: Help! I understand it's meaning....but where did it derive? I have also heard "nail your hide to the wall" but after reseaching....I find nothing. The closest I came was "nailing your colors to the Mast" but I don't think its the same. Thanks!!!

Guess here. People would nail the hides of animals to a wall so the hides wouldn't shrink.
