SOURCE: Size of staple to install roll insulation in wall cavities.

It would seem that 9/16 is a bit long to attach canvas and may even penetrate through to the working surface unless the backer board is much thicker then 9/16.

1/4 or 3/8 may be more suitable.

Good luck

Hi Rita,

Yes, the + and - adjusts the depth of the staple. You should check the setting periodically as it has a tendency to move as you handle the stapler.
Also, holding the nose of the staple flush and steady on the surface helps to drive them to the proper depth.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up, keeps me working... Thanks,

Hi Nancy,

Do you mean it rapid fires, or do you mean fires the staples to deep?
If it fires too deep, the adjustment for that is on the back of the gun. The + and - give more/less depth. Adjust it towards the - direction to get the brad/staple to no penetrate as far.

Thanks,

Handie Andie

My gun fires four or five staples all a once--is there an adjustment. with shooting so many staples at once then they do not go in all the way


  • This may or may not help, but I have one that was doing the same (as many as five at one trigger pull). I gave it the little WD40 and it still did the same. Then, I thought maybe it was the effect of not being used for a while. I proceeded to pull the trigger several hundred times (you can do this without staples loaded) and now, mine works fine. Seems to have helped.
