A Simple, No Hassle Process For Permanently Fastening to Metal.

Metal-Tack 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.

Permanent Fastening Without Drilling
or Adhesives.

Metal-Tacks are manufactured from special alloys and stainless steel and then precisely heat treated and tempered so they are much harder and tougher than the material into which they are being driven. This process creates fasteners that can penetrate metal as hard as Brinnell 240 and set themselves in metal as thin as 1/8" (even thinner if the metal is supported). They will fasten to steel, many grades of cast iron, stainless steel, brass, bronze and aluminium.

Metal-Tacks are perfect for fastening nameplates, barcode tags, wiring clips or any other light weight attachment. A portable, safe, single-impact air hammer 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 in the attachment.

No Broken Drills or Messy Cleanup

Thin drill bits are easily broken and difficult to extract from base metals. Metal-Tacks from their own hole which eliminates drilling. Adhesives require a clean surface and can fail if attached to oily or greasy surfaces. Metal-Tacks need no surface cleanup. They are not affected by dirt, oil, or grease.

  • Ground Connections
  • Balance Weights
  • Bar Coding Plates
  • Small Component Assembly

In Many Different Industries:

  • Automotive
  • Electronics
