I use hard pins and fence staples. Hard pins are about 1" long
with a small flat head made for installing wall angle to block
walls, but I use them for both block and drywall. Nail them
through the wall angle to establish elevation, if they hit a stud
that's great. Hold a fencing staple with one leg at the top of
the wall angle at a steep angle. When done correctly, one leg of
the fence staple slides on the face of the wall angle and the
other slides on the back face of the drywall, a bit like a paper
clip, pulling the grid tight to the wall. This method saves
having to find the studs and let's you concentrate on pulling the
angle tight to the wall where it needs it.
