Black & Decker 5700 Powershot Forward Action Stapler

The Powershot Forward Action stapler is a heavy-duty staple gun whose squeezing trigger puts pressure on the front of the gun to ensure staples are driven flush to the surface. It requires less force to staple and does not kick up like traditional staple guns. Stapler sets 1/4" thru 9/16" heavy-duty staples and has nailing capability for driving 9/16" brad nails. Other features include a soft-grip handle, all metal housing, and staples-remaining window. UL listed. 2-year LMW. Made in USA. Warning: Some dust created by using this power tool contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
