Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Murjim Does the job
I needed this to replace a vinyl seat cover on a motorcycle. It worked well, driving most of the staples into the hard plastic of the seat body and more importantly did not jam. Since I had never done this kind of work before I had to do it several times and went through hundreds of staples but the stapler worked flawlessly. The main reason I purchased it was because it was half the price of similar products but as far as I can tell it is a good quality stapler and much better then the spring loaded types if you already have a compressor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FrameGame Good stapler for specific applications
It's a well built stapler but isn't what I need. My fault for not reading the specs well enough.

This worked well for me. I tried using a larger gage gun and a hand stapler but I am a small woman and did not have the strength to staple repeatedly by hand. The dining room set I was reupholstering required a 1/4 inch staples. This was the perfect tool for my project.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by glasswench works well enough but a couple of major glitches
I agree with all the reveiws on here about how lightweight and comfy this gun is. I am using it for lightweight cotton fabric stretched over furring strips. like another reviewer wrote, every 15-25 staples something pops out and you have to stop and fix it. a hassle, but doable. what i do not like is the entire loading mechanism popping open twice with every row of staples i load into it. every. row. and i double/triple check that it is seated properly. it shoots off several staples, and then blam!! the whole thing pops open, dumping the staples out. also, it will miss and then shoot a double staple, one of which has the sharp ends pointing up, and has the added bonus of punching thru and cutting the fabric i am using. I put 6 rows of staples thru it, and it behaved properly with the very last row. so maybe it was just getting broken it, but... i'll do a few more pieces and if the stapler performs well. I will upgrade the review. kinda wish i had gotten the foreman brand.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheFatMan Works great for the price.
Powerful. Drives staples completely into materials a traditional, heavy duty, or electric staple gun can't handle. Installed a new seat cover on my motorcycle like a pro. Has no depth adjustment, but I found regulating the air pressure between 60psi and 100psi works well to adjust the power of impact. Occasionally the trigger safety mechanism pops out and causes it to double staple. Takes just a few seconds to pop it back in. Happens once every 15 to 25 staples or so. Minor inconvenience considering the price and performance. Much better product than I expected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GHomey Excellent for fabric work!
I purchased this stapler to make broadband acoustic panels. I use it specifically to staple fabric to 2'x4' frames made of furring strips and it works perfectly.
A manual stapler does not compare to this pneumatic gun as far as value, convenience and power. The value is the price, the convenience is the fact that I can use regular T50 type staples that can be found everywhere and the power means I can staple into various materials.
At 50psi, the gun is perfect for my needs. Any more and it perforates the fabric and blasts the staples deep into the wood furring strips. It saves so much time and dare I say, makes stapling fun. So much fun that I end up shooting more staples than necessary for the job. Better overkill than not enough I suppose
I am very happy with this purchase

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dokrok HOLY MACKERAL!!! Delightfully surprised.
I read the other reviews and was dubious about whether this would handle my project - covering a "cat tree" with carpet. I tried a manual stapler but that went out the window in about 15 minutes (I have arthritis in my hands). Researched extensively and decided to try the Surebonder. All other pneumatic guns were too heavy - the Surebonder is much smaller and lighter.
Ordered online and received in 3 days. Very quick. Opened box and read the manual (Yes, I read instructions and No I'm not a female). Dragged out my Welbilt "pancake" compressor, cranked it to 90 psi, put a couple drops of oil in gun, loaded with 9/16" T50 Arrow staples and tried it on a piece of pressure treated 2x4. It slammed the staple below the surface!!! Grinning like a Cheshire cat, I headed for the cat tree.
The hardest part of the whole project was cutting and wrapping the jute-backed carpet around the boards. Stapling was a dream, easily fastening two layers-thick to the wood (some yellow pine, some press. treated and an "OAK" tree trunk.)
Hints to people who have problems: Make sure you have enough air pressure for the job, ensure gun is perpendicular to the surface and press firmly.
I'm eagerly looking for more "stapling" projects.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TomK Very nice Staple Gun. You will be amazed with this gun compaired to the normal staple gun.
I like this gun very much, and it has worked flawlessley for four boxes of 1/2" stainless staples. I am using this for putting chicken wire on a Blackberry and rasberry garden into pressure treated lumber, and it sinks the staple in every time. With the old hand operated gun I had to carry a hammer and finish pounding them in, or the staples would just bend over. I never reviewed anything before, but I felt I had to review this stapler, it is a great tool.
Also in other reviews they say the staples fall out and the tool does not keep them latched in. I think they must have improved the tool because I canot see how that could happen.
