I do all my own. I use a flat blade screwdriver and a pair of pliers to pull out the old staples and then an indrustrial grade stapler with at least 3/8 staples then take your time. I tack it in a few places first to make sure it sits where I want it then slowly work all the way around it pulling it tight and removing wrinkles as I go

A good trick is leave it in the sun for a few hours to warm it up or I use a heat gun very lightly on the edges so they don't wrinkle. I start at front and evenly work my way back. I also end up taking a bunch of staples out as I go to adjust it where wrinkles show. Take ur time. An extra set of hands works wonders.

Just like these guys have said. I staple the front and back so it is a little up in the center. Then staple each side then work my way in between.

I think mine is a Stanley it all metal. Basicly anything will work if it has the stones to push a a staple into the hard plastic pan. Also you have to keep good pressure on it otherwise it will kickback in your had and the staple won't go the whole way. Same reason you have to keep a solid wrist when shooting a pistol so it won't jam

Yup like Kyle said make sure u keep a steady hand. I'm on the smaller side. I would have to put all my weight on it and make sure it was flat. Then some of the staples wouldn't sit right so I took a big flathead the size of the staple n would lay it ontop and then take a hammer and tap it in.

I Use one just like these guys it is a squeeze stapler. It works great. Just have to really push hard and hold it flat.

Well surely that was a given. No one needs to be told that, otherwise, they are doomed from the outset.
