The Safety Nailer Helps You Hit Nails, Not Fingers
Jokes about hitting your thumb with a hammer are almost ubiquitous in cartoons and slapstick comedy — and they come with a lot of truth. Hurting your hand or finger with a hammer is considered one of the most common hand injuries and one that can cost an average of $6,000 in worker's compensation claims, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
But there’s been an invention for the prevention of that: the Safety Nailer magnetic nail holder.
Created by Daniel and Kristen Eifes and pitched on ABC’s Shark Tank by Drew Kirkle in 2020, this product is designed to protect your fingers and help you to securely install nails and start screws. Kirkle ended up securing a $100,000 deal for 50% of the company and rights to a toy clacker.
