Full Answer

A narrow crown stapler is a hand-held power tool that uses compressed air to force staples into a surface at a high velocity when the trigger is squeezed. The staples in a narrow crown stapler range from 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches long. Due to its small width, a narrow crown stapler is used to get into tight spaces and leave smaller marks.
