Manual Clip Gun
Brand: Peter Mangone
Mfr Part#: RB-5
Peter Mangone RB-5 Manual Clip Gun is designed for installation of PEX tubing in plumbing and radiant heating applications. PEX Clip Gun is particularly useful for staple-up projects, when installing PEX between the joists and securing it to the wooden/plywood subfloor.
RB-5 PEX clip gun works in a similar manner to a paper stapler, but uses plastic PEX clips with nails instead of metal staples. It does not require a power supply and can be used anywhere at any time. Simply load a strip of PEX clips into the tool, position it over the pipe and shoot the clips.
RB-5 tool is compatible both with Stand-off and Flush Mount PEX Clips. It can hold up to 20 clips max. and comes with a detachable belt clip and user manual.
I don't see mention of what size staples (tubing size) it will accommodate. Can I assume the staple spacing is the same distance on 1/2" to 3/4" size clips and this stapler will work with those sizes?

RB-5 works with Peter Mangone flush mount clips (pipe pressed against the mounting surface) and stand-off clips(~1/8" clearance between mounting surface and the pipe) for PEX sizes up to 3/4".
The clip models and corresponding PEX sizes are as follows:
F5OD - for 1/2" PEX (5/8" OD)
F6OD - for 5/8" PEX (3/4" OD)
P3BK - for 3/8" PEX (1/2" OD)
P4BK - for 1/2" PEX (5/8" OD)
P6BK - for 3/4" PEX (7/8" OD)
The spacing of the clips depends on the pipe size and is usually 2-2.5ft for horizontal pipe runs and 3-4ft on vertical.
