Bostitch Strapshot Metal Connector
Installing joist hangers is a pretty tedious task. If you do it by hand, you’re forced to swing a hammer between two joists which leaves you with the nail driving power of your six-year-old daughter. Your other option is to use a palm nailer, but you’re going to spend the afternoon with the sound of a machine gun beating away at your ears, not to mention that it can be tricky getting those nails to go in straight. Well, the folks at Bostitch have been kind enough to give us a third option for this scenario.
Recently, they’ve come out with the Strapshot Metal Connector. Weighing less than five pounds, the Strapshot won’t tire your arm out, and it tool is built so that it can easily fit between joists that are 12” on center. The lead nail tip is exposed to allow for precise placement and the body design allows it to angle into tough spots nicely. This looks like yet another quality entry to the Bostitch nail gun catalog.
The Strapshot retails for around $200.

One of the best tools I bought this year. I have built a barn, two additions, three porches. This gun has never failed to work as advertised. Really fast, with more than enough power.
