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 5.0 out of 5.0 by theco2 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 3.0 out of 5.0 by Thisoldman 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.

Internet sale, mainly because they're not stocked in the store and hard to find elsewhere. Availability was the thing here. I needed them fast, because the rains were coming.
