Nails & Tacks

Nails and tacks are used in construction and woodworking. A nail is shaped like a pin, a metal pin and used as a fastener or a peg to hang something. Nails are made of steel and often dipped and coated to prevent corrosion and improve adhesion. Nails are hammered in a work-piece, either with a hammer, a pneumatic gun or else a small explosive primer. A nail holds materials together by friction. Tack strips are thin pieces of wood, stocked with hundreds of sharp nails or tacks used in carpet installation. Tack strips grip the carpet and hold it in place and give it a finished look. Tacks are easy, efficient, effective and long-lasting and provide quality.
