  Tacktite Tack Strips

The tacking strips have a deep cut serration in the tacks for greater holding power. Tacktite is also available with the M-Tack, which has larger barbs for plywood and other materials that require superior grip. The tack strips, which are available with 6, 8, 10, 12 and the new 20 ounce tack, are pre-cut to any length.
