Cable anchoring tool saves time and money

The StrapGun is said to provide significant time and cost savings over traditional wire-anchoring methods. Said to fasten 3½ times faster than hammer-in staples, the tool gives contractors an alternative method for installing 12/2 AWG and 14/2 AWG nonmetallic sheathed cable with one hand. A guide system properly positions the tool over the cable, eliminating the risk of pinching or cutting the cable. The plastic insulator provides a built-in depth stop for the staple ensuring the insulator is all that touches the cable. Powerfast
