Have you ever had to nail something high over your head but you couldn't quite reach to get that nail started? Here are a few tips that can make the job easier.

Try placing the nail in the claws of the hammer and start it from that position.
Or, if you happen to have a small disk magnet, you can place it on the head of the hammer and the nail will actually stick right to it.

Lastly, put a small notch in a thin strip of wood and let that hold the nail for you.
