              The weight supplied to hold the staples down is too light. I substituted a 1 1/4" pipe coupling for it and stapled down 4000 feet of tubing without a hitch.

                    Used the stapler to install my 1/2 inch tubing under my new slab. The stapler works marginally better than using your hands with individual staples. Constantly jambing is its only problem but its a big one. Other than constantly jambing the stapler works as intended. I read online that when the staples get low it will jamb, apparently we have the ONE that seems to jamb at any staple level. Frankly if i didnt have a bum knee i would have switched to doing my 900 feet of tubing by hand. Very frustrating!

                          We've used every brand of PEX tubing to foam board stapler out there and this is one of the best we've used. Using the Malco staples with the product, we have had minimal jams and retained high productivity.

                                We used this stapler to attach 1/2" pex to 2" foam board. The stapler worked great and made the job much faster. If you let the staples go below the minimum load mark the stapler will sometimes jam.It wasn't hard to clear the jam, just something to watch for.

                                      I simply used this stapler to secure 1/2 Pex to some 2 inch foamboard for heating the slab in a garage. Worked perfectly and couldn't imagine doing it without this tool.

                                            We used this thing because there isn't much out there that is faster. To work best it needs to be full of staples. The last ten or so were always jamming and getting stuck. They should sell it with a spring load like a stapler or a gravity weight, so the last staples will load properly. I would only recommend it for a big job!
