This gadget will keep your fingers from being smashed by a hammer when you are trying to pound in a nail. Great idea. I got it as a stocking stuffer. I believe it will do what it was created to do.
Not happy

I was under the impression that this gadget would allow me to work with small, SHORT brads, screws etc. It is thick so can't accommodate small nails etc. Who needs help driving or setting screws ;that are at least 1 inch in length.
Save those fingers!

I almost feel funny admitting how many times I have hit my own finger in pursuit of being "handy." This tool is just what I needed!
Great small gift

I gave this to my father for his birthday. He and my mom downsized when they retired and now live in a two bedroom condo. Small, unique gifts like this are perfect!

Magnetic Nail Holder

This magnetic nail holder lends a hand to make hammering easier and safer. It grips a nail for you, so you can preload one before you start swinging, and it keeps it straight and prevents it from buckling. (Try it with screws, too.) It also provides a better target to aim for. Miss hitting the nail? Don’t worry, impact-resistant ABS plastic can take it. Store the holder on your hammer between jobs.

Safety Nailer

Safety Nailer Makers Drew Zirkle and Dan Eifes leaned on their backgrounds as civil engineers—as well as Dan’s as a safety officer in the Navy—to make a safer way to hold and hammer nails. Along with their wives, Cori and Kristen, they created this simple and clever magnetic holder.

It protects fingers and makes it easier to get nails started, and secures a nail (or screw) while keeping it straight and preventing buckling. The strike plate gives you a bigger (and eye-catching) target to aim for. Miss the nail? No worries. The durable holder is made from impact-resistant ABS plastic that can handle a hammer.

The strap-on design fits on left- or right-handed folks and is small enough that it won’t get in your way of what you’re working on. Store it on your hammer between jobs. more Their Story
