  • RYOBI Nailers and Staplers are designed for specific fasteners compatible to these RYOBI tools. 
  • Using incorrect-sized fasteners can be dangerous, and will result in the tool jamming or breaking - voiding the warranty. 
  • Ensure the nails:
    • Are compatible with the requirements of your Nailer or Stapler.
    • Are in good condition.
    • Are straight.
    • Don’t have signs of rust or corrosion, as this can cause damage to the tool.
