National Nail’s STINGER® CH38-2 Cap Hammer Wins 2017 Pro Tool Innovation Award

National Nail's newly upgraded STINGER (R) CH38-2 Cap Hammer roof fastening system has won a Pro Tool Innovation Award for 2017. The CH38-2 is an economical, non-pneumatic cap fastener that eliminates the hassle of hoses and compressors and improves safety on roofing jobs.

GRAND RAPIDS, MI - SEPTEMBER 19, 2017 - National Nail announces that its newly upgraded STINGER®CH38-2 Cap Hammer has won the coveted 5th Annual Pro Tool Innovation Award for 2017 in the Hand Tools-Hammer Tackers-Staplers category. Fine-tuned for durability and performance, the CH38-2 Cap Hammer is an economical, non-pneumatic cap fastener that eliminates the hassle of hoses and compressors, which also improves safety for roofing jobs.

“We are thrilled to receive this recognition from the Pro Tool Innovation Award for our redesigned STINGER CH38-2 Cap Hammer, which provides an economical but effective roof fastening solution for a fraction of the cost of a pneumatic gun,” said W. Scott Baker, CEO, National Nail.

The Pro Tool Innovation Awards started in 2013 to recognize innovation in the residential and commercial construction industries, judged by a panel of tool and media professionals from across the United States and Canada. With a goal of recognizing manufacturers for releasing tools that are going to change the way professionals work, these products must stand out in the crowded market of power tools, hand tools, accessories, and fasteners. A Pro Tool Innovation Award winner will either offer more features, or be more ergonomic, stronger, lighter, faster, longer-lasting, or a better value than the competition.

“We recognize tools that provide excellent value, advanced features, and the newest innovations. If you’re using a Pro Tool Innovation Award winning tool, you know it can really get the job done!” said Clint DeBoer, program manager.

With the holding power of a 1-inch cap and staple and speed and ease of a hammer tacker, the CH38-2 is perfect for fastening house wrap, rolled insulation, and roofing felt. It has been enhanced with increased internal handle strength, an improved staple design, track and spring, stronger welds and an added handle grip--all for maximum reliability and performance.

The 2017 Winners and Finalists, including the CH38-2 are listed at and will be mentioned in the Pro Construction Guide and Pro Remodeler magazines later this year.
