U shaped nails are made of high quality iron nail wire with galvanized.U-nails are known for their high strength and rust-resistant properties. The U-shaped form and the barbs on the shank allow them to securely bind materials such as wire mesh and wood together, making them popular in outdoor construction and agricultural projects.

Most people are familiar with common nails, which feature a smooth shank, a sharp diamond point, and a round head. However, there is a particular type of fastener known as a U-nail that stands out.

U-nail is a fastener of a unique shape. The shank of this particular nail isn't straight, but U-shaped with a duckbill point . Depending on whether there are barbs on the shank,  the u shaped nails can be divided into smooth U-nail(barbless u type nails) single barb u nails and double barb U-nails.

Smooth shank U-nails are relatively easy to nail into materials like wood, but also easy to pull out or fall off due to the barbless shank. The barbed U-nail(single barb u nails or double barb u nails), on the other hand, increases the difficulty of the u shaped nail being pulled out, so it can secure mesh more firmly to the wood.

As U-nails are often used to secure wire mesh fence or chicken cages to wood, the u shaped nails are also known as 'fence staples' in certain countries.

U-nails are typically made of high-quality iron wire(Q195/Q235) and feature rust-resistant properties after galvanization. And U-nails provide high strength, high load-bearing capacity, and exceptional durability, making the fence staples popular in outdoor construction and agricultural tasks.

Construction: U-nails are ideal for securing wire mesh or fencing to wood structures, including in the construction of cages, coops, or wire fencing around properties. These u shaped nails are also used in securing insulation materials and underlay in roofing.

Agriculture: In the agricultural tasks, U-nails are primarily used to secure fencing materials like wire mesh to wooden posts. This is important for securing enclosures for livestock, and for protecting crops from foraging animals. The fence staples are also utilized in building cages or coops for poultry.

U shaped nails are widely used for construction or agriculture due to the u shaped shank.
