I installed “deadman” anchors, a timber running perpendicular to the wall, with a “T’ at the o-posite end, and a bag of sakrete on top of the “T” where they are spiked together. This anchors the wall so it won’t tip over.

These nails are too short for your project. I would drill 5/8” holes in the timbers and use 1/2” X 2ft rebar to stabilize them.

I do not own a drill. Is it absolutely necissary that i drill a hole Into the 8ft timbers or can i still pound spikes into them in with a mallet?

I'm just an idiot landscaper so never dawned on me to drill pilot holes. We just hammer them home! Some of my guys need to use the 5lb sledgehammer but a regular hammer works fine. However, your forearm will get tired and I don't allow hammer marks on any visible timber so the pro tip is to leave a little bit (~1/8") up and only finish all the way home after your forearm is rested.

Are these safe to use in a vegetable garden?..Saw warnings on other nails..

I. Used these as landscape timbers and landsape edging support. They Hold well No,erosion issues as they are in the ground all year

Will these work with Dimex landscape edging? Is the head big enough where it will not slip out?

I have used it on different types of plastic/composite edging and never had a problem with the nails coming out or going through.

Is the "assembled depth" the width of the nail head; 3/4"? What I need is a 10 inch nail where the nail head will fit into a wine bottle; bottle tree.

Not sure I understand your question completely but the diameter of the nail is 3/8" and the flange/head of the nail is slightly bigger

Can I use it to keep the weed cover fabric in place?

Asked by Zin March 17, 2017

It would work, but it might be some overkill. Staples for this purpose work better because they cover more surface area, but they do not go as deep as the spike.

Do you drill a pilot hole for these or just hammer straight through?

Asked by Jd April 23, 2016

It would be very tough w/out pre-drilling a pilot hole with a slightly smaller diameter drill bit. You're likely to bend the spike and/or split wood without a pilot hole. You'll also need a drill bit that is as long as the spike

Great for setting up forms for a 1-foot concrete runner for a chicken enclosure. As an extra precaution to prevent unwanted animals from digging under the runner, we used a 2-foot-wide run of 1/2" wire mesh. The wire mesh was laid on the ground and the one side of the forms was installed on top of the mesh (two or three inches of the mesh was inside the runner and covered with cement, while the remaining mesh protruded outside the runner at ground or subgrade level). That's where these spikes came in handy as an alternative to the traditional wooded stakes (can't hammer in a traditional wooden stake through 1/2" wire mesh to hold up the wooden forms used to encase the cement). In the pic, I had already covered the wire mesh outside the pour with dirt. Besides that, the spikes go into the ground much easier than a wooden stake. To keep the form from falling over, just use a spike on the inside and outside of the form. After you pour the cement, simply remove the inside stake before the cement hardens into concrete. I'll probably use spikes instead of wooden stakes for all my concrete forms.

Used them to keep wall blocks in place to prevent my dogs digging and going under the fence. One of my pug dogs somehow has the strength to move the heavy blocks; two of these per block holds them in place.
