The sturdy professional tacker J-19 EADHG has a long-lasting cast zinc housing which assures a low recoil level and a non-fatiguing work action. Its long narrow nozzle enables it to even function in hard to reach places like, for example, corners and grooves. The clear staples window allows you to quickly and easily check on your “ammunition” and 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.
In contrast to the other hand tackers that we have on offer, this tacker will also deliver brad nails. In addition, it has many other functions which make many jobs that much easier to perform: the impact force adjuster allows you to set the impact force according to the hardness of the material you are working on. When working on hard substrates (e.g. hardwood), the tacker can be set to the multi-stroke function if the staple has not been driven completely home on the first impact. The distance holder enables you to place your staples in absolutely parallel rows.
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.
