Do the staples pinch Christmas light wires

Asked by Bubble November 26, 2018
4
Answers

No, they would be deep enough to not pinch so there would be some room for them to move inside the staple.

Hello, there. The PowerShot 5900 will work as long as the diameter of the wire is under 1/4-inch, and most cable companies do not use thicker wire than that. If you have any more questions, feel free to contacts us on social media, by email at customercare@arrowfastener.com, or by calling 800-776-2228. Good luck!

Got it on clearance. But after using it, I would pay MORE than retail to replace it!

Didn't know I needed this, now I wish I had one years ago. I bought this while I was in Home Depot buying lumber to make my nephew a bed. When the bed was done, his little room looked great! Well, except for the hundreds of feet of Video Game system, TV, Media Box, i-this & i-that, cables & wires running everywhere. I'd even teched up his headboard by building in a digital picture frame. I was duct taping cords behind the bed when I remembered that I had grabbed this handy item. I retrieved it from my car and went to work! I'd purchased it & an extra pack of staples w/ insulated wire/cable fasteners on clearance. I have several staplers, but for the specific task of securing cables, this one can't be beat. I think you can buy the special wire/ decoration staples for one of the other units I own, but I always have trouble when i use specialty staples or nails with it. This comes with these staples that are designed to staple to wall, trim etc. without crushing cables or wires, so it's handy even without the insulated fasteners. The price of the special staples are cheaper than most items sold in hardware stores for keeping cables off the floor or running wires around doors & windows so you can use as many staples as you need (instead of making an 6 pack of fasteners last for 40 feet of TV cable) & you don't have to try to hammer little tack nails or tiny screws. You just center the wire under the front of the stapler, depress the handle and it has enough force to drive the staple in but doesn't compress or damage cables & wires. Much safer than other methods if using it for Holiday decorating. A staple cutting through a light strand can be a fire hazard, there's no worrying about that with this stapler & special staples. If you need a single tool to do lots&lots of things skip this, but if you want the RIGHT tool for these specific tasks, THIS IS THE ONE. After those cables are out of the way & the Holiday lights are up, you'll probably reach for this instead for your regular stapler for lots of tasks. These staples are easier to remove so a better choice for any temporary tack jobs. Truthfully, I wouldn't have noticed this item if it hadn't been on the clearance rack. But after using it, I would pay more than retail to replace it if it ever vanishes from my tool box. Lisa

This cable tacker worked as expected. If you have multiple cables to be tacked it might not be the best choice. But if you're tacking down a single coax or ethernet cable it should be fine. It made an onerous job much easier.

I needed five staplers and was only able to one! Don't understand why I couldn't get the other four. Unless the tariffs from China had something to do with it. The stapler is a great tool for hanging Christmas ights. Been using them for years.
