Somewhere between a staple and a nail, these strange strips of fasteners that look like unbent, raw staples are in fact headless pin nails for a nail gun. The nail gun itself acts like any other, driving the metal fastener into the object using compressed air, flammable gases, electromagnetism or a small explosive charge. However, these thin and delicate pins are used by furniture makers and other craftspeople to attach fabrics, beading, decorative trim and other relatively fragile materials because they are less obvious and leave much smaller holes than larger nails, giving a much better-looking finished product. They are also less likely to split small pieces of wood, for example, with the force of their insertion.
