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.

Bought this based on all the positive reviews and was surprised to open the box to find what looked like a fairly well-used stapler! It's for work so I decided to overlook and just use anyway. Only problem, stapler never even worked.
Home Depot was proficient in taking in return and ordering me a new one - let's hope when it arrives it's new and in working condition!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hawker Great Stapler
This is a great stapler. We reupholstered six chair cushions and needed a stapler that could drive staples through thick naugahyde that was doubled up in two or three thicknesses in a lot of places. It worked great, very few mis fires.
It is very inexpensive but had a good, easy feel and comfort. I don't know about the long-term durability of this tool as it was so cheap. But for homeowner projects, it should last for years.
It has probably the usual safety foot that has to be depressed against what you are stapling before the trigger will drive a staple. So it take both things before it fires which made for a good safety feel too.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jenn So far so good!
I needed a powerful gun to do some upholstering on some chairs and future projects. I saw this one, saw it had great reviews and looked like a great value for the gun. So far it works great! I haven't had any problems with staples jamming and it has plenty enough power for all my needs. The only down side, which is why I gave it four stars, is the head of the gun where the staple comes out...it is a bit wide and I had a hard time with it not fitting into tight spaces that one of my chairs had. It was unable to fit into the slot and therefore kept ripping the fabric. As long as there's no real tight spaces the product works great!

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by dj53 This Surebonder 9600 stapler didn't work
I purchased this stapler for putting up insulation. I even called Surebonder before purchasing and they were very friendly and helpful. After trying it one evening i decided that I dislike this tool more than I dislike manual post hole diggers. It constantly misfired and would take four and sometimes five times pulling the trigger to get the staple to come out. Other times, it would shoot two - three staples at a time. If it wasn't held at exactly the correct angle, it wouldn't shoot the staple. Very annoying. Finally, went to Harbor Freight and purchased a crown staple for $16.00 that worked perfect and never misfired.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rich ugly finish, great gun
Bought this to put on a dirt bike seat cover. It worked great! After trying manual and electrics, this one did the job with ease. I had originally had a professional put it on and had to redo his work; this gun made it so easy. I looked at the other reviews and yes indeed mine looked "used" as well. I think it is just the overall quality is not up to par with the Porters, Dewalts, ect but that is probably how they keep the cost down. And as far as "not working": did they put the staples in the right way? You do not load it like the manual type, that may be the issue there.
