A Heavy-Duty Solution to Light-Load Fastening

MetalTack fasteners were specifically developed to fasten light weight parts such as nameplates and wiring clips to heavier metal products such as pumps, valves and machinery. They fasten quickly and permanently with NO DRILLING or surface preparation. Permanently embedded fasteners hold up to 250 pounds. MetalTacks are perfect for fastening nameplates, barcode tags, wiring clips or any other light weight attachment. A portable, safe, single-impact Air Tool allows the operator to position the attachment before fastening. This eliminates the problem of having to precisely locate holes in the base material and then precisely align those holes with the ones in the attachment.

Metal-Tacks eliminate costly problems associated with other fastening methods.
Adhesives are messy and may be less than permanent. Other fasteners that require drilled holes also require perfect alignment between base metal and attachment. In addition, drilling holes may cause damage by drilling too deep, and metal drill chips are difficult to completely clean up.

How MetalTack Fasteners Work:

Watch Video

Place the fastener on the air tool’s magnetic tip, press the tool against the metal surface and pull the trigger. No drilling and no clean up.

The MetalTack is placed in the hole of the attachment and against the base metal.

The MetalTack forces the base metal to form a crater shaped ring around the fastener’s point.

Fully driven, the displaced metal is permanently embedded in the fastener’s locking groove.
