Safety Nailer

safety nailerDrew Zirkle hopes to nail down an investment for Safety Nailer, a product that magnetically holds nails in place while protecting your fingers, in Shark Tank episode 1117. The patented product was invented by Drew’s college buddy and his wife, Daniel and Kristen Eifes. The Eifes’ designed and patented the product in 2012 when Daniel was medically discharged from the Navy.

Daniele enlisted Drew, an engineer, as a partner to help bring the product to market. The Safety Nailer is a small plastic shield that straps to your forefinger and thumb. It helps hold the nail in place magnetically while preventing injury from a “bad swing.” It also holds screws.  The original version is for nails longer than a half inch. They’re also introducing the “mini” nailer for smaller nails and screws.

The business got their initial funding from a Kickstarter campaign that raised $8663 in July 2019. Other funds came out of their own pockets and from a $5,000 prize they won at the Start Peninsula competition for entrepreneurs and inventors. Both products are available on Amazon for just $8.99. The company wants its products on hardware and home center store shelves and they’re hoping a Shark can help them nail down some distribution agreements.
