A tool sold at Bunnings has been recalled after it was found it may discharge nails or staple unintentionally.

The Ryobi Airwave 2-in-1 brad nailer/stapler has been pulled from shelves in Bunnings stores across the country, the ACCC’s Product Safety said in an alert issued on Thursday.

The nailer-stapler is equipped with a mechanical interlock feature designed to prevent unintentional discharge of the nailer, but the safety device “can get stuck” and allow a nail or staple to discharge.

“The safety device can get stuck and allow a nail or staple to discharge through use of the trigger alone and not via the usual two-step actuation process,” the recall notice said.


“There is a risk of laceration injuries if the nailer/stapler discharges unintentionally.”

The item was manufactured between October 2021 and March 2024.

Customers can check the side of the nail magazine for the following date codes – Week (W) 43 and Year (Y) 2021 and all dates reaching up to Week (W) 9 and Year (Y) 2024.

If consumers find their product is included in the recall, they should stop using it immediately and return the product to a Bunnings store for a full refund.

They can also contact the Ryobi customer service team on 1300 859 017 or email to let them know you have purchased this product and if you need more information.
