Safety plates, also commonly known as nail plates, are metal brackets used to protect wiring and piping that is passing through a stud. In most building codes, one is required to use safety or nail plates when the edge of a hole in a stud is less than 1-1/2 Inch from the edge of the stud. Our safety or nail plates come with self-nailing flanges that allow the installer to pound them in where necessary, without fumbling around with nails.
