Question about Stanley Bostitch Industrial Manual Flooring Cleat Nailer - MFN200
2 things come to mind. I've installed Wood Floors for the last 5 years.
Make sure you have enough Air pressure running to the stapler,
and Second, Whack the hell out of it. You can be rough with it. Their designed to take a beating
When u hit it with the mallet, youre opening a valve which shoots the piston and drives the staple into the boards. hit it not hard enough, not enough air is being sent to the piston to drive it fully.

Only one of three things will cause this. Either the drive blade has been broken off and not long enough to fully drive the nail or you simply are not hitting it hard enough. Thirdly, 2 inch cleats are for 3/4" floor and 1 1/2" cleats are for thinner flooring or 3/4" floor nailed to plywood over concrete.

I few different things could be your issue. Check the flooring specs. Flooring thickness maybe the issue. all flooring require you to use a certain size boot size. if the floors 5/16 it requires a thinner boot sometimes then a 3/4 wood. If you r nailing into certain exotics. Some are so dense they require a pneumatic nailer. also be sure not to nail into concrete. sounds crazy but people have tried it.

The most common cause is the pressure of the compressor you are using. We had the same problem, but, by increasing the pressure we were able to fix the problem. Pressing the nailer against the floor with more force will prevent it from jumping back and causing the staples or nails from sticking out.
