Cable Boss Professional Grade Staple Gun for Secures NM, Coaxial, VDV, and Low Voltage Wire and Cable is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 27.

You have the be the Incredible Hulk just to squeeze it, then when the staples comes out it they don't even penetrate cardboard. The low voltage staples come out two at a time, and hardly go into a piece of cardboard. It is cheaply made China junk. I also ended up with over $50 of staples that I can't use. I gave it a fair shake, and tried three of them - two black ones and one red-and-black unit. One of them would not even fire. Save your money.

I bought this gun thinking it would be a faster way to secure NM-B cable than the old fashioned pound-in staples. I was wrong. This staple gun jammed frequently and when it did function, it was under-powered. In standard 2x4's, plywood, and floor joists, it never fully drove the staple into the wood. If I was lucky, it would drive the staple halfway and I could pound it the rest of the way in with a hammer. More often than not though, I would fold over the staple with my hammer due to how thin it is. It was fairly common for the staple to be so lightly driven that I could pluck it out of the wood by hand! This concept is a great idea. I would much rather be able to secure wires quickly and consistently with a staple gun instead of a hammer. This specific product is a horrible implementation of that idea though.

If you are stapling perpendicular to a joist there is no way to push on the top front of the stapler to apply pressure to the gun due to the rounded top. Very poor design, I plan on returning and eating the cost of the staples.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good purchase I bought this product beleiving that it would work as stated in the cover page. Unfortunetly it did not perform as stated. It is a waste of money and a trip to the home depot. The stapler did not staple the cable at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tool Ever I love this tool and use it constabtly for all kinds of wire. The first one I purchased broke after 10 years of constant use. I just purchased a second one and will buy a third if it breaks. You have to make sure the stapler and wire are flat and tight against the stapling surface. You also need to apply pressure to the stapler or the staples might not apply tightly or straight. A small tap from the hammer usually solves those issues. It does require a bit of effort to squeeze the trigger. If you need to get into a tight area where a hammer wont fit it works perfectly. Once you get the hang of how to properly use this tool it will become your best friend. Depending on the material type you are stapling into does effect how well it staples but that applies to regular electrical staples too. Some times you have to finish pounding the staple in which is to be expected. I cant say enough good things about this tool. I love it. The bad reviews are wrong and by people who didnt read the instructions. Like most tools if you read the instructions and use the tool properly and it works perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Bother! As a remodeling contractor, I find it sad to say, don't bother purchasing and giving this tool a try. More often than not this GB staple gun won’t even come close to pushing the staple's nails into framing lumber. Especially if the framing is solid, old dry wood as found the attics of in most homes that require remodeling. The nails on the GB cable staples are quite soft and bend easily when attempting to finish up the nailing with a hammer. Additionally, the staple gun is very difficult to pull and use with only one hand and easily jams and wastes staples. Use of this tool is difficult and tends to take more time than traditional hammer in style cable fasteners. Say - isn’t that why you wanted a staple gun in the first place as it is “supposed” to save time, and make the work a little easier!
