    Also called "cut nail" or "clout nail," an inter-fibrous friction-fastening device having a rectangular cross-section, and a wedge-shape along the longitudinal axis.

    Clinch nails are intended to be 1/8"-1/4" longer than the thickness of the materials being nailed, so that the point when pounded through the materials and onto a metal clinch plate would bend back upon itself, forming a very strong connection.
