What size staples did you use to re-staple the new cover and where did you find them?

When I did it I used spray glue and a staple gun from the hardware store. I wish I knew the size, I know we also used that staple gun to hang Christmas lights. Good luck.

No staples, just 3M aerosol glue.

I recovered an old Aitken seat with these:

They never poked through or gave me any other issues.

I used neoprene based glue but no stapples in the past. It just have to be done the right way.
