      Comments about 18 Gauge 5/16-in Crown 1-1/2-in Cap Stapler Kit:

      Used to put foam core house wrap on a large story and a half house. Holding the sheet and putting up cap staples with the other hand is something you can't do without this tool. When I bought it I thought it would misfire a lot because of the seeming complicated operation of driving a staple through a plastic cap. I was wrong. I set thousands of cap staples with NO problems at all. This tool saved many many hours, and dollars in labor. Highly recommend.

      Does the job once you figure out there is a Cap stapler(SL) and a finish stapler (SX) with the same numbers that use different size crown staples.

            Used cap stapler to install sheet insulation to the ceiling in my garage. Could add a cap and staple with one hand as far as I could reach. Was gonna use screws and tin caps, glad I didn't.

            This is the best tool for putting up foam board and house wrap. I put half inch foam board on my 20'x36' house addition and my 26'x60' garage with 10' side walls and did it in about 3hrs. The stapler worked great and is so user friendly that my 8 year old son was stapling while I was holding and he didn't have any problems. I am so glad that I bought it. I would recommend this tool to anyone that either does this kind of work for a living or to a do-it-yourselfer. A big time saver and great tool.

            New Vs. Reconditioned

            Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

            • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
            • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the accessories or consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
            • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by CPO’s Money Back Guarantee;
              New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
