Useful little tool
The best tool for removing staples. I used this to remove heavy grade staples that had been used to tack carpet underlay to a wooden floor. The underlay had perished and been ripped up, leaving hundreds of the little monkeys holding fast to the floorboards. Nightmare! Started the job with a screwdriver: nearly impaled my left hand, and it was taking an age. This tool was rather expensive, but it made the job a lot easier, and is capable of removing even the heaviest grade staples. Simply insert the triangular end under the staple and push down on the handle Voila! Keep to hand a pair of pincers / pliers too, because if your staple has perished and breaks, you need something to pull it out with. This tool makes life a lot easier (and the job a lot quicker): not cheap, but worth it. To be recommended.

Poor quality item dont buy!!!
Before deciding to buy this item I shopped around online. Saw bad reviews for some cheaper items so decided to go for this item which was double the price of some of the others because it had good reviews and I thought it made sense to buy quality from a well know store. I was wrong! Used click and collect do picked up straight away. Which was handy. Got home and started work on the project with my new item. I was looking forward to this as I had been using a knife before I chose to buy this which worked well but was a hard slog. Anyway long story short. It broke in the first staple. Can't be used again. Will have to go out of my way tomorrow to return it. And still no staple remover. Back to my cheap b&m knife for now. Which is densely doing better than this item. Take my advice and avoid.

Remove staples easily
Removing staples is never a pleasure but this tool makes it a doddle.

Good Little Tool
I needed to remove staple from the base of a chair seat, and this little gadget did the job far more quickly and easily than a screwdriver.
I would have given it 5 stars BUT for all its simplicity, a guide as to the best way to use it would be useful. I can see that the pointy bit goes under the staple and lifts it, but some of the staples still did not life out cleanly and had to be pulled with pliers. This is probably my poor technique, hence my plea for some guidance.
It was great that I could buy it online and then collect it 20 mins later from my local store - and they were very friendly and helpful.
