From Simpson Strong-Tie
Simpson Strong-Tie introduces the Quik Stik rafter and truss fastening system, a new solution for overhead fastening designed to reduce the risk of construction work-related injuries while boosting jobsite efficiencies, with speedier and more accurate fastening of rafter and truss assemblies.
With a reach exceeding 43", the Quik Stik installation tool can eliminate the need for ladders and replace heavy pneumatic power nailers and compressor lines and the jobsite hazards and injuries they pose. Simply attach the Quik Stik to any corded or cordless drill or impact driver, load a Strong-Drive® SDWC Truss screw into the Quik Stik head, and drive the screw quickly, accurately and easily.
Designed specifically for use with the Strong-Drive SDWC Truss screw in rafter and truss connections, the Quik Stik efficiently fastens a variety of these installations via the narrow face of stud through the top plate; via the wide face of the stud through the top plate; and into trusses or rafters offset from the stud.
To provide maximum stability and ensure fast, efficient drives, the Quik Stik has a nylon overmolded head with positioning prongs and angle guidelines for a secure grip on the top plate and accurate orientation of the screw.
