Protecting Fingers When Hammering Nails

January 4, 2012

Do your fingers hurt just thinking of you using a hammer and nails? If so, grab a clothespin and give them a break. Just place the nail in the grip of your clothespin and hammer until nail is securely in the wall, then release the tension on the nail and carefully lift up the clothespin. Finish hammering in the nail as usual.
