A recent customer just bought a new home. We were there cleaning while she was hanging some paintings. What struck me was she was using a comb to hold the nail while hammering. I asked her what she was doing and she responded that since recovering from serious illness, her bones are very brittle. Her quick thinking to do the work herself is a great helpful household hint. A hair comb is a great tool to hold a nail to avoid getting struck by the hammer. Give it a try yourself, I have found it to be very useful.
