What to use to install a seat cover?

I am doing some work on my 2002 KX125. I am now trying to install a new seat cover but ran into a problem. My staple gun, an Arrow T-50, will not fully seat the staples. 1/4" staples. Most of the time they are barely in the plastic and can be pulled out by hand.

What type of stapler should be used to install a seat cover?

Thanks

i purchased an electric staple gun from lowes. it sucked. did exactly what you described. so i picked up an heavy duty stanley model TR110. just a basic, manual staple gun. worked awesome. Not a single wrinkle or kink, looks like it came from the factory.:thumbsup:

Looks great. I'll look for that model.

Don't know if you've done this before but what I've found is that it's not always the stapler. Make sure you put a lot of force down or the stapler seems to "jump". Basically putting the force of the gun up instead of into the plastic. I can always tell from the sound whether it went in or not.

Also, it helps a lot if you can heat up the seat pan and cover. Either in the dryer, or with a heat gun.
