Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These staples are a standard heavy duty size, 0.6mm by 1.2mm in section, points on a 10mm pitch, with the tines having an 8mm (5/16") length. The points are symmetrically sharpened to allow better entry into harder materials such as wood.

I used them with both my Wickes heavy duty staple gun and the Tacwise Z1-140 stapler kindly supplied by Tacwise to evaluate the staples for this Vine test. The adjustable drive of the Wickes gun allowed me to fully insert some staples into a scrap piece of Oak without the staple bending out of true, so the strength of the staples is adequate. The non-adjustable Z1-140 gun could only insert an 8mm staple halfway into the Oak but was fine on much softer Pine.

These staples claim to be galvanised; rust resistance is very important to me to prevent staining when used for upholstery, etc. So I tried a standard rust test, by leaving one in a saucer of water for a few days, and was pleased to see no signs of rust. This was significantly better than a standard light duty 26/6 office staple which quickly rusted in a second saucer alongside.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Some years ago after insulating and boarding out my loft to make a storage area for suitcases, Xmas decs and other paraphernalia, I got a bit carried away. My wife will tell you that it is only by a very far stretch of the imagination and with considerable exaggeration that I could be described as being a competent DIY-er. She much prefers the term ‘half-a-job’ and by this, of course she means rarely finished and rarely satisfactory.
I decided with a suitable manly flourish to purchase rolls and rolls of aluminium foil, quilty stuff; and with this I was going to fasten it between the roof spars, thereby enhancing the insulation still further.
This turned out to be a big mistake, because the only thing I could think of to pin the quilt to the spars were tacks. These proved to be very nasty in confined spaces – especially when I succeeded in knocking over the container they were in. They were devilishly sharp but hard to control, especially with my cave-man-like skills with a hammer. Only a few actually managed to pierce quilt to wood and far more flew off at every possible angle and many right into my thumb.

How much easier these wonderful staples would have made this job. Many thanks to Tacwise for also including the staple gun so that I could conduct a thorough review; and to this end I have spent most of this afternoon up there. This has allowed me to finish in spectacular fashion what I started a couple of winters ago. This staple gun is so easy to load, and even for a weedy chap like me – very easy to use. I am amazed at how well it penetrates with a simply squeeze of the trigger. It is especially good at awkward angles like round the roof timbers and also in confined spaces.

Tackwise staples.
------------------------
Hey sent me a gun as well as the staples to review so I am reviewing both the gun and the staples here.

This gun comes blister packed with some staples. Multi lingual instructions are included on how to load it. It is very easy to use

In use.
---------
The gun appears well built and was easy to load. It has a safety catch to lock down the handle which is a good idea. There is also a belt clip so that it is easy to carry if using other tools in rotation. The staples go into plaster and wood very securely. The gun is easy to use but requires a firm hand to fire it accurately. I have recently used it while re-felting a shed, it was great to use and helped position the felt easily. The staples always go in and never seem to bend. They feed from the gun without jamming every time. In fact since owning this I have got through three boxes of staples and never had a jam.

Overall.
----------
A good little gun capable of doing plenty of work around the house, garage, sheds and workshops. . A very useful addition to my home tool kit. The staples are reasonably priced and very well made. All in all a great system from Tackwise that will be useful all around the home on lots of DIY projects.

Strong enough that they don't break apart when the stapler impacts on the head and hard enough to be driven into most wood types without flattening out.

I had to put some plastic netting around some fence posts that were awaiting panels to be fitted. I loaded these into a tacwise stapler I had and just flew around tacking the netting in place. I was having so much fun, I forgot that I would have to remove them all later on!

When it came to pulling them out I gave up and just started ripping the netting away. The staples are still there and now painted over!

The success of these staples will depend upon the stapler you are using, You don't need to use a Tacwise stapler as these will fit a variety of guns. I'll upload a picture of the box showing the range. If the stapler is underpowered then you may not get good results.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This pack affords you pretty good value; the Tacwise staples are a quality product; however these staple pins will fit other branded DIY staplers. I would recommend them to anyone with a job that needs to be done. As these staples pins are pretty tough, making them robust enough for a large plethora of jobs. We hardly had any misfires and no `deformed' pins. The Tacker, we received free for the purposes of the review, sits well in your hand and is easy to operate even when you have a lot of stapling to do. Just imagine trying to do this job using a hammer and pins.

All in all these are two very good products from a good specialist company. Tacwise Heavy Duty 140 Type Staples 8mm are real quality staples, which will not rust, and hence worth the extra outlay.
