Craftsman Light Duty Stapler works for wood chair upholstery

My first staple gun, and it worked easily, completely, and simply to drive staples into wood chair frames to hold upholstery.  I was skeptical that "light duty" would be sufficient to handle stapling into wood.  Other web sites indicated "light duty" was good for crafts.  It worried me that "wood" was not mentioned anywhere, and I think this should be included in the product description because it worked very well.

Staple loading is a bit tricky, not as expected given my sole experience was with home paper staplers.  I tried incorrectly to put the staples onto the rail that extrudes.  But the staples drop into the body slot and then the rail pushes back in place over them.  It's very easy once you get rid of the "paper staple" model that might be in your head, like mine.

My minimal use has not fully tested the longevity and reliability of the plastic tray, but it is lightweight and I would handle it carefully.

Plastic does not hold up

While I like the weight and small size it comes at a cost of reliability. The plastic tray release has two reversed hooks that you squeeze to release the staple draw. The plastic is not designed well as one of the two hooks developed a crack along its pivot point from being squeezed. After this happens the tray will pop open when a staple is fired off and all the staples in the tray fall out.

Average Stapler

This stapler is an average stapler for the size. It's small and compact and gets the job done for small everyday projects. The value is great.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Wouldn't Feed Staples

The stapler wouldn't feed 1/4" or 3/8" staples of multiple brands. Stapler is cheaply made, and the price reflects that.

Thank heaven for the reviews

Works great for me as I have arthritis and can't handle the big, heavy staplers. That is until I tried to reload and found the staples loaded ok but the gun wouldn't fire. I figured I had a lemon and went to the reviews to confirm my opinion but read the post that talked about the reloading being tricky if you aren't familiar with this type of stapler and explained how it worked and now I'm back in business! I wouldn't be able to recover my chairs without this light and easy to fire staple gun.

Light Duty--- big understatement!

The plastic housing breaks after not much use! The design is great, BUT...... Seeing as this one is so cheaply built I wonder about the other one of this design....
