A tacker is a drive-in device. A drive-in device is a power tool to drive home fixing accessories like nails, tacks and staples. Depending on the type of fixing accessories used, the tool is usually referred to as nailer, tacker or stapler.

A tacker can replace a conventional hammer. The electromagnetic striking mechanism is capable of 30 single impacts per minute. Built-in electronic controls allow the infinitely variable adjustment of the hammer force. One or two staples can be driven in simultaneously. Basically, the impact is only triggered off if the tacker nose is pressed firmly against the material. Tackers are powered by mains power, manual force or compressed air.
