Clear jams easily
In our testing, we had very few brads get jammed in the tip of the tool. But when this does happen, it’s nice to be able to clear the tip without tools. All but one of the brad nailers have tool-free jam clearing. On most tools, you release a latch on the front to access the jammed brad. To access a jam on the Milwaukee tool, you just release the nail clip cover.
Occasionally the driver in these brad nailers will get stuck. A few tools have a “stall release” lever to reset the driver. Other tools instruct you to remove and then replace the battery. Then you press the nose against a scrap of wood and pull the trigger to reset the driver. Be sure to read this section of your instruction manual to see how your tool works.
