Very easy to use. Staples don't twist like other staplers. Great for small hands to use.
This works great when you find yourself in a pinch - great to use when castrating a piglet with an inguinal hernia, or closing a minor wound when the piglet jerks and you find yourself with a scalpel slice in your hand (don't ask!). We not only use these on the farm, but we also take them on camping trips, when we travel abroad, or any other time that an injury might occur and a hospital may be far away!
