Stanley Bostitch Heavy Duty Manual Stapler Model – BT160HL. My friend has this hand staple with Hi/Lo. 2 in 1 Brad/Staples. Never seen a switch on the bottom with a (+/-) on it. Was curious if any LumberJocks know exactly the purpose of this switch?

I do have the BT160 Stapler, not the HL model. But I have 3 different electric Bostich Staplers and a air Bostich Stapler. These have a dial to set the depth of stapling. I think the HL setting is for depth of staple & brad.

Have your say...
