GENERAL SAFETY RULES
WARNING! Read and understand all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions
listed below may result in electric shock, fire or serious personal injury. The warnings,
cautions, and instruction discussed in this instruction manual cannot cover all possible
conditions and situations that may occur. It must be understood by the operator that
common sense and caution are a factor which cannot be built into this product, but must
be supplied by the operator.
WORK AREA
1. Keep your work area clean and well organized. Cluttered benches and dark areas
invite accidents.
2. Do not operate power tools in explosive atmosphere, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases, or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the
dust or fumes.
3. Keep bystanders, children and visitors away while operating a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
1. Double insulated tools are equipped with a polarized plug (one blade is wider than
the other.) This Plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug dose not
fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still dose not fit, contact a qualified
electrician to install a polarized outlet. Do no change the plug in any way.
2. Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry the tool. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately.
Damaged cords may create a risk of fire.
3. Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators.
4. Don’t expose Staple Gun to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
5. During normal operation, if anything happens, the power should be cut off at once
and the tool should be checked and repaired
3
PERSONAL SAFETY
1. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a
power tool. Do not use tool while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or
medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in
serious personal injury.
2. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your
hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. It is recommended to wear
protective goggles, gloves, sturdy non-slipping shoes and an apron while operating
the machine.
3. Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is in LOCK position before connecting the
unit to a power outlet. Carrying tools with your finger on the switch invites accidents.
4. Remove adjusting wrench before turning the tool on. A wrench or a key that is left
attached to a rotating part of the tool may result in personal injury.
5. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing and
balance enables better control of the tool in unexpected situations.
6. Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid safety
shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
TOOL USE AND CARE
1. Use clamps or other practical way to secure and support the work piece to a stable
platform. Holding the work by hand or against your body is unstable and may lead to
loss of control.
2. Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for your application. The correct tool will do
the job better and safer at the rate for which it is designed.
3. Do not use tool if switch does not turn ON or OFF. Any tool that cannot be controlled
with a switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
4. Disconnect battery pack from tool or place the switch in locked or OFF position
before making any adjustments, changing accessories or storing the tool. Such
preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the tool accidentally.
5. Store idle tools out of reach of children and other untrained persons. Tools are
dangerous in the hands of untrained users. They should be kept away from work
area.
6. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and any other
condition that may affect the tools operation. If damaged, have the tool serviced
before using. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained tools.
7. Use only accessories that are recommended by the manufacturer for your model.
Accessories that may be suitable for one tool may become hazardous when used on
another tool.
SERVICE
1. Tool service must be performed only by qualified repair personnel. Service or
maintenance performed by unqualified personnel could result in a risk of injury.
2. When servicing a tool, use only identical replacement parts. Follow instructions in the
maintenance section of this manual. Use of unauthorized parts or failure to follow
Maintenance Instructions may create a risk of electric shock or injury.

DETERMINING PROPER STAPLE OR NAIL LENGTH
In choosing the proper staple or nail length for the job there are two basic things to
consider:
1. Thickness of the material to be stapled
2. Hardness of the wood
As a general rule, in hardwood, approximate 3/16” to 1/4” penetration into the wood is
sufficient and for soft wood up to approximately 3/8” should be sufficient. However, if
the staple used “stands away” from the work - this means that the staple or nail is too
long. In that case we recommend the next shorter length for desired results.

cleaning agents and solvents are harmful to plastic and other insulated parts. Do not
