Best Electrical Cable Staples in 2020



HSAN 200 Pcs Cable Staples,Cable Staples Clips Cable Clips with Steel Nail Wall Wire Nails Clamps Nail-In Cable Clips for Wire Management 7mm Review:


To be absolutely fair, there is not much to say on these cable holders. I bought them mostly for the amount you receive in the packaging. You get a lot of bang for your buck without sacrificing the quality of the item itself. They work just as any other set of staples would; you pick out a staple, you get your cable or wire or whatever and align it to the wall within the staple, and you pound the nail portion into the wall. Easy and simple enough for anyone to do. Just be sure you know what size cable you want to use as these are size specific.



Gardner Bender PS-150Z Plastic Staple, ½ Inch., Secures Romex, UF & (NM) Non-Metalic Cable, Polyethylene - UV Resistant, Splinter Free, Application: 14/2, 12/2, 10/2 (NM) Non-Metalic Cable, 100 Pk., White Review:


The "Add-on" program allows Amazon to offer discounted price on a product that would be otherwise expensive to ship on their own. These Gardner Bender Plastic staple is one such classic example. To match the competitive prices of the local big box stores this seems the only viable option. The product is no different from any big box store. These are good quality plastic Staples at very affordable pricing. Rating the product with five stars!



Gardner Bender PS-150 Plastic Staple, ½ Inch., 14/2, 12/2, 10/2 (NM) Cable, Quick / Easy Installation, for Romex, UF, (NM) & More, 100 Pk., White Review:


These are by far the best wire staples i can find. I used the staple gun...it was not powerful enough. I used the regular metal staples but they are hard to negotiate and hold the wire in place at the same time. These are great because you can push the plastic part in to place, effectively holding the wire in place, then pound each nail in separately or at the same time. Hands don't get in the way and the points go in easily. No more bend staples. These are the only ones I would buy.



PARTH IMPEX Round Cable Wire Clips 4mm 6mm 8mm 10mm (Pack of 400) Cable Management RG6 RG59 CAT5 CAT6 RJ45 Electrical Ethernet Dish TV Speaker Wire Cord Tie Holder Single Coaxial Nail Clamps Review:


There are different sizes and I appreciate that. I used the small ones for the flat ethernet wire that I ran from the comcast box, which is in the living room, to my computer which I have on a table in the dining room. I used the larger ones for the exterior electrical extension cord but I had to use one up and one down, side by side because there is a nail only on one side of these and that is not nearly enough to hold heavier wire. I used the ittybitty ones to run the wires for my Amazon Cloud cams and they work very well except I would have done better to buy one of those pea hammers because I smashed my fingernail a couple of times. I would buy this set again and I would highly recommend it to my family and friends (who are already "borrowing" some....I'm such a sucker!)



Gardner Bender PS-75 Insulated Staples, ¾ Inch, Secures Romex, UF & (NM) Non-Metalic Cable, Polyethylene - UV Resistant, Splinter Free, 50 Pk, White Review:


I'm using these in drywall to help organize my networking closet. I'm doing 2 at a time cables of coax or cat6 in this (right side of pic) and these work very well. they stand up to a little tug if you're moving wires around. None have popped out yet while I have made several adjustments to organization. these work great.

The black clips are these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017VXNFVO/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

In the future, i think i'd use a staple gun also made by Gardner Bender as I was loaned one for some electrical work and it was simply quicker than hammer nail. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000MWTVJC/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1



Gardner Bender MS-500J Metal Cable Staple, Contractor Pack, ½ Inch, Secures: Romex Wire & (NM) Non-Metalic Cable, 500 Pk. Review:


Does a great job and easy to use. I was very impressed that they didn't bend when I used them on the hard woods. And the flat spot on the top is great for cables and such as it doesn't cut though them but holds them tight. Allowing you to be able to wrap the staple around the cable instead of it biting though it.



RG6 Cable Clip, White (100 pieces per bag) Review:


If only I had known about these earlier, I would have wired my upstairs with ethernet years ago. They do exactly what they are supposed to do, and I'm thinking about adding another wire parallel to it just to have ethernet in the room next to it.

EDIT: I added the other wire! Still have plenty of cable clips left over from the original bag. The entire upstairs and my downstairs office is now wired. Now for the bedroom...



Gardner Bender MSG-501 Heavy-Duty Cable Boss Staple Gun, Professional Grade, Secures (NM) Coax, & Low-Volt Cable, Red Review:


This review is for the Gardner Bender MSG-501 Heavy-Duty Cable Boss Staple Gun.
I love this tool, it saves me so much time and effort!
Some reviewers complain that it doesn't always fully seat the staple, and they feel the need to go back with a hammer. I have two comments on that. This stapler will probably not drive into OSB (as one reviewer was trying to do). OSB is hard, much harder than dimensional lumber. In dimensional lumber (2 X whatever) it works great. True that sometimes it doesn't fully seat the plastic bit. But why do you think that's a requirement? Unless it isn't held square and firmly, it always drives the staple sufficiently to do it's required function of managing the wire.
The other complaint people have is that it's hard to operate (strong spring). I think it's as hard to operate as it needs to be. It has to have enough force to drive the staple, and it has to be small enough to be manageable. I think they achieved the right balance. I wonder that someone hasn't come up with a battery powered one, but I guess it would be cost prohibitive for the average user.
