Great Stapler

By KDF

from New Sharon, IA

Comments about Foamboard Stapler:

Taking the reccomendation of someone that had posted feedback on this product. I purchased this product to install pex in a new home project. I have shot 9 boxes of 2" staples through this stapler and the only mis-fires that I got was when the gun gets down to 1-2 staples. Just add a new strip of staples and you back to work. The staples for this really hold and have more barbs than some of the others.

Comments about Foamboard Stapler:

Used to install 5000' of pex on foam. Works great, be careful as staples get low, may misfire at that point. once i realized that things went great.

Works great!

Comments about Foamboard Stapler:

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.

Comments about Foamboard Stapler:

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!

Top stapler

Comments about Foamboard Stapler:

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.

Made the job much faster

By VMS

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Foamboard Stapler:

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.

Perfect

Comments about Foamboard Stapler:

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.

Foamboard Stapler needs a counter weight

By New home owner

from Seneca, KS

Verified Buyer

Comments about Foamboard Stapler:

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!
