Stanley TR250 SharpShooter Plus Heavy-Duty Staple Gun Review for 2016
The Stanley TR250 SharpShooter Plus Heavy-Duty Staple/Brad Nail Gun is a great tool to have in your toolbox if you are ready to do some DIY jobs around the house or if you are ready to go bigger and put the stapler to work on a regular basis. Regardless of what you use this staple gun for, you can be sure you’ll receive constant support from this manual powered staple gun without having to take constant breaks and wait for the pains in your hand to go away.
Overall, the Stanley TR250 SharpShooter gun has an ergonomic and robust design. This makes it easy to use even for prolonged periods of time. The inside grip of the staple gun is covered in rubber so you can maintain a steady grip at all times without slipping when your hands become sweaty. In addition to the sturdy grip, the entire body of the gun is made with aluminum that is not just lightweight, but also extremely durable. The handle of the gun is advertised as a “low stroke” handle and by reading the opinions of various customers, you can easily see how true this is. This is because you don’t need to press and tire your hand after a handful of staples driven down.
The Stanley TR250 SharpShooter has a definite advantage over other similar tools in many ways. One of these great advantages is that because of the way the gun is designed, you won’t risk piercing a cable that you need to tack to a wall. The front area of the tool features a thumb wheel which prevents these kind of accidents from happening. You are able to see where the staple will go down into the material and you will not face the danger of crushing the wire with the staple itself, especially if you have to work in an odd position.
The driving power of the TR250 staple gun can be adjusted with the aid of a simple notch. The back area of the gun features the switch and it has two settings: Hi and Lo, so you can turn the notch to whatever setting you intend on using for the next project. However, it is still advisable to give the staple gun a small test before you proceed on working with the given setting for the remainder of the project.
¼, 3/8 and ½ inch staples are the ones you need for the Stanley TR250 SharpShooter and you can easily switch between them if your project requires a smaller or a larger kind of staples. The magazine can only hold 100 staples, unfortunately, but at least it features a window so you can easily see how many staples are still inside and how soon the break will come. Challenging projects shouldn’t make you afraid if you have this gun in your hand, although you should know that sometimes, weird penetration angles might require you to use both hands on the trigger to drive the staple down. There are not too many downsides to this gun and when you take a look at its price, you’ll understand the price-to-quality ratio is great.
