Re: T-25 Wire Staplers

Mel Chase

Several years ago a member of one of the io groups posted using a stapler to tie down wiring.  What a great idea it replaced all my other methods.  Adding a piece of .080 styrene to the bottom of the stapler near the head will prevent the staple from completely seating.   This will maintain a space for a nylon zip tie or even a bread bag tie.  First thing is to put the staple where needed and parallel with the wire.  Slide the zip tie, etc through the staple and wire and cinch up.  Leave a loop if all that is needed is holding the wire out of the way like a switch machine actuator/throw arm or string more wires at a later time.  Very easy and cost effective.  Mel
