Collated Fastening Tool
Grabber Construction Products
The SuperDrive N7 is a lightweight, easy-to-use collated fastening tool designed for reaching into even tighter spaces. Its small head design allows it to fit into constricted spaces and its rounded tip won’t damage drywall or other sheathing. The tool is ideal for hanging drywall or sheathing to wood and light to heavy gauge metal. The product can be easily adjusted to handle fastener lengths from 1 to 2 inches with just the click of a button. Fine depth control adjustment is made using the tool’s SureLock fine depth control feature. The fastener is easy to operate and accommodates screw diameters from 6 to 12 gauge.

The SNC63LDXP 15-degree, 2 3/8-inch to 2 1/2-inch coil nailer is a highly specialized fastening system designed to only install continuous structural foam insulation panels. The driver blade on the tool extends about 1-inch beyond the safety element in order to drive the nail through the foam and directly into the OSB backer and ultimately, securely fastening into the framing members. A safety foot guide on the fastener ensures proper alignment and a large diameter base helps reduce damage to the foam surface when fasteners are driven. For more information, visit senco.com.
Nose Brad Nailer
The company has updated its 18 Gauge Narrow Nose Brad Nailer. Like all of the company’s finish nailers, the GRTBN200N includes metal internal parts for long term durability. Externally, several improvements have been made: the nose was tapered to improve line of sight and to allow the tool to get into tighter locations. A dry-fire lockout was incorporated so the user will never leave any unnecessary marks while installing trim. A swivel plug, selectable trigger and belt hook were also included, making it the right tool to complement Grip-Rite’s complete line of finish nails packaged in convenient 1,000 count belt clips.
