Bosch PTK 3.6 LI Cordless Tacker--Gluing? Screw Driving? No, Simply Use This Tacker

Say goodbye to hammers, screws, glue and pins: the cordless tool for crafting and decorating jobs helps users quickly and easily fasten a wide range of materials, such as fabrics, cardboard and film. Bosch provides the perfect solution for fixing thin materials on wood: the Bosch PTK 3.6 LI.

Always Ready-to-Use

The Bosch cordless tacker is always ready for use thanks to its integrated 3.6 V Li-Ion battery--get more than 400 staples with one fully charged battery. The clever green-red LED signal indicates the status of the battery. While the LED shows green when the battery has sufficient power, the LED will turn red when there's less than a 30% charge left to let users know when it’s close to running out.

Convenient Handling

The two-stage Push + Release System enables full control of the stroke release for the exact positioning of staples. The trigger will only release the shot by pushing down the tacker nose onto the work piece. The bottom loading magazine enables easy replenishment with exactly one strip of staples and rules out overfilling the magazine.

Easy replenishment in 4 steps:

1. Press release buttons

2. Pull out the magazine

3. Insert the staple strip (max. 100 staples)

4. Push in the magazine until it engages

Bosch PTK 3.6 LI Cordless Tacker

Easy and Ergonomic

The PTK 3.6 Li features low weight with only 0.8 kg due its small size and compact design. The soft grip on the top of the machine reduces the risk of the user losing their grip and therefore control of the machine.

Application Range

The range of applications varies from interior decorations to outdoor fixing over universal fixing application. Users are able to fix fabrics, carton, canvas, felt, wood, foil, foamed material, leather, paper, roofing cardboard, cork and textiles, or other materials such as carpet and wires on thin wood.

Lithium-Ion Technology

The Bosch IXO 4 screwdriver is powered by lithium ion technology
The Advantages of Lithium-Ion Technology

Tools with lithium-ion technology are ready for use practically all of the time. Regardless of whether the battery is fully charged, partially charged or flat, you can put it in the charging station without having to worry about self-discharge or memory effect.

Because of lithium ion technology, Bosch li-ion power tools have power that is available six times longer than tools with conventional NiCad batteries
Small Tools, Big Progress--Simply Remarkable

Bosch lithium-ion cordless tools like the IXO are ready for use quickly. Even after a period of 4 months on standby, a fully charged lithium-ion battery is still charged to approximately 85%. This means that Bosch Power is available to you for six times longer than that of conventional NiCd batteries.

The Bosch IXO 4 screwdriver is ready when you are because of lithium ion technology
Full Power at All Times

No self-discharge, no memory effect: constant battery capacity over the entire lifetime. Always ready when you are thanks to lithium-ion technology.

The Bosch IXO 4 screwdriver has smaller batteries because of lithium ion technology
Same Battery Power at Half The Size

Due to the lithium-ion technology, the size and weight of the batteries are reduced by approximately 60% compared to conventional nickel cadmium batteries--although they offer the same amount of power.

The Bosch IXO 4 screwdriver is compact in design because of lithium ion technology
Batteries That Withstand the Elements

The intelligent electronic cell protection Bosch ECP protects the lithium-ion batteries against excessive temperatures and overload, giving them a particularly long lifetime.

The Bosch IXO 4 screwdriver is compact in design because of lithium ion technology
High Power, Low Weight

Bosch cordless tools with lithium-ion technology impress with their very compact design, low weight and very good ease of use. This saves you a lot of effort when doing those DIY jobs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not reliable 3 Mar 2014
The tool is compact and light but just not reliable. I can't believe I wore it out by using just 1 box of 1000 staples but there are obvious signs of wear and the drive shaft looks to be deformed. I also found it hard to staple close to the edge of the job I was doing and couldn't get a tidy finish.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for light work, but not built to last. 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
A great cordless and free Tacker / Electric staple gun that we used for framing purposes in our studios.


Battery does last for ages on single charge.

Ergonomic, comfortable & easy to use. (minimal recoil and vibration)

No trip hazards because of trailing wires - true mobility!


There is no adjustment to the power of the stapler - and while its good (we used ours on dense pine without any problems) the legendary manual Stanley TR45 has more power.

It's quick, but not as fast as you might think - again the Stanley TR45 is faster, but less accurate.

After using around 15,000 staples over the course of 4 months, our machine just died, it was not a greasing issue, but rather the firing pin had worn out - not the type of quality you'd come to expect from Bosch.

In a nutshell, this staple gun/tacker would be great for infrequent light home use, but in a work environment although much more comfortable to use than a manual staple gun, is completely outclassed by something that costs 15.

Bosch, you used to be the pinnacle of tool and build quality - what happened??

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for 12mm 18 Sep 2013
By DavidO
Verified Purchase
This is a really great machine. It is safe, depending on perfect placement of the nose but won't get into those difficult corners where a long nose tacker is needed.
Amazon sell a package which includes 12mm staples. It wouldn't work with them. When I researched it through Bosch, I found that it is designed for 8mm and 10mm but not 12mm. After pointing this out to Amazon they refunded the cost of the 12mm staples, which should be removed from their advertising with this tacker.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just not consistant 3 Mar 2014
We started off well and then the gun lost all its power. There must be a loose connection because when i shook the gun, the power came back on but then it went off again. We returned the gun. When it did work we found that it wasn't very accurate, the staples seem to come out along way back and its hard guessing exactly where to fire each time in order to get a neat job.
I have read other reviews where they state the life of the gun is very short and this has been my experience too. Couldn't recommend it.
