This month wrapped up judging for the 7th annual Pro Tool Innovation Awards and EVERWIN received an award for the SN50S5-A. A diverse panel of judges made up of contractors, construction business owners, tradesmen, and media professionals from across the United States came together to vote on entries submitted by top global manufacturers.

Here's what the judges had to say about the SN50S5-A Full-Auto Heavy Wire Stapler:

“Some Pros need their staplers to be impossibly fast compared to what you expect from a framing or roofing nailer. Everwin’s Full-Auto Heavy Wire Stapler lets you work as fast as your skill level lets you by firing up to 20 staples per second. Obviously, it takes years of experience to develop that kind of speed, and we love that Everwin packed adjustable speed into this one. By setting the speed that you’re most comfortable getting quality results with, the stapler doesn’t get out of control. Then, as your skill improves, you’re free to bump up the speed.”

After looking through and judging hundreds of power tools, hand tools, fasteners, and accessories, winners were chosen based on industry innovation. Winners consistently demonstrated achievement in any combination of the following: innovative features, advanced power delivery, groundbreaking ergonomics, technological advancements, and value. The 2019 Pro Tool Innovation Awards recognize best-in-class products that are truly ahead of their time. This year, over 70 different manufacturers and brands submitted over 360 products in several dozen categories for a shot to win a 2019 Pro Tool Innovation Award.

"Each year, manufacturers reach further and further to innovate and improve their products, helping improve job site efficiency, safety, and productivity. While incremental advancements are the norm, some products truly distinguish themselves in the industry and deserve particular recognition. Business owners, builders, contractors, and tradespeople can look to the Pro Tool Innovation Awards to find the products that will help them work more quickly, safely, and with greater efficiency," said Clint DeBoer, Executive Director of the Pro Tool Innovation Awards. "These new tools also tend to save Pros and businesses money in either material costs or time-savings. That’s the kind of innovation that often speaks the loudest."

More about the EVERWIN SN50S5-A:

The SN50S5-A is the industry’s first speed-adjustable, full-automatic 16/17 gauge stapler available to general contractors. Three qualities that make the SN50S5-A unique are Productivity, Versatility, and Reliability.

The SN50S5-A’s Auto-Cap enables any user to shoot staples rapidly with ease. Its adjustable speed dial allows users to set the firing speed to accommodate their work pace, at any rate between 1~20 staples/second. The SN50S5-A helps make the output of veteran operators more consistent and helps boost the efficiency of operators new to the industry, whether it be on a construction site or in a manufactured housing factory.

The secret of the SN50S5-A lies within its full-automatic firing valve, which comes as an assembled cap unit called the “AUTO-CAP”. By simply replacing traditional cylinder cap units of any Everwin heavy wire stapler with the Auto-Cap, one can convert his/her Everwin stapler to full-automatic mode. This provides full flexibility according to the needs of each job site.

The all-metal construction of the SN50S5-A paired with its hidden jam-clearance mechanism and depth adjust dial cover makes the Everwin stapler more durable compared to competitor tools. On a 3’ steel plate drop test, competitor staplers in the market broke after 300~700 drops whereas the SN50S5-A survived 3,573 drops. This helps minimize tool repair downtime needed in harsh environments.
