Hold Nail with Clothes Pin, Hair Pin or Comb to Prevent Smashing Fingers

If I had a nickle for every time I missed the nail whilst hammering, I’d be rich! Keep your precious fingers out of the line of fire by using an aid to hold nails in place. Personally, I prefer the clothes pin holder, however a bobby pin or comb works just as well! All you need to do is hold nail with clothes pin, hair pin or comb to prevent smashing fingers then pound nail into place with hammer.
