The Air Locker U630E is a new entrant into the market of upholstery staple guns. When compared with some of the more popular brands, the U630E has quite a few advantages. One of the things to note about the U630E is that it is capable of firing at a maximum of 20 staples per minute, or 70 stitches per minute. This is by far the fastest rate that an electric upholstery staple gun has ever gone. It also means that you can get finished staples in a matter of seconds.

When comparing this new brand to some of the biggest players in the field, the U630E actually outshines them. The resistance is a lot better than many of the alternatives on the market and that is vital, when working with such a heavy duty polymer.

When you are looking at the side of your machine you will be able to see that it actually has vertical ball-bearings in the side of the wall. This basically means that the U630E is hugging the wall a lot better than any competitor and this in turn makes working with it a lot easier.

There are a few really great conveniences that come with all of the design choices that the U630E have made. First of all, the tot of the ergonomics, there is a very easy pull out to adjust the tension settings on the machine. You can pick between four different thicknesses of staples and this makes the machine very adaptable.

Another great bit about this machine is the side loading of the staples. This feature has actually never been available before on any of the staple guns, and it really makes the design a lot better. There is no longer any need for you to have a professional staple gun. With this side loading feature, you simply pull out the side of your machine and you are able to load up to 165 staples in a matter of seconds. Not only that, but you can continue to use the staples with house or office electrical systems, which is essential for places where these staple guns are going to be used.
