In the past, diapers were made of cloth and mothers used "diaper pins" to fasten the diapers.
This sign is reminiscent of those old fashioned diapers in that it shows the location of the diaper pins.

The handshape is a modified "3" hand.  If you know how to do the sign "NO" then this handshape and movement will come easy for you because the handshapes and internal movement of the hands is similar to that of the sign "NO."
