Are these steel or aluminum?

Asked by: Dgorky51
They looked like galvanized metal as they should be, but they're not.. They rusted in a week. i got fooled. Home Depot should not carry stuff like that.

Is each side 6" long?

I was just wondering it they are 6" long, does this mean each side of the staple is 6" long that goes in the ground or is it 3" on each side of the staple that goes in the ground?
Asked by: tah
Yes, the length of each side is 6".

Customer Reviews

6 in. x 1 in. x 6 in. Metal Blanket Staples (100-Bag) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to use on hard soil These staples have a bit of a learning curve to be able to use them effectively. The prongs are a bit weak. In hard soil they bend easily when struck by a hammer. I found the best hammer to be a mason's hand held hammer/pick. There is a bit of a technique to gripping the prongs and squeezing them together while you strike the head of the staple. It works best to strike the head at the origin of the prongs not in the center of the head. It's much easier to drive the staples when the soil is a little wet or loose than when it's sun-baked hard. The best thing about these staples is that they are cheap. In hard soil you'll bend many of them until you get the hang of hammering them and even then 5-10% will end up bent and unusable. Once they're hammered in they hold the erosion blanket well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful product These staples can have multiple use around the house. After I finish my vegetable garden I will use these staples for holding organic blanket over the beds. Today they helped to solve other problem. I am growing blueberries in containers and they were standing in the grass; the grass was growing around pots and anytime I mowed the grass I had to move pots with blueberries too. I placed over the grass double layer of landscape fabric, pinned edges to the ground, put blueberry pots on fabric and problem is solved. It looks neat and I can mow the grass around. End of staples are slightly pointed for easier entering thru fabric and getting into the ground. Few times I hit some pebbles in the ground, so I pulled staple out and nailed it little bit farther. It holds fabric nicely. It also helps me to keep garden hose long run in place. My fence netting had one place with loose fence on the bottom. It helped keep netting down to the ground. All you need to work with is a hammer. Staples have nice size and are strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for erosion blankets I recently used a straw erosion blanket, to cover my newly planted hill. These blanket staples are a must, if you don't want the blanket to roll back up with the wind, or slide on the hill. The staples were easy to install and I had almost exactly enough, for the 8 ft. x 112.5 ft. erosion blanket (9 staples left over).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Metal Blanket Staples I needed to reposition many long shoots of ground cover. These staples did the trick and the plant stems are staying in place during all types of weather.
