Save your fingers from having to hold each staple with a barbed staple starter. This tool is compatible with either 1.5" fence staples and prevents them from mushrooming when driving into harder wood posts.
It's very simple to use; just insert the staple into the slot and hammer on the other flat end to set the staple to a proper depth. We suggest using the staple starter to start the staple into the post and finish driving the staple into the post with a hammer. *If you push the staple starter into a post when driving a staple, the head of the starter can break.
*Note: This item does not work with 2" extra wide barbed staples; they don't fit in the starter.
