New Strapshot™ Nailer Addresses Growing Popularity of Metal Connectors in Construction

November 1, 2005 – New York, NY – BOSTITCH announced today the introduction of its new Strapshot™ metal connector nailer (model MCN150) during a press conference at the Warwick New York Hotel. Global Product Manager Dan Burgjohann said, “Metal connectors are to the construction industry what the I-pod is to electronics … they rapidly moved from early adoption to become almost an industry standard.” Until now, fastening connectors has been a real challenge because contractors were forced to use makeshift methods to apply them – no dedicated tool was available. “Our field research indicates that BOSTITCH now offers exactly what contractors have been asking for.” said Burgjohann.

Ideal for tight spaces and hard-to-reach areas, the compact MCN150 Strapshot™ nailer is less than 10.5" tall to fit easily between boards placed 12" on center. Its in-line magazine fits conveniently into 90˚ angled corners for added maneuverability. Strapshot™ also features a precision trip mechanism for exact placement of the nail into metal connector holes. Burgjohann explains that this tool is not a retrofit like other models. “Strapshot™ doesn’t borrow an ill-suited housing from another tool. It’s a completely new design that professional contractors helped us develop.”

Weighing only 4.8 pounds, the MCN150 is almost two pounds lighter than its closest single blow competitor. Moreover, many contractors still use makeshift framing nailers for this application, which can weigh as much as 3-1/2 pounds more. The llightweight, compact design of Strapshot™ allows a contractor to navigate around and between obstacles nimbly while performing overhead applications without pause. Also, its over-molded grip helps to maximize comfort and minimize slippage on hot or rainy days.

Strapshot™ nailers accept 1-1/2" paper tape collated nails ranging .131" to .148" in diameter.  Steel wear guards with rubber skid pads protect its housing from daily wear and tear while a tool-free 360˚ adjustable exhaust directs blow-back out and away from the user. Available in the market by late January, the MCN150 Strapshot™ nailer is expected to sell for approximately $219.
