For just a bit more than what you will pay for an 8’ extension pole with shipping for your Ramset or Hilti tool, you can get the STIFFY PAT tool and a telescopic pole tool that extends from 4’ – 12’. If you prefer, you can get a 6’-18’ telescopic pole as well. The STIFFY tool is a .27 caliber strip tool and is designed exclusively for overhead fastening. In fact, the only real knock on the tool is that it will only shoot up. The tool is lightweight and very simple to operate and maintain. If you can work with the 4’-12’ pole, it will collapse and fit in most gang boxes with the tool attached. One real advantage of the STIFFY/Telescopic pole combo is you don’t’ have a lever to fire the tool. You simply press the tool against the concrete deck to fasten. Now picture if you have a fixed length extension pole and your ceiling is just a little shorter. You may be bending over to fire the tool!
