This is a versatile 2-in-1 unit that operates as both a staple gun (for use with insulation, ceiling tile, carpet padding, etc) and a brad nailer (for use with molding, picture frames, hobby projects, etc). This product includes a hi/low power feature that allows you to tailor the output force to the material you are stapling into. The anti-jam feature prevents staples from being jammed. The 8 Ft. cord, which is much longer than the cord found on some electric staple guns, prevents you from having to use an extension cord for every job. This product also has a soft grip handle and trigger for comfort.
