                  sure why not
                  this stapler has plenty room for improvement. maybe that's why my local HD removed the staples from their shelf. It definitely doesn't drive the cable staples as far as I'd like, and after they even need a little massaging to get them to sit properly. Also I avoided putting 2 sets of 5/16s because it seemed like they were going to bend. It is a hefty price considering it's marketed as a multiple size stapler. Overall for someone like me that works around the house it's not the worst, but definitely a heavy tole considering their competitor was a few dollars cheaper. My inclining favoritism to Klein tools was definitely a bad move.

                    This is so much better than the typical hand stapler. It can use a much deeper staple designed for an electrical cable as well as regular staples by the flick of a switch. The deeper staples will hold cables secure without any chance of pinching . It also uses a reverse handle providing more force to the action. There is a sturdy belt loop which can be changed to the opposite side if desired.

                    If you have ever been frustrated by trying to hammer in wire staples try the Klein loose cable stapler. It uses three sizes of insulated stables: 1/4" (Cat 3/5 or speaker wire); 5/16" (Cat 6, RG59) and 19/32" (NM-B Romex 14-3, 14-3G,12-3). The 19/32" staples can also be used for double runs of Cat 5, Cat 6, and/or RG59 cable. A label on the stapler also shows a 31/64" staple which may be a fairly new offering. Before using the stapler on the job I tried it out on a test piece of pine simulating a wood joist or a stud. Like any new tool it takes a bit of practice before you figure everything out. However, after a few tries I was able to sink the staple completely. Be sure to set the cable guide on front of the stapler to match the width of the staple you are using.

                    I'm a semi-retired I.T. technician and try to leave cabling chores to the younger folks, but sometimes I do need to install data cables. The new Klein stapler seems to work quite well. The Klein is a "press forward" design - you push on the handle rather than squeeze it. It took me a little time to get used to it. YMMV. There's a "tunnel" guide (see photo) that allows the stapler to be fit over Ethernet cable so that you can install the staple without damaging the cable. Please note - I'm specifically using this Klein stapler on data cables (Cat5, 5e, and 6); I don't install Romex and rarely work on coax installs. You'll want to read the product manual to choose the right staples and tool configuration for the jobs you’re doing. Fit and finish is fine and the operation is smooth, although it does take, I think a little more force than my old cable stapler. I haven’t experienced any jams. No pouch is included with the stapler, but a reversible belt hanger (see photo) is installed on the tool. I rarely use hangers and would rather have a tool pouch, but that's just me. The staples I'm using don't tightly hold the data cable down - there's enough leeway to wiggle the cable a bit but it's tight enough to keep the cable where I want it. I have another stapler (that doesn't use insulated staples) that is dedicated to data cable retention and that unit really pins the cable down. I prefer the way the Klein stapler is working; I don't think there's as much chance to damage the cable since it doesn't hold quite as tightly. In use I've been able to tack the data cables into place quite nicely, without wasting much time (except that the insulated staples take up more room than my old stapler's non-insulated ones, so I have to reload the Klein more often). Home Depot offers their 90-day return policy and Klein offers their standard "lifetime of the tool" warranty. HTH Regards, Jim

                    As with anything there's pros and cons. The biggest downfalls are frequent jams and handle strength. I've been playing with this and I am seeing frequent jams. I can't quite identify a common cause for the jams. Sometimes with a full string but more often when there are only a couple staples left. It's easy enough to remove the defective staple and keep going. The strength required to operate it is pretty high. It's more than that of a standard staple gun. Hopefully that will relax after usage. This really is a game changer. One tool to attach cabling and allowing it movement is ingenious. It drives the staple in very well and the staples really bite well. No fear of them pulling out with normal cable movement. Very easy to operate. Very easy to load too. I really wish I had this when I re-routed all of the electrical wiring in my shop. This would have been much easier. It's a good size for my large hands. I bought the Klein Tool's package of staples to start with. They do have other sizes at my local Home Depot but I couldn't find them online. There is also a less expensive brand but I wanted to give this stapler a fair chance without adding a different brand's performance effect it. Overall, yes. I would buy it again and I recommend you do too

