In the wall-to-wall application, The Nailer is installed 16″ on center from the top plate. By adding the thickness of the lid to measurement, i.e., 48- 5/8″, this will allow both sheets to fasten to on The Nailer at the seam.

What is used to fasten The Nailer to the framing?
If you are using the plastic Nailer you can nail, screw or use a staple gun into the drywall and framing. Not all contractors use air guns, so we have made it possible to install The Nailer using the most common of tools such as a hand staple gun. If you are using the metal Nailer you fasten it to both the drywall and the framing with a screw gun. This is true for both wood and metal framing. Use a standard drywall or tek screw.
Does The Nailer attach drywall to studs?
Yes - by attaching The Nailer to the wood or metal framing, you can then hang the drywall on both the walls and ceiling and attach it directly to The Nailer as well, using screws, staples, or nails. You can screw the drywall directly on where you placed The Nailer on the framing originally.
May I Use The Nailer on Metal Studs?
Yes. Simply fasten The Nailer to both wooden and metal studs and framing with one steel component screw or “Tek” screw. Fasten your drywall clips 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.
