It looks threaded, almost like a screw, and makes wonder if one can just hammer it in, or need any special tools. I am thinking about using for small home owner project. Thanks in advance.

Answer: 
These can be hammered in with a standard hammer. What appears to be screw threads are what is called "ring shank". they help keep the nail from pulling out.

Answer: 
Hi JSMT, this is used to hold down the roofing paper and into the plywood. The plywood is the reason this has what is called ring shank.
You just hammer these in. The ring shank helps hold better in plywood.

Answer: 
Great question! In addition to attaching underlayment to the decking of your roof, you can also use the Plastic Cap roofing nail to install foam board insulation.
Thank you, and have a great day!

Answer: 
Available in a couple of different lengths. One inch length is plenty long unless you are reroofing over an existing comp roof. Use another brand though, these disintegrated after a couple of years.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by They are felt nails Felt nails what more can you say expect five percent to be rejects October 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by complete junk flimsy garbage. almost every one bends and collapses (the metal, not the plastic). you might as well be trying to drive in toothpicks. March 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by plastic disintegrated I had a tub of these and a tub of another brand (blue plastic) left over from a job two years ago. When I went to use these, the orange plastic disintegrated into tiny pieces. They were stored on a shelf in my garage, so were not exposed to ultraviolet light. The blue ones were fine. June 28, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Standard for this type of roofing nail. These nails are never as easy to use as conventional roofing nails. This brand is as good as any of this type (plastic capped ) that I have used. August 31, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ok These are ok but need some work to be perfect. Work good April 26, 2013
