated flowering plants, except for Antarctica.

Bees differ in size from tiny stingless bee species with workers less than 2 millimeters (0.08 in) long to Megachile pluto, the largest leafcutter bee species with females reaching 1.54 inches in length.

2. Safety pin #2

The safety pin is a type of normal pin that has a basic spring mechanism and a clasp. The clasp serves two purposes: it forms a closed loop, properly fastening the pin to whatever it is applied to, and it protects the user from the sharp point by covering the end of the pin. 

To secure pieces of fabric or clothes together, safety pins are often employed.

Safety pins or a special version with an extra protective cover called a nappy pin, or loincloth pin, are extensively used to secure cloth diapers (nappies) or modern loincloths because the safety clasp prevents the baby from being poked or pricked, while remaining an ingestion hazard.

They can also be used to repair torn or damaged clothing. Earrings, chains, and bracelets can all benefit from the addition of safety pins. 

The standard safety pin comes in five sizes, with the #2 being 1.5 inches long.

3. Sewing pin

Before stitching, sewing pins are used to hold fabric together. When attaching and cutting patterns, or stitching, they hold the cloth in place temporarily.

They’re best used with a machine because they’re quick to remove while sewing. Sewing pins exist in a variety of lengths and thicknesses, as well as various pinheads, materials, and tips, each with its function. 

Sewing pins are divided into two categories. The straight pin, also known as a hemming pin or a basting pin, is the most widely used.

The length, thickness, and type of head and tip are the important aspects of straight pins that differ and can help you determine the type you require.

The straight pin is usually made of brass, steel, nickel, or a combination of these metals and finishes. Most straight pins are 1.5 inches long. 

4. Width of a hair straightening iron 

When looking for straightening irons, you’ll see that there are a lot of various sizes to choose from. The question is which flat iron is ideal for you, which can be difficult to determine if you’re new to the game. 

The width of a flat iron isn’t the only variable; some irons have longer plates as well. However, if the iron is too long, it might be difficult to control, making it far more likely that you will burn yourself. Shorter plates are easier to manipulate than longer plates if you have a lot of hair to straighten (and safer). 

The most common plate size for hair straighteners is one inch. It’s pretty common, and it can be used on almost any type of hair (long or short). While it may not be optimal in all situations, it should suffice if you require an all-purpose hair straightener.

A large iron is defined as anything larger than a one-inch plate, and larger plates are ideal for thick or fine hair that is quite long. Irons come in a variety of sizes, including 1.25 inch, 1.5 inch, 1.75 inches, 2 inch, and even 2.5-inch types. Of course, the size you choose is a personal choice.

5. AirPods 2

AirPods 2 are just above 1.5 inches long.

AirPods give an outstanding wireless headphone experience, with lots of speak and listen time and a wireless charging case available. Simply remove them from the package and they’re ready to use with all of your devices. 

When you put them in your ears, they instantly connect, immersing you in rich, high-quality sound. It’s a bit like magic.

Optical sensors and motion accelerometers work together to autonomously regulate the audio experience, enabling AirPods to play sound as soon as they’re in your ears and activate the microphones for phone calls. You can wear one or both AirPods, and when listening to music, you can use a double-tap to play or go forward. 

AirPods are always on and always linked after a simple one-tap setup. 

It’s just as simple to use them. When you put them in your ears, they sense it and pause when you take them out.

The AirPods experience is just as amazing whether you’re using them with your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

6. A tie clip 

A tie clip (also known as a tie slide, tie bar, or tie clasp) is a type of clothing accessory that is used to secure a tie to the underlying shirt front, keeping it from swinging and ensuring that it hangs straight, giving the wearer a nice, uniform image. 

Metal tie clips are widespread, and they frequently have beautiful designs or ornaments. Some clips have a little logo on them that indicates membership in a club or other organization, or some other commemorative token, similar to how ties might be used as membership symbols.

Tie clips became popular in the 1920s when straight ties made of delicate materials like silk became more fashionable, and they generally replaced the more traditional tie pin.

A tie bar that is approximately 2.1 inches long will be ideal for ordinary neckties. It’s a small number, but it’s the goldilocks formula in action! If you’re wearing a slim tie, choose a tie bar that’s between 0.9 and 1.5 inches long!
