Seat Cover Staple Length

Recommended Posts

FJRPittsburgh

I purchased a Seat Concepts seat kit.  Does anyone know what length staples can be used when stapling on the new seat cover?  The staples I removed had a VERY short leg length....maybe only an 1/8 of an inch long.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

I think I read that 6mm, 1/4” are recommended. Not 100% certain but pretty sure

I have used 5/32 and 5/16. If you are stapling into a nylon base, I think that 5/32 should ok. It partly depends on the thickness of the material. You could do a test. You will be thinking also about what is the other side of the base when overlong staples might stick out.
