Improved tacks

Improved tacks are sharp, wide tacks with a large head. Use 3/8" (15-16mm) improved tacks for fastening webbing onto a sturdy frame.

Fine tacks

Fine tacks are sharp, thin tacks with smaller heads than improved tacks. Use 3/8" (15-16mm) for attaching webbing or hessan when the frame is not as sturdy and may split with thicker tacks. Use 1/2" (13mm) tacks for general tacking, thick or multiple fabric layers. Use 3/8" (10mm) for fabrics and linings. Use 1/4" (10mm) for delicate work. Fine tacks are made from steel, zinc or copper.

Gimp pins

Sharp, very thin tacks with tiny heads. Gimp pins are used for attaching gimp braiding or for fine work on delicate frames. Comes in various colours. 

Decorative nails

Upholstery nails with dome heads. Decorative nails are available in various colours, sizes and designs. Used on outside panels where the nails will be visible, or when a decorative elements is wanted. Use a space setter tool to evenly space.
