S’been a while since I’ve come out with a new fan-dangled tool review. So I got the gaffer to get some of Rapid’s brand spanking new stapler range - The Rapid Alu900 range. It has a fancy patented Powercurve technologyTM which reduces the force needed to operate hand staplers by 65%.

Developed by physiotherapists, the technology reduces hand and shoulder strain when stapling.

The Alu range has a 53 Series version and a 13 Series version for general purpose and upholstery stapling and also a 140 series version which is better on those fine fabrics, vinyl and leather.

Uses include: Upholstery – Textiles – Carpets – Canvas prints – Netting – Leather - Thin Board - Home decor

3 Tips You Need When Buying an Upholstery Tool

1 - Power

When you’re purchasing an upholstery stapler – make sure to consider what power is needed and what power is available. We would always recommended getting an air powered staple gun (used with a compressor) wherever possible as these have the most reliable power source and are easy to service and maintain. Electric and battery tools are another option for the  DIY-ers and up-cyclers, however when used in hard wood they can have difficulty sending the staple all the way in.
