Example: 10-foot long two-by lumber

  • 2 staples support up to 10 linear feet (one 10-foot board)
  • 3 staples support up to 20 linear feet (two 10-foot boards)
  • 4 staples support up to 30 linear feet (three 10-foot boards)
  • 5 staples support up to 40 linear feet (four 10-foot boards)

See our common lumber length charts to assess how many staples you’ll need to complete projects of varying lengths according to the lumber length you use.


For best results use:

  • a 16 ounce rubber mallet
  • two-by lumber (up to 2"x6") suitable for outdoor ground contact like pressure treated lumber or cedar.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are 2xEDGE staples made of?

2xEDGE staples are made of 16 gauge raw steel.

How long do 2xEDGE staples take to rust?

2xEDGE staples are made of raw steel. That means they might arrive on your doorstep without rust, or with some rust. In time they will rust.

Depending on your environmental conditions (location, climate, air quality, etc.), your staples may rust very quickly, or they may take more time to fully develop a rust patina. The staples we've installed in the Midwest (high humidity in summer, snow in winter, lots of spring rain) have developed a full rust patina within 6 to 8 months of installation.

More info about 2xEDGE and rust is available on our site.

How long will 2xEDGE staples last?

According to the steel fabricator that produces 2xEDGE staples, we can expect 2xEDGE staples to be viable and perform for many years, and likely last longer than the pressure treated lumber they support.

Depending on conditions, this can be decades. Assuming the worst conditions, we can expect the staples to perform as expected for at least 10-15 years.

Can I paint or coat my 2xEDGE?

Yes, you can coat your 2xEDGE. A Google search on "coatings for raw steel" or "how to protect raw steel" will turn up many options.

What size of two-by lumber do 2xEDGE staples work with?

2xEDGE staples have been tested with 2x3, 2x4, and 2x6 lumber. The staples are nine and a half inches (9.5") long and they fasten these types of lumber to the ground just great.
