Are the nails you can purchase at harbor freight any good? i am going to start a small roofing project and for the price, the harbor freight roofing nails seem to be a great buy. But if for any reason they are no good I will get a better brand. If they are not a good brand, can your recommend one?

After returning nails made in "who knows where" after half the !#@!$#% box bent in half, I found and used only Maze nails to finish building my home. Made in the USA.

I have no affiliation with this company, I just like their nails! Not one bent nail yet!
(OK, ok... ONE..... but the one that hit that through-bolt doesn't count. :laughing: )

Harbor Freight fasteners are probably no worse than box store high margin brands. That said, don't skimp on fasteners. Those that fracture, break, bend or whatever are really not saving you any money and they are dangerous short term an over their lifetime in place.
