The HurriQuake NailDecember 3rd, 2006
Fresh on the heels of the Functional Utility Bar, the folks at Stanley/Bostich have developed a better nail. Popular Science has named the Hurriquake® nail as its innovation of the year. The nail is designed to help prevent the roof from lifting off a house during a hurricane, and it also works against the shear forces caused by earthquakes. It looks like a good thing, but I can’t believe they actually patented the idea of a larger nail head.
