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.

By Tom VINE VOICE on June 12, 2006
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 was renting a Pasload Positive Placement nailer to install decking hardware and decided to purchase this nailer because it was smaller, lighter, and less than half the price. When I opened the box and looked it over I noticed the caseing on the bottom of the gun where the air hookup is had a small crack in it. I purchased a new bottom piece and air seal O-ring online for $8.00 and replaced it myself instead of dealing with the Amazon headache of exchanging it. When taking the gun apart and reassembling it you realize the whole gun is made of thin aluminum and plastic, where the Pasload version is all solid metal. As far a using it goes, it works great if your gentle with it. It's a great gun for a homeowner and parts are cheap, but I would pay the extra money for a Pasload gun if I were doing a lot of contractor work.

The MCN-150 is almost perfect with only one flaw. The last few nails will not fire and a new stick must be pushed in behind them to resume.The unit seems to be well designed and delivers a good nail in the right place. You do have to uses their nails but it really speeds up the accurate install of metal straps. It takes the other gun they make to get a longer nail out so you would have to have two loaded up to run with just these units. Long nails with real hammers still works great too. I'm a one man band so this unit is a big help to me. This unit works fine off my small Porter-Cable compressor. The unit is small and does well in tight spots. It would be great if it held thirty times the nails it does but of course that three foot magazine would be a drag. LOL Carry all the nail-sticks you can in your pocket and if your belt ends up on your boots, pull your pants up and cut back on the packing. Nail-On!

Had this product for over a year, gets used at least twice a week by our crews and haven't had one issue. Extremely light and fits in the smallest of spots. Best Metal connector I've ever used. Coming from a construction business with 30 years plus experience we highly recommend

Over 400 straps and clips. 3000 nails to date. Not a single misfire and no jams. Good solid case. Dropped it twice onto concrete, chipped the concrete. The hanger works well. I recommend getting a swivel connection for the hose. The smallish nail strip are a pain, but a longer clip would make it harder in tight spaces. We used to use a palm nailer and this is much better.
