Troubleshooting Nylon Nail-It

Troubleshooting Nylon Nail-It

Purchase Nylon Nail-It Anchors

Problem: In cold weather the nylon nail-it breaks.

Trouble Shooting Tips:

  1. The anchor body of the nylon nail-it when it subjected to cold temperatures becomes very brittle.  If the anchor body is struck with a hammer during installation the anchor body can shatter into pieces
  1. Make sure that the nylon-nail it is at least at room temperature before installation.

Problem: The nail rust after being installed outdoors.

Trouble Shooting Tips:

  1. The anchor body of the nylon nail-it is rust resistant, the nail, however, is made from carbon steel and zinc plated and will rust over time.
  1. The mushroom-headed nylon nail-it is available with an aluminum or nylon nail that makes the nylon nail-it completely rust resistant.

Problem: Nylon Nail-it is not sitting tight against the surface of the item being attached.

Trouble Shooting Tips:

  1. The hole in the base material must be drilled deep enough to allow the nylon nail-it to be full installed in the hole.
  1. Measure the thickness of the material and then drill the hole in the base material a minimum of 1/4” deeper than the expected depth of embedment of the nylon nail-it.
  1. The round-headed and mushroom-headed nylon nail-its length is measured from underneath the head.  The flat headed nylon nail-it is measured as an overall length including the head
  1. Clean the hole of all dust and debris using a wire brush and vacuum.

Problem: Once installed the nylon nail-it is not holding in the base material.

Trouble Shooting Tips:

  1. Make sure the correct diameter bit is being used.  A 3/16” nylon nail-it requires a 3/16” hole and the 1/4” diameter nylon nail-it requires a 1/4” hole.
  1. The hole in the base material must be drilled using a hammer drill with the hammer drill switched to the hammer and rotation mode.
  1. The bit used must have carbide tipped and meet ANSI standards.  An ANSI standard bit ensures tolerance between the hole diameter and the anchor diameter.
