Nail stakes

Round steel pins used to fasten wood forms together and securing them to the ground by pounding nails through pre-drilled holes in the pins.

They are commonly used in all flatwork applications and for attaching screed bar holder clamps in flatwork finishing. They typically are made in 1/2" or 7/8" diameters and come in lengths form 12" to 48".

See cold-rolled solid steel form pins, form pins, flat stakes, flatwork forms, and hot-rolled solid steel form pins.
