Metal Connector Nailers

Kyocera Senco Industrial Tools introduces 2 metal connector nailers designed to fully and consistently sink nails in today’s toughest substrates.


The JN91H1 and JN91H2 pneumatic metal connector nailers, which are used for fastening pre-punched metal structural connectors like joist hangers, seismic/hurricane straps and rafter ties, deliver 5% more power than competing nailers and previous-generation tools. The increased power boosts consistency when driving nails into dense engineered lumber, like LVL and OSB.


Both of the new tools shoot 1 1/2" nails ranging from .131" to .148" in diameter. The JN91H1’s magazine holds a single rack of 34° paper tape-collated nails, offering users a lightweight tool with high degree of maneuverability. The JN91H2 has an extended magazine that can accommodate 2 racks of nails, allowing users to maintain higher production rates with fewer reloads.


Other features include a nosepiece design that leaves nail points exposed for accurate placement in pre-punched hardware; a redesigned, overmolded grip that increases comfort and control while reducing slipping; an adjustable exhaust port that directs blowback away from the user; a rugged belt/rafter hook made from heavy-duty steel and a lockout that prevents dry firing and signals the user when it is time to reload.


Each nailer comes with tool oil, safety glasses, an air plug and a 5-year limited warranty. Manufacturer’s suggested retail prices for the JN91H1 and JN91H2 are $224 and $234 respectively. Senco metal connector nailers that shoot 2 1/2" nails are due later this year.
