Minus -5 stars, if possible!

I purchased this a couple of years ago and never opened it until today. I loaded the staples and went to use it... it wouldn't 'fire'. When I further investigated and discovered there were no screws holding this POC together! The entire thing fell apart in my hands with springs and parts flying. A total piece of ****, don't waste your money. I am headed off to **************, nothing there could be as bad as this Craftsman Garbage!

So far so good.

|

I bought this to use for a couple of projects around the house and so far so good. I like the fact that it uses both staples and brad nails and comes with a box of both.

Easy, powerful!

|

This is a very easy and powerful one. It can do staplers, and nails too. It also include different sizes of staplers and nails as start-up package. I will like to recommend to anyone who wants to use a simple one for small works.

Looks good, but doesn't get the job done.

|

The easy fire concept seems good until you actually try it. Stapler has a good grip, easy to load and comes with a bunch of staples to get you started. However, once I started to staple some holiday lights I found the product to be underwhelming. Lots of misfires, staple jams and staples not going into the wood.

Okay Stapler

|

I purchased this for a small project. It worked great for the first five uses. The sixth time I used it the spring that holds the staples forward broke. Practically all plastic. Didn't stand up like a Craftsman tool should have.

Works great and has lots of power!

|

So far, I have just used the stapler function, so I cannot comment on the Brad Nailer portion. But, I imagine it works similarly. This little stapler has some power behind it. The red handle can be hard to depress over and over if you do not have the grip strength. But, that probably helps with all of the power. I was very impressed.

U need this!

|

revolutionary compared to conventional staple guns! Why didn't someone come up with this design sooner? Much less hand fatigue, and the built in wire guide is a huge bonus. I'll never own a conventional stapler again!

Great Stapler with Better Design

|

The design of this stapler is great and makes it much easier to use when stapling into harder woods. Works great and haven't had a stapler get lodged in the unit yet either. Would highly recommend.

Christmas Must

|

I bought this staplegun specifically with Christmas lights in mind! It is our first year decorating and I knew I could count on the Sears Hometown Store across the street to have a staplegun for us. Not only that, but it was on sale! My husband is a Craftsman fan as well (they come with at least a one year warranty), so I think I got some extra brownie points there too.

Not good

|

Had this stapler for a couple years never used that much. Insulated my garage first real job with it. Got two rolls up and it stopped working what fun! Nothing like having s tool break when you finally have a use for it.Fathers day gift guess it's the thought that counts. Will go buy a Dewalt tomorrow!

Not pleased

|

I have had this item a few years but have only used it maybe twice. I now have a footstool I am trying to cover. It does not work. Looks like new. No power to drive staples in.

better than my last one.

|

my last was the same but it quit working. no warranty so I but a new one exactly the same because when it works , it does the job better than the designs with the leverage in the opposite direction.

Great Staple Gun!

|

Very comfortable to use and hold in one hand. The spring action is smooth and powerful. I had no trouble driving both staples and nails into drywall, 2x4s and wooden boards. I've used this product several times on a few different projects without any issues. The build quality is very good and has a feel of a product intended to last for a long time.

It also comes with a starter pack of various staples and nails. I highly recommend it.
