Nail Gun Safety Tips

Yes nail guns are highly versatile for any tool job and have replaced the traditional hammer mostly; still there are certain safety measures which everyone from professionals to amateurs should follow to avoid injuries while using their power nailers. Happy nailing.

1) Understand the difference between sequential trip trigger and contact trip triggers. Be sure you are using the right one for the right work.

2) When trying to accurately place a fastener with a contact trip nail gun, be as sure of your target and the backdrop as you would if you were firing a pistol. Keep body parts out of the possible line of fire.

3) When using a pneumatic nail gun, be alert to the added hazard of the air hose. Compressed air has its own hazards, but having an air hose stretched through a construction site adds to the already hazardous environment.

4) When holding a work piece to be nailed, be aware that the force of the nail gun will drive through any obstacle in the wood like knots or other fasteners. Keep you hand at least the length of the fastener you are shooting away from the muzzle at all times when joining wood.

5) Don’t use rusty fasteners. Using old nails in a nail gun can not only damage the gun, but they can send rust and scale out toward the operator. Be sure to use new clean nails for safe operation.

6) Wear your safety glasses or face shield. Not only can the nail gun send errant nails your way, but the force of the nailing operating can splinter the substrate as well.

7) Maintain the nail gun properly. Regular maintenance and lubrication will reduce the possibility of jams and misfires that require potentially dangerous repairs and un-jamming procedures.

8) Read and follow all the manufactures safety rules and procedures.
