Staple gun fine..but please make sure you order/buy the correct staples for the gun you are buying..I didnt order online but bought my staples at a local store...wrongly assumming that all 'Stanley' staples fit all 'Stanley' guns...not so. make sure you check the correct model/staples that match each other.

Just finished reupholstering my dining chairs. And this is the stapler that did all the work. There are two other inferior supposedly 'heavy duty' staplers in the bin. It's a no-mess, does-the-job, non-jamming, easy-to-use, super-stapler and I'm pleased as punch with it.

I ordered this stapler along with some 10mm and 14mm staples in order to fix some fern screening to wooden fenceposts. This was to save unsettling the posts in using tacks or nails. I feel very well-disposed to the makers of both this stapler and the staples as they saved me no end of effort and worked like a dream. Marvellous little tool! Worth every penny.

Completed the re-upholstery of a dining chair with no problems.
Would have appreciated some help choosing the right size of staples.
Ones I originally chose where for a much heavier job. 6mm were the best.

Purchased this stapler to put up some Bark Screening. As I noted from previous reviews that no staples come with this product I ordered the staples that were recommended in the product description (14 mm). Although these come from another seller, both products arrived on same day, promptly and within delivery estimate. The stapler is excellent. Although the bark screening was too thick in some parts to staple to the fence it worked well on the thinner parts and securely stapled the screening to my existing fence. It is very easy to use and doesn't need too much pressure to drive staple home. I did get a pinch once but this was poor positioning of my hand on the stapler handle. I have also used it to re-attach some trellis and it also coped well with this with the 14 mm staples. It took just 25 minutes to staple 20 feet of bark screening to fence and believe me we used quite a lot of staples to ensure security. Would highly recommend for this type of use and will probably find many more uses for it, especially in the garden.

We chose the five star rating because the Staple Gun lived up to our expectations, the loading and operation was easy and the instructions for use were very clear. We re-upholstered our "headboard" in a short space of time with the "gun".
I would recommend the Stanley Heavy Duty Staple Gun for professional and DIY use..

Its a Stanley tool. That should be enough of a review for anyone familiar with DIY tools. Stanley make great tools at the middle of the market. Consistently better than Draper, but not as good as some of the top end brands favoured by professionals.

This is a sturdy, easy to use staple gun which takes a wide range of Stanley staples. Performance is superb.

So far as I can tell staple guns only take staples made by the same manufacturer. So, if you buy a Stanley staple gun you know you can get Stanley staple guns anywhere in the country. If you buy an own brand gun from Homebase or B & Q you are stuck with that store - not necessarily a bad thing, but something to bear in mind. Also, I suspect the own brand guns are more likely to be "Draper quality", which is why they are generally cheaper.

TOP 100 REVIEWERon 22 October 2014
I must admit that this is the first heavy duty staple gun I have ever bought, and did so to attach roofing felt to the hard wood beams in my loft. I bought the longest compatible staples, Stanley 1-TRA709T 14mm Heavy-Duty Staple (1000 Pieces), for the job and found that the staple gun mostly did a good job in making sure they penetrated the wood almost fully on most occasions. You have to be careful to keep the gun fairly parallel to the surface of the wood and pressed tightly against it, or you find that the staples ends up twisted or not even half way in. For the particular wood I was stapling the roofing felt to, the 14mm staple was probably not quite fully in but there was maybe only a millimetre sticking out. I could give the staple a gentle bash with a hammer to finish the job so I am generally satisfied that the staple gun did what I needed it to. The staple gun seems strongly made and very unlikely to fall apart. There is a useful handle lock for when not in use and you can adjust the power (hi or low) depending on the material you're stapling. Loading and unloaded staples is very straightforward.

It's worth keeping in mind that this staple gun does NOT come supplied with staples.

I felt it was worth spending a bit extra after an old plastic staple gun I had which was always pretty hit and miss finally got lost.
This just bangs out staples and is a pleasure to use. I'm only little and have no problem firing it one handed, as I recall some reviewers complained it was too hard- either i'm stronger than I realised, or they have a warped perception of all manual labour. You really do just squeeze it and out fire the good strong staples I also bought from amazon. It's comforting to know I'm now ready for any stapling eventualities. And really the £13 delivered or whatever it was feels like money well spent.
