These days’s homes are stronger than ever. More knowledgeable homeowners, natural disasters, and stricter building codes have led the industry to adopt better ways of building houses. One necessary result of this has been the huge upward thrust in the usage of metal connectors. These metal connectors, if it is within the form of a hurricane tie, joist hanger, or stud plate tie are used to fortify the weaker joint areas of a home. Their popularity has given upward thrust to a new necessity at the jobsite, the nailer to glue all of these metal connectors.
The Bostitch STRAPSHOT Metal Connector Nailer (MCN-150) is the easiest tool for all sorts of metal connectors. Its exposed nail tip places the fastener point straight away into connector holes for a faster, more precise application. It has a built in safety that forestalls the tool from firing when not placed properly into the connector hole.
