If you're ever trying to install a nail or other drive-in fastener higher than you can reach, try this. Saw a short slit just a little narrower than the shank of the fasteners you're using into the end of a yardstick or other light piece of wood. Stick in one of the nails, etc. and you're in business. Once the fastener is started, pull down on the holder to free it and hammer the piece of hardware flush.
