Good sturdy staple

"Used these to fix weed control fabric to timber. Using the Stanley aluminium staple gun every one went in clean without bending, even where the wood was knotty."

good for the price

"if you are going to be doing light work then these are good, I use them for fixing light weight chicken wire into timber and have no problems at all, have used them on membrane for shed roof and again no hassles, only trouble I find is if I want to remove them then they sometimes break, but they do as described"

Galvanised Staples
26 Apr 2012
By Frank3dn

"Purchased these for a staple gun I borrowed from someone to staple thin pieces of cedar together, they worked a treat in the staple gun, no stoppage, went through the wood and secured with no issues, loads of them in a small box, packaged well,
I would buy these again in I need to"

Not Heavy Duty
28 May 2014
By Acrefield
, North West
"Tried to use in a hammer tacker fixing 3mm ply to floorboards.
They are soft and have poor penetration, tend to spread rather than go in. If they do go part way in they need extreme care to finish with a hammer.
They always break when trying to remove failures.
No problems when replaced with the last of my old supply.
Way below usual Screwfix standards"

jamming staples
14 Jun 2013
By Raptorman

"I have been ordering these staples which came as screwfix branded staples in plain white box for poss the last 15 years no problems
UNTIL now, using the same part number now supplied as 'tacwise' but unfortunately these staples just keep breaking up inside the staple gun and jamming, i have tried persevering double checking correct for my gun etc but have just returned all 4 boxes for refund which is a real pain as i now have to try and source elsewhere.
ironically just found some 'screwfix' staples and again working perfect so it not the staple gun"
