On modern construction sites, nail guns have practically replaced the hammer. These tools use huge amounts of pressure to efficiently place nails in any desired surface, but a malfunction can be disastrous. It’s not unheard of a nail gun to discharge, even if the lock was in position, and this type of bad engineering can result in serious harm. Nail gun makers have a responsibility to distribute products that are safe because recalling them may not be enough.

A functional safety lock, that can withstand the massive pressure output by a nail gun is fundamental in avoiding such injuries:

Nail gun accidents can happen because of misuse or bad design. When they do happen, it’s usually one of these cases:

  • Bump-firing the gun without paying attention
  • Holding one’s hand behind the nailing surface
  • Puncturing the hand when handling an unsafe nail gun
  • Accidental discharge next to someone
  • Nail fired like a projectile after the gun slipped from the intended surface
