Description / Price
Large staples (U-nails) made of high-grade steel V2A, 3.5mm in diameter, length: 35 mm, 10 staples per pack. >>> Price.
These massive steel staples serve as a strong intermediate support with increased insertion depth (elongated prongs) for securing wire and cable of any diameter (easy construction style); can sometimes be used for the permanent fastening of 2mm of rope, but we generally recommend the stronger staple nail, eyelet nails or even eyebolts. For solid wood (free-standing espaliers, pergolas, etc.), but especially for deep anchoring in end-grain hard wood. Also good for the construction of strong small-animal aviaries, or for attachment of reinforcement fabric/netting, etc. in sandstone renovation. Please also refer to the information we've provided on selecting appropriate eyebolts.
When driving in the staples, do so at a slight angle to the wood's grain to prevent cracks. In hardwood, plastic, etc., pre-drill if necessary. When using multiple staples it is best to use a self-made drilling template that demarcates the distance between holes. Once the staples have been fully secured, sand down their visible surface with fine sandpaper to remove any iron grains carried from the hammer head (thus preventing future corrosion).
