Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Handyjane Upholstery stapler
Needed this to recover some bar stools and other furniture pieces. I loved that it came with three sizes of staples. Big time saver.
Took me a bit to figure out the trigger safety, but the thing works great. Some of the reviews mentioned problems, I had none. Works the way it should. Just take your time , don't try to work fast like a professional, and you'll get good results.
I love that it's small enough to fit comfortably in my hand, I have small hands.
I'm happy with my purchase.

I ordered this product so that I could recover a couch. The job got done and I am pleased with the results. I did experience a couple of slight problems:
The "hammer" (the metal piece that actually pushes out the staples) should be oiled. The instruction manual said to oil the stapler daily but only indicated oiling at the air inlet. Once it got to the point that I was opening it up and pushing the "hammer" back into the retracted position after every single staple, I decided to oil that portion. I waited overnight and then shot the empty stapler into scrap wood about 20 times before using it again. It worked much better after that.
These staples break VERY easily. I got pretty frustrated pulling the 2000 or so existing staples out of my project, but most of them came out in their entirety. I would say that these Surebonder staples broke about 80% of the time. It made me more careful to not make mistakes, but when I did, it was really a pain. It will also definitely affect whether or not I will ever recover this couch again. I cannot imagine trying to pull out 2000 of the Surebonder staples.
On the positive side, this stapler is much cheaper than any alternative I found. This set from Home Depot came with lots of staples. I can probably get through one more project before I need more of the 3/8 inch staples. (I only used of few of the other sizes.) I did not experience any difficult jams. It is lightweight and easy to use.
I do recommend this product if you keep in mind to oil the hammer and you are ok with the fragility of the staples.

This upholstery stapler is perfect for a DIY like me. What a terrific value - it even comes with an assortment of staples and a storage case (oh, and very clear instructions). Used it to upholster 4 kitchen chair seats. Hasn't jammed once. It isn't a rapid fire like some of the professional models but that's ok for me. No complaints. Go for it.

the stapler worked as I expected, the only thing is the staplers that were to come with this kit was missing the 5/8 " staples
