hammer tacker/stapler


I've been tacking down housewrap but my hammer stapler leaves a small tear. I've seen a hammer stapler in a magazine that in addition to the staple lays down a plastic button. Does anyone know who makes it? I can't find it in stores and am having trouble googling it.

Nevermind, I found it, I spoke too soon... it's the Stinger CH38. It has less than stellar reviews. On that note,
how do I attach housewrap without putting small tears using my hammer stapler?

The book I was reading last night, "Best Practices Guide to residential construction", Steven Bliss, said tyvek should be stapled with a stable at least 1" wide at the crown. I remember it because I thought - I've never seen a staple that wide - maybe that's why it sometimes tears!

Not sure where to find a wide stapler.

On the Stinger, my building yard (EBS) had them sitting out on display recently.
