    PLEASE READ!! clearly there is so much confusion based on these comments. Let me clear a couple things up. First and safety is important...I do what I know and feel comfortable with. Now to address the common comments 1.) I am building a structure with an 80' truss. If you have never done that, understand the truss is just basically hanging there at the moment and the shear weight of it makes it want to fall over. I am not adding "stress: to my nail once constructed. I am pulling the truss to plumb so it can be secured properly. 2:). I am never going to hurt this "square" or triangle as some want to call it. I promise you, this is not hard on it. 3:). I am pounding in a 60d hardened ringshank. While there are a couple nail guns on the market that can shoot this nail (I own one) it is impractical and even more unsafe to be up on this structure with an air hose. They don't make a battery powered nailgun for this. With that being said, anyone that wants to send a video to me of them pounding one of these nails in with three hits as so many have claimed, I will send them something as a congratulations for being such an awesome dude...for me, I can't. 4'). FINALLY, I am nailing exactly where I want to nail. It is a 2-ply truss. I can't nail in the center or the nail will have no holding power. I am nailing in the center of the truss closest to me....the one I pointed at originally. I hope this helps some of you. I don't normally feel the need to correct so many of you or answer with a response, but I hope everyone understands, this is not going to fall over due to too much stress now, my square isn't broken, the nail is not going to break (the reason we use them for this application), and while I'll never wear a hardness in my scissor lift under these circumstances, I do agree, standing on a rail is not "safe" but how it's my best option for this situation. Most just climb the truss, I try to work out of the lift for the added safety. Thank you for coming to my TED talk Kyle

    People butthurt about him standing on the rail of the lift. I've used ladders in a lift to get higher than the lift would reach. The world isn't built by pansies, sorry. It is built by people who take calculated risks.

    You know it's illegal to step on the side railings. On that their JLG boom lift your using. Be careful posting this. Also when outside you should be using a harness that's tied off to your scissor lift. In Case you fall over the other side of that their beam you stuck your knee on. Everybody says that will never happen to me. It happens alot. Be safe out there.

    I also can’t use a hammer if my other hand is busy pulling The other board. Now Instead of pulling I just have to hammer in another nail, put another tool in my hand and push down to line up my boards on a scissor lift, oh then remove the nail used to hold the angle 📐

    Or just do it right in the first place and don’t cut corners. For instance, maybe not stand on the handrails of a scissor lift? I would rather not Jeopardize my safety over trying to get and extra couple of feet higher. You could have rented a scissor lift for the correct height needed. Don’t learn tricks because tricks are in turn shortcuts. Just saying.

    Why would it be unsafe to be up there with an air hose? Nail guns aren't heavy and as long as you approach it from the right angle you would have no issue with the line. We did stuff like this all the time and didn't even have a lift, just ladders.
