GENERAL SAFETY INFORMATION.
WARNING! Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure to follow the warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. Please retain all warnings and instructions for future reference.
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tools or battery-operated
(cordless) power tools.
This 2 in 1 Nail & Staple Gun is intended for domestic use only and should not
be used for commercial or industrial purposes.
This tool is not intended for use by persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instructions concerning the use of the tools by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the tool.
WORK AREA SAFETY.
Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents. Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
Keep bystanders, children and animals away whilst operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control. ELECTRICAL SAFETY.
Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering the power tools will increase the risk of electric shock.
Stay alert, watch what you are doing, and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use power tools whilst you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury. Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective equipment such as a dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce the risk of personal injury.
Always wear eye protection. Any power tool can throw foreign objects into your eyes and cause permanent eye damage. Always wear safety goggles (not glasses) that comply with ANSI safety standard Z87.1. Every day glasses have only impact resistant lenses. They are not safety glasses.
- Wearing glasses or goggles not in compliance with ANSI Z87.1 when operating this tool could cause serious injury.
- Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off position before connecting to the power source and/
or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tools. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch, or energising power tools that are switched on, invites accidents.
- Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench or key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
- Dress appropriately. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts to prevent them from becoming caught in the tool.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USE.
Know your 2 in 1 Nail and Staple Gun. Do not plug the tool into the power source until you have read and understand the information in this manual.

IMPORTANT PRODUCT CARE INFORMATION
These tools use Lithium-ion battery cells. Care must be taken to ensure both the safety and life of the pack is maintained. Ensure you have read all of the safety information in the previous pages before using the tools.
Safety devices and circuitry for this tool are located in the battery pack of this tool. The battery pack is a vital component, not just for the power source, but also for the full safety control for both the charging and tools operation. Treat the battery pack with care and within the guidelines in this manual. If the pack does become immersed in water or any other liquid, is subject to a severe drop or does not operate within the guidelines of this
Instruction manual, discontinue use immediately and have it checked.
The battery pack is an integral component of these tools and is fitted with thermal safety devices. Running the tool at close to maximum load, or continual resetting of the overload, will cause the battery pack to overheat. When a pre-set cell temperature is detected, the battery pack will automatically stop operating and will not restart until it has cooled to a safe level. Should this occur, DO NOT force-cool the pack by placing in a freezer or similar. Allow the battery pack time to cool naturally.
Avoid overloading the tool during operation. The tool will stop automatically if overloaded. Overload may occur for a number of reasons, including when the tool is pushed too hard, or when using an attachment greater than what is specified. NOTE: The battery is more susceptible to overloading when at the lower end of the charge.
The low voltage cut-out feature will operate when the voltage drops below a pre-set value. When this occurs, the tool will stop operating automatically.
Either insert another charged battery into the tool or recharge the existing battery before proceeding.
NOTE: Attempting to restart the tool in this condition, without either recharging the battery or installing a battery with charge, will lead to the tool restarting and stopping again after only a few seconds of operation.
These safety devices have been fitted for the safety, reliability and life of the tools.
WHEN TO CHARGE THE BATTERY.
- The Battery should be fully charged before use.
- After it has been used and charged a few times, the battery should be charged for 1 hour using the fast 1 hour charger. The battery pack can be recharged at any time during use, provided the pack has not overheated.
- If the battery pack starts to cut out due to low voltage, or tasks previously undertaken can no longer be performed, it is recommended to stop using the tool and recharge the battery.
- For storage, it is recommended to recharge the battery between 50% and 75% charge.
