Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman maybe good for cat6, but too big for cat5
My friend got this for our job. It works okay. We tested it on the belkin cat5e gray cables, there is a tiny gap for the wire to move around. Maybe it fits cat6 snuggly, please test that for yourself.
We opted for the 5/32 staples instead. They worked on phone cables (single or double up) and cat5e cable well. Especially in wood, okay in normal drywall.
Watch the youtube video on how to use a staple gun, it really helps.
I have long fingers, the gun is kinda big even for me, grip wise. After 20-40 staples, the stress is too great for a first time user. I was hoping that they have a battery version for the gun.

Also bought a gun to install cat5 line. Works really good. The staples with the plastic to protect the wire are better but these serve the purpose just fine for diy project.

I love these things. I'm building a home and I seem to have miles of small wires to tack in place. I was looking for small insulated staples but they are expensive. For around $25 you can get the staple gun and enough staples to keep everything in place and away from the drywall guys! I used it for the garage door wires, alarm wires, CAT5 cables, TV coax, and the thermostat & zone wires.

Worked well for securing my wiring around the house. Only a few staples had to be redone.
