Safety


Never let a youngster play with the staple guns. Even the manual ones eject staples with a great deal of force. If something is strong enough o enter solid wood, it is too dangerous for kids. Keep these locked up or in some safe place away from the kids. Keep the safety latch on at all times when you aren’t using it. This will prevent accidents but remember not all staple guns have this feature so you may want to look into finding one that does if you have children around. Of course, you don’t point the gun at anyone else and you keep your fingers out of the way of the staples. With a little common sense, stapling can be a fast, safe and simple way to do all kinds of repairs and projects around the house.
