All the Details
To rent a stapler, use this “Rental” page on the Schwarz
1. Select the stapler or multiple staplers you wish to use.
2. Select the staples you need for the job, and any other items you may want to
purchase like the StockAde Staple Mate fence pliers or insulators.
3. Then complete the online transaction. Your credit card or
PayPal account will be charged as if you were purchasing the stapler and your
order will be shipped within 24 hours. (Holidays or inclement weather excluded.)
4. Receive the Stapler (save the stapler packaging and return shipping label).
5. Use your stapler right away! Rental charges begin the day after you receive it.
6. Send the stapler back in the package it was received in using the return label provided by dropping it off at a UPS location.
The daily rental charge does not include the time
spent in transit between the SEC warehouse and your location, however there is
a 3-day minimum rental charge.
Once the stapler is back at the SEC warehouse, your card
will be refunded the purchase price of the stapler you rented, less the rental
As an example, if you place a rental order for an ST400 and purchase a carton
of staples that ship to you on January 1.
Your card is charged on January 1 for
$798* being the retail cost. (*plus shipping)
Your order arrives on January 3 and you use the
stapler on the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th.
You then return the stapler to a UPS location on the 8th, and it
arrives back at the SEC warehouse on the 10th.
In this example, your
card would be refunded $499. You would only be charged for the 4 days of rental
The fine print
We will keep it as simple as possible!
If you rent a stapler and the total rental days is equal
or greater than the cost of the stapler, we will inform you that the stapler is
yours to keep. For the ST400 that is 14 rental days, for the ST400i that is 19
Transit days are calculated by UPS. We do not charge for
the day the stapler arrives since that is usually later in the day.
If the stapler arrives damaged or fails during the job,
return it immediately and another will be sent once UPS has recorded the return
package. Same rules apply for the replacement stapler, no charge for transit
times. Minimum 3-day rental fee applies to the whole order plus any additional days
It is very important to return the stapler to a UPS store
or UPS designated drop off location as soon as possible once you are done
stapling because rental fees continue to apply until UPS has scanned the return
