FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS USED TO FASTEN THE NAILER TO THE FRAMING?
MUST I USE THREE HALF-INCH STAPLES TO FASTEN THE NAILER TO THE FRAMING?
The rule of two or three half-inch staples only applies to hand staple guns because that is usually the longest staple that can penetrate THE NAILER and still go in all the way. It was this greatest common denominator in which THE NAILER was tested. However, it is ideal when using pneumatic guns to install THE NAILER to use the broadest crown staple like a shingle staple or a nail with a flat head like a drywall nail or roofing nail. Be sure that the penetration is one (1″) inch or greater. Under these conditions, it is only necessary to use one staple or nail.
MAY I USE THE NAILER ON STEEL STUDS?
Yes. Simply fasten THE NAILER to the stud or top plate with one steel component screw or “Tek” screw. Fasten THE NAILER through the down stem with the beveled edge. This product has been designed and engineered so you will never have to go up on top or back behind a wall to put in the backing.
