"Tacker" in context

Tacker is a tool used to secure objects, mainly in woodworking. It is a small hand-held metal tool that is designed to, when tacked into wood, leave a dimple that the point of a nail can then easily fit into. A hammer is then used to drive a nail securely into the woodwork.

Tackers are generally made from metal, such as steel or aluminum, with a rubberized grip handle. The most commonly used is the "standard" tacker, which is a single-handed tool with a pointed nose and curved jaws. It is used to grip the nail in place while tacking.
