Product Description

Amazon.com

Today’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 important result of this has been the massive rise in the use of metal connectors. These metal connectors, whether it is in the form of a hurricane tie, joist hanger, or stud plate tie are used to strengthen the weaker joint areas of a home. Their popularity has given rise to a new necessity on the jobsite, the nailer to attach all of these metal connectors.

The Bostitch STRAPSHOT Metal Connector Nailer (MCN-150) is the perfect tool for all types of metal connectors. Its exposed nail tip places the fastener point directly into connector holes for a faster, more precise application. It has a built in safety that prevents the tool from firing when not placed properly into the connector hole. The Bostitch STRAPSHOT Metal Connector Nailer (MCN-150) drives 1-1/2-inch, 35 degree Paper Tape Metal Connector Nails to secure any type of metal connector plate. These nails come specially hardened to ensure that if there is a misfire it can still drive through the metal connector plate safely.

One of the features that set the Bostitch STRAPSHOT Metal Connector Nailer (MCN-150) apart from similar nailers is its size. Its compact design fits easily into hard to reach spaces including 12 inches on center studs (MCN150 only 10-1/2 inches tall). The tool is up to 50% lighter than competitive models for reduced fatigue and added maneuverability. The in line magazine also helps maneuverability by fitting into corners easily. Its low nail lockout feature prevents jams by preventing cycling with less than 5 nails for added safety. The tool also comes with hardened steel wear guards to protect the tool and adjustable exhaust to conveniently direct air away from the user. Finally, Bostitch has included a carrying case and our exclusive 7-Year Limited Warranty.

I had been using an N88RH-2MCN for my metal connector work. As you know, the 2MCN is a standard framing nailer with a locator tip. While it works fine, it's big and heavy and doesn't always fit between joists and in tight places. The MCN150 solves that problem. It's small & light comparable to a 15ga nailer, almost half the weight of the 2MCN and it fits into tight spaces more easily. The MCN150 does not use a locator tip, but rather uses the exposed nail tip to guide you into the hole. I've had it now for about 3 months and ran several thousand nails through it without incident. I would highly recomend this tool if you do frequent metal connector work. Just remember that all metal connectors do not call for 1 1/2" nails. For longer nails, you need another gun. It comes in a nice plastic fitted case.

I've had the Bostitch MCN-150 for just about a year now. In that time it has paid for itself two or three times over. One house, with lots of straps and hangers and one deck rebuild with a couple hundred joist hangers is all it took. This tool can do in an hour what it would take a person all day to do by hand. And it saves your fingers in the process. Anyone who has tried to set tico nails in tight spaces knows what I mean. I really can't stress the time savings enough. The size of this gun is great, you can get into some amazingly tight spots and because of the innovative tip design, you can shoot at less than ideal angles.

That being said: There are two cons to this tool. It only holds small clips of nails (24, i think) so you are constantly reloading, but even with a clip of 50 you would be reloading often because of the speed that you can shoot. When nailing off long Simpson type straps, you really notice this. The other con is the fact that you can only shoot 1.5" nails. Which is a bummer here in California, where longer nails are often required. But apparently they now have the MCN-250 which addresses both of these issues. I will be ordering one of those also.

I have also used the Hitachi NR65AK, which is good, but I really think the Bostitch is better and for the price of the Hitachi you could order both Bostitch models and still be in the same ballpark.

One last thing. You can use other companies nails in a pinch. The manual stressed using only Bostitch Nails, but I was forced to use Senco at one point. They work OK but jam in the track occasionally due to burs on the nails. But they'll get you through.

We run five crews building pole barns across the pacific nortwest. We own 11 Bostitch teko nailers and 5 Hitachi teko nailers. The Bostitch guns are faster but they are useless below 35 degrees. Even with winter oil, air drier, antifreeze, bla bla bla we tried it all. The guns are crap in the cold. But awesome in the summer. At half the price of the Hitachi I still recommend if you don't need ito use in the cold.

I'm a full time contractor, and build many'a deck.. I've used other larger TECO guns and have shot thousands upon thousands of teco nails. This MCN-150 is smaller, lighter and just as fast as the larger ones, yet it fits where they don't. It doesn't pack quite as much punch, so sometimes you have to finish setting the nail in really hard wood, but for the price, the convenience of it's size and weight, I'm more than satisfied with it's performance - and with a 7 yr warranty to boot. The only downside, is it doesn't feed generic teco nails all too well, the magazine has a tighter tolerance for the strip to slide freely, so you have to help the feeder along after each shot. All in all, 2 thumbs up!

Incredible tool. Highly recommended it. Time and aggravation saved using this even 1 time is well worth the purchase. Manual nails you would be required to use will make you sick before you're even done manually nailing the first joist hanger. You'll wish you bought this nailer. I used it first time to put on 26 joist hangers each requiring 10 nails each. Accuracy was flawless and the speed was incredible. All 26 hangers and 260 nails were driven in under 30 minutes.

Quality tool. Used it for a couple deck jobs and I must have hung 100+ joist hangers, it made the difference between making and losing money. Payed for itself the first day in speed and effectiveness. I used a swivel air hose connector for the tight areas. Great addition to my air tools.

Small and efficient tool. Will pay for itself after two jobs that have a average number of hangers. One good thing is that Paslode makes nails that work in this gun also, so you don't have to use Bostitch only. It doesn't like the cold though, but overall very satisfied.

I've put in just enough joist hangers and hurricane clips to know how much "fun" holding boards with one hand, metal connectors with the other, stubby nails with the third while accurately swinging a hammer with the fourth is. So when I saw that the "pain" of buying a strap shot was a fraction of the pain of previously smashed fingers, I emailed Bostich to see if it would shoot nails through pronged truss plates like used on most residential trusses, since my current application had truss plates located under my intended hurricane clip location. Of course I got the "official" answer of "not recommended". So I gambled anyway and purchased the smaller strap shot for 1-1/2" nails and bought the beefier .148 nails. The gun is very light weight and compact as compared to my 15 year old Bostich framing nailer. Loading is simple. Finding the target hole is easy since the nail extends beyond the tip, so even when you can't see it, you can slide it around and "feel" the hole. Unlike a normal nailer that requires pressure on the sleeve around the nail, slight pressure on the exposed nail is needed to unlock the firing mechanism. The trigger is sequential trip, so no double fires. Although their specs say "It has a built in safety that prevents the tool from firing when not placed properly into the connector hole," this is either incorrect or my gun is defective. No worries, when I missed the hole in the strap, it had no issues with making new holes in 18g "Strongtie H2" hurricane clips and the lighter truss plates were no issue either. I even shot some nails to anchor 7/16 osb in a tight place my framing nailer won't fit. Through all this I was using 95 psi which is the max on my old framing nailer.Read more ›
