Product sheet

Description / Price

Staple-like nail made of stainless steel with pressed-on anti-twist protection on the nail shaft, 3.5 mm thick, standard length 55 mm (KN 04055), special length 35 mm (KN 04040), see below. >>> Price



Especially for the selective fixation of climbing plants according to cable system 1010. Also for the final fixation of wire (or wire rope as an Easy Kit, up to 3 mms of diameter) in free-standing climbing aids, planks of half-timbered houses, etc... Also as an intermediate holder, whereby the less expensive staples are recommended. Can also be used as a hook in the vineyard. Suited for hammering into softwood and hardwood, also into the end-grain. For massive (solid) wood as well as for cladding. In connection with dowel DH 06040, KN 04055 is also suitable for wall mounting - with low loaded pressure aids. Please also refer to the linked information to select appropriate eyebolts.



In most softwood, the nail can be driven in at the marked points without pre-/pilot drilling. When hammering in, a mandrel (aluminum) or a pressure plate should also be placed between the hammer and the cramp nail, because direct contact with the hammer can lead to rust spots (corrosion) as a result of material mixing at the hammering point. Pilot drill into hardwood, preferably with a diamter of 2.5 mm, or with Robinia, even 3.0 mm; here, a test drilling and test nailing are appropriate. Alternatively, after hammering in, the striking surfaces on the eyelet can be slightly sanded with fine sandpaper in order to remove any iron residue that may have been transferred from the hammer head. In open- wind positions and using only one-sided tension of wire frames, the wires join together with staples on the side turned into the wind to prevent later damage. 

In locations/conditions open to the wind and with only one-sided covering of the wire frames, the wires and staples are placed on the side facing the wind in order to prevent them from tearing out later. 


Special Features

In most cases, wires are only fed through the loops of the staple nails and are then then individually 'twisted' and thus fastened separately. If wires or ropes are, however, directly attached to the nail hook, this should be hammered in as deeply as possible, so that the bent end is firmly in the wood. Then, the resulting eyelet can absorb more load. When hardwood is used, then pilot drill for the bent end, preferably with a cardboard template. The two shank parts of the nail that reach into the wood should then be driven in slightly offset to the grain direction of the wood in order to minimize crack stresses. To prevent corrosion: after hammering in, sand the striking surfaces of the eyelet a little with fine sandpaper to remove any iron residue that may have been transferred from the hammer head.  

The special size KN 04035 is available as a pack of 1,000 pieces or more.
