Simpson Strong-Tie’s new G3 gas-actuated fastening tool is ideal for attaching light-duty fixtures such as drywall track, lath wire, furring strips, waterproofing membrane or mechanical/electrical/plumbing utilities to concrete, steel, concrete masonry units (CMUs), concrete over metal deck, or cold-formed steel (CFS).
The G3 can be used as a magazine tool (to attach track, furring strips, hat channel, and angle using GDP and GDPS collated pins) or easily converted to a single-shot tool for attaching fixtures with preassembled pins/accessories.
The tool’s 45-pin magazine with easy-to-locate orange pusher button leaves two pins remaining to ensure the tool does not discharge without pins in the magazine. The magazine’s quick-release lever allows quick removal for changing the nosepiece, clearing a jam, or resetting.
