A few years ago, I tested some of the new pneumatic cap staplers and cap nailers that had come on the market. Then Paslode introduced the CS150 cap stapler earlier this year, and I decided to try it out, too. Over the past few months, my crew and I have been using this tool to install housewrap and felt paper. (It can also be used to install thin foam board, but we haven't used it for that purpose.)

Caps and fasteners. Fasteners are sold in buckets of 1,680 caps and staples. The caps come 210 to a roll and the staples 90 to a strip. We've found that three buckets of caps and staples were enough to install housewrap and felt paper on a typical 2,400-square-foot ranch house.
