The hand tacker J-09 XX is a robust professional tacker for universal use. The sturdy die-cast zinc housing provides, by virtue of its high weight, a buffer against recoil and a non-fatiguing work action. There is an inspection window displaying the number of staples that still remain. The patented safety release device ensures that the tacker can only be opened or refilled when it is safe. The locking mechanism in the handle makes sure that the handle is locked in position when not being used thereby preventing the possibility that a staple can be accidentally fired. If during your work both hands must be used, the tacker can simply be hung on your belt by means of the hook provided.
Tackers (staple guns) are very versatile tools when it comes to affixing materials like, for example, films, wire mesh, textiles, carpets, paper and cardboard as well as wood and derived timber products to materials that can accept nails.
There are two basic types of tackers: hand tackers in which the staples are driven manually by a spring and electric tackers and pneumatic tackers in which the staples are automatically driven into place. At this time our product line is limited to hand and electric tackers.
One of the most important considerations when buying a tacker is its weight. Working with the lighter version is less effort but it should be noted that it is the weight of the device which absorbs the recoil energy and therefore relieves the pressure to hand and wrist. In addition, heavier tackers, in the case of horizontal application, require a lot less impact to work.
Whether you decide to go with an electric tacker with a plastic housing or a hand tacker with a metal housing should primarily depend on how quickly and how often you will be using this tool. If time is an important consideration we recommend an electric tacker but if it is not to be used so often a hand tacker is good enough.
Last but not least, the type of staple to be used should be taken into account in your choice of tacker. We have on offer various tackers which will not work with all the different types of staples. Please keep this in mind when buying your tool.
