INTRODUCTION

The terms included in these definitions are listed in alphabetical order under nine headings to facilitate quick reference and in certain cases are sub-categorized. They are intended to apply to metal nails. Omitted are terms relating to tacks, pins, drift pins, dowels, studs, spikes, staples, and other fasteners, such as nail plates. Also omitted are terms relating to the testing and the performance of nails, that is, their drivability, withdrawal resistance, lateral load transmission, creep, protrusion resistance, and splitting; and methods of use, such as face, toe, side, and end-nailing, spacing, loading conditions, etc. These subject matters will be covered in a separate definition of terms relating to mechanical fasteners.

Common acceptance and usage are the basis for most of the definitions listed. In some instances, this common usage results in more than one definition for a given term. In other cases, registered trademarks have become generic in nature; hence, they are included among the terms listed.

Any such listing cannot be complete. As additional terms are referred to the Society's attention, they will be included.

An asterisk (*) behind the name of a nail indicates that this particular nail type is described in Specification F1667.

Whereas dimensions are normally not part of a definition, they are included in this standard because they are essential in fully describing the fastener under consideration.
