As with any project you have to ensure you use appropriate safety precautions because accidents can and will happen. Tools used, but not limited to are as follows: plyers, staple pullers, soft mallet, tack hammer and web puller just to name a few. Some of the tools can be very sharp and cause injury if not properly handled. Become familiar with each and understand what you are using them for. Pulling old staples from a piece of furniture is simple enough, but can cause injury if you are not careful. That is why wearing gloves and safety glasses are recommended if you are just starting out to protect your hands and your eyes.
