Trunk Nails are traditionally used to fastened trunk hardware. They are driven through the outer shell against a heavy metal object such as an old iron, which is held against the interior wall. This forces the nail to bend over, which creates a very strong hold on even thin trunk walls. The bent over ends are then covered when the paper or fabric is installed on the trunk interior.
Use trunk nails to fasten structural items like hinges, handles, handle caps, etc. Use trunk tacks to fasten decorative items like rosettes & embossed metal.

Steel trunk nails
I used the nails to attach a replacement lock and also to replace missing fasteners on the leather handle hardware. I wish they came in black - I painted the nail tops black to match the hardware.
Great stuff. Good service
