Building requires tough tools and even tougher nails, so when you choose round head framing nails you want ones that won't let you down-especially when people's safety is at stake. Hitachi offers full round head framing nails with the superior holding power you need for. When you need strong nails that meet ANSI safety standards, choose Hitachi Plastic Strip Framing Nails. The strength of a nails hold is in the size/length of the shaft and not necessarily in the head of the nail. That being said, the full round head nail is considered a traditional choice because we are all familiar with it and have probably worked with on projects with them thousands of times. Whether you choose a clipped head or full round head you can be assured the hold is the same.
