The Bostitch SL1838BC makes it easy for you to correctly install felt, house wrap, foam board insulation, and more into sidewall and roof sheathing. A plastic cap increases the surface area of the fastener, so you can be confident that exposure to wind and weather won’t harm your work. And thanks to the SL1838BC’s precise operation, you won’t have to worry about damage to the material during application.

Trigger Selection and Adjustable Depth of Drive
The SL1838BC features an oversized foot on the triggering system to help compensate for uneven building surfaces, as well as to provide a sequential/contact/off trigger selection. The stapler also features adjustable depth of drive, which lets you set staples to desired depths quickly and easily.

Designed for Comfort and Safety
At an easy-to-handle 3.9 pounds, the Bostitch SL1838BC can be used for long periods of time and in overhead positions with minimum operator fatigue. The overmolded rubber grip offers increased comfort for all-day projects, and the rear exhaust prevents blowback in your face. Additionally, a handy belt hook allows you to quickly store the tool out of the way, freeing up your hands for other work.

Very Disappointed This is a great gun. Makes quick work of house wrap and roof felting. The rafter hook on it is perfect for hooking it on your belt when you need both hands. The downside for me a contractor, is it don’t hold very many staples an caps. When you get going good you run out. Other then that it’s a great gun. Very much recommended.

Having put up a fair amount of roofing felt, house wrap, and campaign yard signs with a hammer-tacker, I’d never do the first two that way again. The felt gets torn and the wrap rips. (Smacking the candidate on the forehead is still the only way to go.) The cap nails do a good job, but that a two-handed, slow operation, and has a cost to fingers. I purchased this cap stapler to do a FC siding job, so it’s been used on a bit of felt and a lot of Hardie-wrap, and it was definitely money…
