UFFY Deco Nailer

To provide some background, decorative nails are typically found along the edge or seam of an upholstered piece of furniture. Deco nails look similar to a thumbtack, but have a cupped head (resembling an umbrella) when viewing from the side. Before the deco nailer was an option, decorative tacks were hammered into upholstered furniture one by one; a process both time consuming and tedious.

Decorative Nails

Thankfully, Uffy Tools introduced the TH-T-DECO1 pneumatic decorative upholstery nailer, which eliminates the redundant hammering of deco nails into upholstery trim. What really makes this Uffy deco nailer unique is its operation. Simply add a handful of correct size (7/16" head by 1/2" shank) deco nails into the magazine, and the tool will sort out the rest during operation.

What happens inside the magazine is something similar to a tornado, as the tool aligns each decorative nail into an automatically fed magazine.

No more expensive collated tacks. No manual alignment.

The beauty of this Uffy - it does all the work for you. Just make sure you have an air compressor that can provide 6.72 CFM at 90 PSI.

    Can this nail gun be used with 1009 nails or D.A.D.S nails? They typically say 1/2 inch.

      We only recommend using the UFFY DECO nailer with 1/2" French natural upholstery deco nails.

      Hi Wayne, if you're referring to using the TH-T-DECO1 mentioned in the blog, it requires an air compressor that delivers 6.72 CFM at 90 PSI. We recommend sticking to the manufacturer's guidelines.
