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.

They don't shatter & there is enough strength in them to take a bit of abuse on tough materials or pulling wonky ones back out.
At £2.50 - £3.50 for 2000 why buy cheap no names that bounce back at you because they are blunt?

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.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This pack of Tacwise staples fits the colour coded green, 140 series Tacwise Z1-140 Staple Gun. Staple Gun Tacker which only fits staples and not pins. This pack contains 2000 staples. The 8mm size refers to the depth of the staples which are around 1 mm wide - about three times as thick as a regular staple. (All Tacwise staples are slightly shorter than regular stationery staples). The difference between the green 140 series and the blue 53 series is the width of the staple. The Green series is three times as thick and this is what makes them 'heavy duty'. The packaging suggests that these staples are compatible with other brands of staple gun, namely the Stanley G11 and the Arrow T-50. The staples are galvanised, which makes them ideal for using outdoors.

I would recommend the 8mm staples for tacking fabric, card or material that wasn't going to come in for too much pull on it since, although the breath is thick, the depth of the staples is only 8 mm. For anything needing stronger securing such as a tarpaulin that may catch the wind, I would recommend deeper staples as used with the Tacwise 0847 Z3-53L Staple / Nail Gun, which takes the 53 series which is colour-coded blue and features deeper penetrating but thinner staples.

Do stick to Tacwise's colour-coding guidelines because different colour-coded staples do not work in their stable guns that are NOT correspondingly colour-coded. This is because the staple is a different breadth and will be spat out of the back. (I just tried it in the interests of experimentation.)The staples themselves are good strong quality as you would expect from a reputable company such as Tacwise.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Staples seem a commodity and at a price point where few other than those with a 10,000 a day habit might quibble. Furthermore usage tends to be ephemeral (in which case durability is irrelevant) or very long term (and I have yet to see a ten year ‘revisit’ review).

However, quality is relevant in terms of the nuisance and untidiness when staples crumple or fail to penetrate fully and both the sharpness of the point and the strength of the wire are important. Tacwise-Rapesco dominates this sector and they deal a lot with trade, which tends to be indicative of a quality product.

These heavy duty stainless steel staples punch through flooring and MDF with ease and I have not suffered a single bent staple, which is probably a combination of both the staple and the gun (a Tacwise Z1-140) although the staples are cross compatible with quite a lot of other manufacturer’s guns.
