    I just throw the nail up and one shot it like Bob Villa. Nice instructable though for those without Bob Villa's martial arts like construction prowess.

    Needle-nose pliers are better, you can see the head and the tip. I wrap a rubber-band around the handle so that the pliers stay closed on their own. I can always apply more pressure than is necessary to keep the pin/nail held up if I so choose.
