    Seat cover replacement

    I ordered a new seat cover for my 2003 seadoo GTI and was wondering about properly installing. I ordered some stainless steel T-50 staples and bought a bostich electric stapler but am having a hard time getting the staples to consistently penetrate the plastic of the seat to hold the cover on. Not sure what I need but hopefully someone out there can help. I assume I need either a different stapler and/or different staples. Anyone have a direction for me and some tips on properly replacing the cover. It is from Blacktip Jetsports. Thanks for your response.

    T50 is the worst option you can use. Waaaay to much surface area to penetrate, and those elec staplers arent powerful enough. You need a pneumatic 22 gauge stapler

    These are decent, i prefer 1/4" staples for seat covers, but longer ones are perfect for things like putting carpet onto bunks. Once you have an air stapler, youll find all kinds of uses

    Donít know if thereís a harbor freight near you, Iíve got one from there similar to the link above for about 17$ works great. Donít forget to adjust the depth on the wheel at the tip though, might should shoot a couple practice staples into a spot where it wonít matter

    I purchased the same above from Harbor Freight for $15.
    Worked perfect. My electric stapler didn't do much of anything. But ditto on the proper adjustment, I shot one that went through the seat. Too much psig.IMG_1680.JPG
