Staples are slice cut and have plenty of holding power. The sharp points make them easy to drive into the wood. Fence staples are made from galvanized wire. This gives them good protection from rust. They are available in six lengths or sizes: 3/4", 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2", 1-3/4" and 2". The 3/4" staples are formed from 14 gauge galvanized wire. These are recommended for lighter gauge wire meshes, such as 20 gauge hexagonal chicken wire, 23 gauge 1/4"x1/4" mesh and 19 gauge 1/2"x1/2" mesh. They have a 3/16" spread at the shoulders. 1" through 2" staples are made with heavier 9 gauge galvanized wire. You can use these to hold the heavier gauge meshes - deer fence, field fence, horse fence, vinyl coated welded wire etc. The spread at the shoulders is 1/4". A longer length will give you more holding power. Approximate quantities per pound: 3/4" - 350 1" - 100 1-1/4" - 80 1-1/2" - 70 1-3/4" - 60 2" - 50 Galvanized fence staples are not recommended for holding plastic meshes. The staple can cut into and even through the mesh if driven too far. And if the mesh is free to rub against the staple, the staple can chafe through the mesh, ultimately breaking it. A batten works best for securing plastic fence and meshes to a wood post.
