PALLET WOOD | Remove Staples From Wooden Pallets Easily (or at least EASIER)

Dual Remove.jpg

A pair of vice grips, and a pry bar

makes short work of removing staples from wooden pallets. Some of my pallets were loaded with them. I tried other methods to remove them, but this worked best. It seems that the staples have glue on them, making them resistant to extraction.

I had to pound some of the staples

from the bottom, a bit, to expose more of the head to get the vice grips clamped on good. It doesn't take much though. I thought I could just pound them all the way out, but they bend easily. Also you have to still pull them out at the end, so I just started using the vice grips at the beginning. It just saves time, and is easy once you get into the rhythm.

Two at a time. (Kind of like pulling teeth.)


Pallet wood makes great trim, if you like the rustic look.


If the above method fails...


Let the sparks fly!
