The Black and Decker Powershot staple gun accepts 1/4-inch to 9/16-inch heavy-duty staples and 9/16-inch type 13 nails. This particular staple gun is very handy for installing insulation, weatherstripping, mesh screens, carpeting, cabling and roof paper. It does a good job of driving nails into mouldings as well. It's a breeze to load with staples once you know how to do it, but nails require a bit more concentration.
