Application April 14, 1941, Serial No. 388,386 2 Claims. (oi. 8'5-.-i29) The present invention relates to a fastening tion of finish coats of plaster or other surface device for attaching panels of plasterboard or media. the like upon a frame in such manner as to make Figure is a view in horizontal cross-section provision for relative movement to the sheet of taken on the lines 5-5 of Figure 4. plasterboard with respect to other sheets and 5 Figure 61s an isometric view of amodified form with respect to the studding or joist to which it of cap. is attached. Referring more particularly to the disclosure The natural thermal expansion and contracin the drawing, sheets of plasterboard I or simition of plasterboard is recognized. In addition lar material are attached to studdings'2 and it is well-known that studdings or joists made 10 headers or foot rails of a frame as shown in of Wood are subject to considerable contraction Figure 4. and expansion, and in addition other causes such In operation, the nail 3 is driven through the as uneven settling of the building frequently plasterboard and into the wood frame at intercauses undue pressure upon the wallboard and vals of approximately eight inches.

The modified form of cap In the drawing: shown in Figure 6 is adapted to be applied to Figure 1 is an isometric view of one of the elethe nail after the nail has been driven into the merits of my novel fastening device. studding. It is provided with flanges ID to hold Figures 2 and 3 are isometric views of such it in place over the nail head 4 and onto the element provided with a cap for such element. plasterboard I. It is to be observed that either Figure 4 is an isometric view showing sections form of cap which I show may be stamped from of wallboard or other siding secured in place by a single piece of metal. By having the nail and my novel fastening device prior to the applicacap assembled in one unit, much labor in attaching the wall board may be saved inasmuch as but one operation is required in driving the nail and cap home.
After the caps are fastened in place over each of the nails, a finish coat of one or two coats of plaster is applied to the panels, covering the panels I and the caps 1. I have found that it is preferable to have the crown of the cap slightly rounded to obviate the danger of being dislocated by the trowel when the plaster coat is added.
Experiments and tests have shown that with this invention the plasterboard and plaster are held to the framework securely but withsufiicient yieldability with respect to lateral strain upon the plasterboard and plaster to prevent cracks in the plaster or to reduce the same to a minimum.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure as Letters Patent is:
I claim:
1. In a device of the class described, the combination of a nail having a shank, pointed at one end and provided with a head at the other end, an approximately fiat cap of substantially greater area than and covering the head of the nail, and anchoring projections on the cap normally spaced from the periphery of the head to allow limited movement of the head within the plane of the cap.
2. In a device of the class described for attaching wall surfacing to a frame, a nail having an enlarged head, and an enlarged substantially conical shaped portion on the shank at a point intermediate the point and head of said nail to provide an opening in said wall surfacing larger than the diameter of said shank, and a substantially fiat cap for said nail head provided with anchoring projections for attachment to said wall surfacing and permitting co-planar movement of said nail head within the confines of said cap.
