I've had this system and this gun for a few years now and it works well. The caps have improved, the cost is reasonable and it GREATLY reduces lippage in tile. Of course you have to flatten your substrate with any lippage system, but these will bend warped tiles flat.

Tool is worthless. It lasted for about 100 sq ft and started slipping on the spacers. The tool no longer will tighten the spacer clips and is worthless without inserting a screwdriver and applying pressure at the same time as squeezing the tool. do not waste your money on this lippage system.
