I've seen a lot of nails in my 72 years, but never one like this. This was toe-nailed into a shelf in my travel trailer. It was loose so I pulled it out. Does anyone know if this type nail has a specific function?

It's the type of nail used in picture hangers.

Thanks! Mystery solved. The previous owner must have wanted to stabilize the shelf and that was the only nail he could find.

Definitely, a nail used in conjunction with a hangar usually brass, for hanging pictures.

I have used many picture hooks, but none with a fancy nail.

What is the purpose?

The picture hangs on the HOOK. How does having a nail with a fancy washer, that looks like a sprocket, help the picture stay put? Seems from the pictures, that it just forces the head out farther...in the way.

Dont know what to tell you other than this type of nail comes with the brackets for picture hanging. The package is labeled Professional Pucture Hangers by Ook. Www.ook.com
