Christmas tree fasteners are used to permanently attach plastic vapor barrier to the foundation walls of the crawl space. These plastic retainer clips got their start in the automotive industry and was quickly adopted by crawl space companies and DIYers to make crawl space vapor barrier installation simple and effective.
We recommend using our 2" Butyl Tape in conjunction with the Christmas tree fasteners to secure the vapor barrier to the foundation wall.

these work great for attaching vapor barrier to concrete walls
These are part 2 of the wall covering process. The butyl tape holds the plastic firmly in place, allowing you to drill your pilot hole for these fasteners. I found that I could press these into the pilot holes by pushing with the space between the bottom of my thumb and the heel of my hand. Then, I could often push the fastener the rest of the way end using the heel of the hand. I did my entire 750 sq ft crawl space by myself. There were a few times that the fasteners would bend (probably due to a pilot hole not drilled deep enough), but not a single fastener broke.
Easy to use and worked fantastic!
Used Christmas tree fasteners in concrete block for the piers, and in the top of the 2" foam boards that were tapcon-ed to the wall. This seemed better than anchoring the fasteners to the concrete block, as near the top of the foam board, the plastic will pull at a 45 deg angle, whereas in the top of the foam board, the pull is at a direct perpendicular angle. Plus, you can simply press the Christmas Tree Fasteners in by hand through the sheet plastic into the foam board, and they are not coming out without a struggle!
They work really well on both Brick and Spray Foam walls
I installed mine through the plastic and butyl tape into 2”foam board and they hold tremendously!
I was worried these wouldn't work in my old crawlspace walls ... no need to worry. They are holding perfectly in less-than-ideal concrete! Having small hands, I used a rubber mallet to tap them in (GENTLY!!).
Great and easy to use. I also made a small flap at the ends and was able to double the holding power to the vaper barrier. Only four stars because i didn't see a fastener available that could hold my foam board. ( not long enough)
