Say Goodbye to Fastener Jams

Nevertheless, during the few occasions that jams do occur, you can quickly clear the culprits and keep on working without a disruption in the workflow.
Dual Action Trigger for Rapid Fastening
There are two ways in which contact actuation works in the SNS41 stapler, for sequential operation or bottom-fire mode depending on the type of work and speed you want. When you position the tip against the surface and pull the trigger, you get regular sequential operation. If you want rapid firing for larger pieces of work, pull the trigger first and place the tip against the surface. Every time the tip and surface make contact, a staple is pushed in with bottom-fire mode, letting you rapidly shoot staples in high production projects.
