The right tool for the job is what I always say. Upholstery takes an immediate toll on your body. Some of the worst damage is done during the staple removal process. This is why it is important to use tools that make a minimal impact on your body as upholstery becomes your new obsession, and maybe one day, your only source of income.
This staple remover works for both north and south paw artists. The sharp, pointy ends make getting deep embedded staples out of softwood a breeze, and the angled head allows you to leverage the tool to ease staples out rather than spend your time and energy yanking and pulling them out of the frame. The slots on the ends hold your staple so you can easily twist the staples out of their confinement, and pull them out in one piece. By far highly recommended for people who already have issues with their hands and grip.
