Surebonder 9615A Upholstery Stapler Review
The Surebonder 9615A Upholstery Stapler with Carrying Case is a great tool to have around if you have some small projects that involve upholstery, just like the gun’s name implies. As long as you remember the purpose of the staple gun at all times and put it to work in a proper environment, you’ll hardly have any issues with it. The price is quite cheap, especially in comparison with many other upholstery staplers. However, it comes with a small downside. If you care about the finish quality of the tool, the results are good, but not perfect.
The Surebonder 9615A model is an air-powered staple gun, which makes it extremely good to use if you want a gun that is not a burden to carry around. You can easily connect it to a compressor and in a matter of seconds, you will be ready to start your new DIY project or continue working. There’s no need to be a professional when you decide to purchase and use this stapler, because the learning curve is really small. Even better, you’ll hardly encounter any issues at all.
As a side note, the instructions that come with this stapler are not the most detailed out there, but you can easily find answers to your questions on the internet.
The operating pressure of the 9615A stapler gun ranges between 60 and 100 PSI, making it suitable for a wide range of materials to work with. This is a great advantage over an electric stapler that limits you to a single pressure. With this gun, you can test out a few staples first and see if the chosen pressure is the right one for the project you want to work on. This makes it so you don’t have to risk ruining the material you are working with.
Unlike other pneumatic powered staple guns, the Surebonder 9615A has its own safety mechanism. This way, you can be sure that an accidental push of the button won’t send staples flying everywhere. When you are ready to shoot, just release the mechanism and the gun will be ready to use. The 3/8 inch crown 22-gauge fine wire staples are ideal for this gun and they will work wonders in a wide range of projects. The Surebonder 300 Series staples are perfect for this stapler, but you can also load similar staples that correspond to the given measurements. The great thing about this gun, is that it can be used for more than just upholstery. It can be used for many other similar projects, such as insulation, automotive vinyl, or roofing felt.
There are some reviewers out there who complain about jams, but it seems they are isolated issues which only appear once every several hundred staples. You will hardly find a jam-proof staple gun on the market, and you will definitely not find it for the low price of this staple gun. That being said, it is important to understand this is a really good tool that works wonder for its low price. Keep in mind that it is not targeted to work well with large scale projects that go beyond the range of upholstery and similar tasks. Keep it within the limits and you will enjoy a long-lasting stapler.
