Introduction: Nail Holder

Nails are too small, and I was afraid to smash my fingers with the hammer every thime I had to nail something.
But I'm not anymore, using this little, fast and easy trick my fingers are saved from beeing smashed, and all the nails get right where i wanted without problems

Additionaly, it will help you get your nails straight where you want without moving or bending them.

Step 1: Process:

Take the nail and a zip tie, put the nail inside the head of the zip tie, it will get it fixed with the same mechanism that does not allow it to be unzipped when using it regularly, and will hold your nail straight on the exact spot you want.

Now you can hold the zip tie instead of holding directly the nail having more surface of subjection as long as avoiding the risk of smashing your fingers in the process.

Step 2: Final Step

If your nail has a big Head and can't get through the zip head, just cut an edge as you can see on the picture, it will allow you to remove the zip tie. But don't worry, you will keep using the cutted zip tie to hold other nails!

Hope someone can use it!

How do you get the zip tie out from under the nail? Just kind of cut it out?

It is explained at the last step, just cut an edge or a corner, this way you can get the zip tie out from under the nail, but you dont have to toss it, you can still use it again for other nails as many times as you need it!

And that, ladies and gentelmen, is why you look to see if there are more steps. I've been spoiled by the mobile version of Instructables! Thanks
