Whether fastening roofing paper to your roof or upholstery to your furniture, staple guns speed up the process. And while these tools bring efficiency to a project, depending on the type of work required certain types are better than others.
Electric staple guns, for example, require less physical exertion to operate than manual staple guns making them ideal for larger projects. Hammer tackers are generally used for heavier-duty jobs, like installing carpet padding or insulation. Operated much like regular hammers, hammer tackers drive their staples into your work surface with each blow.
