Whether you have a simple upholstery project to complete or you’re getting ready to embark on a new hobby, nothing makes the job easier than the best upholstery stapler. There are a lot of options out there so we did in-depth research to bring you these stapler reviews. Before we get into our list of best products, let’s take a closer look at some of the features you need to know before buying an upholstery stapler.
Power: Our top picks offer some variety when it comes to power. Most of them are pneumatic and require an air compressor. There are also a few manual staplers and even an electric one if that’s what you’re looking for.
Staple Length: Staple length varies from ¼ to 1 ½ inches. One of our picks uses mm sized staples. The length you need to use depends on the material you’re working with. The bigger the job, the bigger the staple.
Staple Gauge: Gauge is basically how thick the staple it. Remember, the higher the number, the thinner the staple. A 22-gauge staple is significantly thinner than an 18-gauge one. Delicate jobs should be done with a small gauge.
Carrying Case: Having a carrying case doesn’t affect the performance of the stapler. Which is good because none of our picks come with a carrying case. Make sure you engage any safety mechanisms before attempting to store any of these staplers.
Weight: The lighter a tool is, the easier it will be to work with. These tools are all pretty lightweight, ranging anywhere from 1 to 3.2 pounds. You can work for long periods of time without pain or discomfort.
Warranty: Make sure you check out your warranty so you know what’s covered and what isn’t. With a tool like this, if you want something that will last a long time, try to get one with a long warranty so you’re covered.
Now that we covered some of the features you need to know about when buying an upholstery stapler, we can get right into our reviews. In a hurry? Make sure to check out our top and budget picks first so you get some idea of what’s out there. They’re right at the top of the list. Stick around if you can to see what other products made the cut.
