Using the CT60 tacker, these intermittently fire straight through your cable!
on 1 December 2013
See my review of the CT60 tack wise tacker (Orange plastic).. I bought these to use with that tacker and after tacking down 2 metres of 6mm cable, one of these fired straight through the cable, shorting 2 pairs. I had to finish the job with the 10mm staples after cutting off the damaged section. Afterwards, I tested these 14mm staples on a scrap piece of timber, and roughly one in ten staples would miss-fire straight through the cable.
Unless you're working with VERY soft timber (and even then I'm not confident), I would not recommend these.. go for the 10mm instead and hope it holds your cable sufficiently.
