Bostitch builds their tools to perform and last, and the SL1838BC-1 18 Gauge Cap Stapler is guaranteed to live up to their hard earned reputation of quality. Designed to secure felts, house wrap, foam insulation and other thin materials, the SL1838BC-1 fires a 1" diameter cap in addition to the staple. This gives the fastener extra holding power with less chance of punching through the material. The most important setting when firing capped fasteners is the depth adjustment; fire it too deep and you'll punch through your material, not deep enough and the material won't be securely fastened. The SL1838BC-1 features a unique "Dial-a-Depth" adjustment system that allows precise control over fastener depth without the need for a compressor adjustment. Other features like an integrated belt hook, lightweight design and oil-free drive system make this fastener worthy of a legendary name like Bostitch.

works just like its supposed to
By Mike from Waterloo, Ia on February 7, 2012
I purchased this cap stapler in anticipation of roofing my house. Im not a contractor so I wanted to buy the tools so the job would go as fast as possible. Ive found lots of uses since so the purchase was definately worth it.
easy to use and load
the caps seem kinda expensive. I shop around the internet and always find better prices than in the store

I would recommend this item to a friend.
