A hammer tacker is an alternative to a stapler. Both tools use heavy-duty staples, but a tacker is used like a hammer whilst a stapler has a trigger mechanism. Hammer tackers are used to fasten down material such as flooring, roofing, and cables.
What Are Hammer Tackers Used For?
Their primary purpose is to drive staples and tacks into hard surfaces. They are designed for roofing, house wrap, insulation, flooring, underlay and felting. Look for tackers with easy-slide reload latches, anti-jam mechanisms and soft moulded grips for comfort. Some models also have a bottom loading design and belt clip for ease of use.
