The Founders of Safety Nailer!

The founders of Safety Nailer are Drew Zirkle and Kristen. Kristen is a civilian accountant for the air force and wife of Dan Eifes, the designer of Safety Nailer. Drew Zirkle is an engineer and he was the one who took the design by Dan for production. Drew and Kristen together founded Safety Nailer, LLC.

The Story behind Safety Nailer!

Dan Eifes was a Civil Engineer in the Navy, during one of the stand-down one of the officers was demonstrating the right grip of holding the chisel to prevent the hammer from hitting the hand. This led to Dan thinking of all the people who get hurt trying to hammer nails. As a result, He began developing designs for the safety nailer. Thus by the time Dan was medically discharged from the navy, he had already perfected the design and secured a patent.
