Hi

One of the spells favored to guard the home from the entrance of evil is to hammer three nails in the shape of a triangle (one point up) on the outside of the front door.

I take it to mean that you should hammer three nails so that they create a triangle and one of them should be hammered point up (the sharp part up)?

Is it what it says?

No. It means the nails should be arranged like this:

rather than, for example:

I see. Thanks.

Should it be railroad nails or any older nails?