                    Klein Cable stapler (model 450-100, Made in China). It's solid, heavy, and needs a hard push to activate. This is not a stapler where you “squeeze” the handle. You use the body to “push” the handle down. I found the best way to hold it was with three fingers inside the opening and the index finger along the front. I was only able to get a single size staple at Home Depot, the 19/32” x 11/32”, which is the largest size made by Klein. I feel that limits this review. I drove a number of staples into scrap 2x4 stud lumber and found that the staples didn't go in very far and often bent over slightly. The “tension setting” lever requires a push-to-rotate mechanism, and I didn't sense much difference in the two positions. In both positions the staple only went in about 3/16” but, again, a smaller staple might do better. There was a fairly large gap above and around the cable, allowing for more movement than I like, but that may be because I only had the largest staples. In some cases the plastic insulator in the staple cracked, but never so as to expose the cable to the metal staple. I can't use the cable/staple selector to secure small cables with large staples. The unit takes 4 size staples, ranging from 1/4” wide to 19/32” wide, and it adapts to the width by a set of spring guides running the length of the staple drawer. Pushing the “Staple/Cable Size Selector” plate brings the metal guides closer together while lowering the cable guide in the front (see photos). Staples in the drawer limit how far down the guide can go and, conversely, if the guide is down then larger staples cannot go forward in the drawer. I don't know if narrower staples would "rattle" inside the drawer. I also found it fairly difficult to remove unused staples from the drawer since there is a lip at the front end of the drawer - staples must be slid backwards first, and there is nothing to grip. The staple drawer latch on my unit is finicky – it doesn't latch easily every time and requires a VERY firm push to lock it closed. The belt clip can be located on either side, and it's a very handy for temporarily storing the stapler without putting it somewhere it can fall or be lost. Overall quality is obvious and performance so far is acceptable but I'd really like to see how it performs with all size staples.

                    My Christmas lights will be happy! I have been using a regular staple gun to hang lights where no roof clips can be used, and the lines to those lights have been paying the price. I wasn’t aware that a cable stapler was an option until I started looking to replace my staple gun. This Klein is just what I needed. Beyond the obvious purpose of a cable stapler and the benefit of using the right tool for the job, this is a sturdy tool. I wear a men’s size large glove and it is at the limit of what I would call a comfortable reach. It doesn’t have any slop/play in the handle stroke, so if you have smaller hands this may not be the stapler for you. It has two adjustments. The first is on the nose and is a dual size selector for the size of staple you are using. The lower position tightens the feed channel (you will see it when loading staples) for 1/4” & 5/16” staples. The higher position is for 19/32” & 31/64” staples. The other adjustable option is a tension setting for controlling depth. Again, it is a simple 2 position lever. Staples are loaded by turning the staple gun upside down and laying them into the feed channel. The spring latch on mine is a bit finicky, but it seems to be loosening up as I work it more. It has a nice rigid belt clip that can be used on either side of the tool. It is nice to have the option to pick the side that suits me for the task at hand. I didn’t see much difference in the tension setting. Neither drove the 1/4” staples I was testing flush to the 2”x4”. I attached a picture of the results. I think the material that I drive these staples into is going to be the bigger factor than the tension setting. I am happy that neither setting crushed the staples, as that would defeat the purpose of using this vs. a standard stapler and staples.

                    If you do a lot of running cables such as installing satellite systems or cable tv or even security cameras . I highly recommend this stapler. It is very heavy duty and can cut your time in half . just load and shoot and cables are done . The handle is a little hard to use at first but once you get use to it you will find this so much faster and easier to run loose cables

                    This Klein cable stapler is a very heavy duty stapler for various types of cable, such as flat household interior electrical cable (Romex), coaxial cable (75 or 50 Ohm), as well as voice and data cable (CAT5 or CAT6). This stapler adjusts to four sizes of staples [1/4 inch (telephone), 5/16 inch (coaxial), 19/32 inch (data) and 31/64 inch (electrical)]. As you can see in the picture, the channel face protects the cable while you are stapling, and the staple guide adjusts for correct opening size to protect cable from accidental damage. Although the staples are sold separately, the side of the stapler has all the data on the Klein staples to use with this stapler, including the part number (see picture). Klein really designed this stapler very well. It has a cast aluminum body for years of use, and it even has a handy belt clip (see picture) for those situations where you don’t want to put the stapler down on a nearby object or surface or when you are working in an elevated location. I highly recommend this stapler – another great Klein tool!

                    I absolutely love this tool. I used it to secure romex directly to the ceiling drywall. I stapled two complete boxes for this project, including some stapling to the ceiling joists. The finished job looks fantastic, couldn't imaging how long it would have taken me to screw in wire supports.
