The Stanley Sharpshooter Staple Gun is a heavy-duty staple gun you can use for upholstery, decorating, crafts or construction. The gun uses Stanley heavy duty staples from 1/4 inch to 9/16 inch long. A loading window on the front of the gun lets you see when you're almost out of staples, and the locking handle prevents staples from being fired off accidentally.
