Unlike most other fastening tools, a stapler is often used for temporary jobs, such as tacking up a poster, a drop cloth, or plastic window covering.

To make it easier to take down the item, tape an ice cream stick to the bottom of the stapler before stapling. That way, each staple will stick up a little so you can easily pull it out later with pliers.
