"Tacks" in context

Tacks are small fasteners typically used in carpentry and other small projects. They are made of metal and come in various lengths, sizes, and shapes. Tacks are mostly used for attaching fabric, paper, and other materials to wood or other materials. Tacks make a small puncture in the material and then push the legs of the tack into the material while the head of the tack remains exposed to hold the items together. Common types of tacks include flat-headed, round-headed, diamond-shaped, and brad tacks. Tacks can also be used to cover holes or cracks on a wall surface.
