Thus, it’s quite easy to put it to work and benefit from all the advantages that it brings. One of them is the fact you can quickly access the staple magazine: you need only one finger to do this and thanks to the bottom load design, it only takes seconds to reload the staples or replace the ones inside with others of a different size.
The Fasco F1B 50-16 Upholstery Stapler Pusher works with staples that are either Duo Fast 50 ones or counterparts: you can add ½ inch by ½ inch staples, with a leg length ranging from ¼ to 5/8, depending on your needs.
