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 recall@ryobi.com.au to let them know you have purchased this product and if you need more information.
