I have never seen 1/8" staples, I don't think they exist, but there are 3/16" staples out there. I don't think you'll find 3/16" leg staples for anything other than a gun that shoots fine wire staples. I use BEA 71 pneumatic staplers and staples, and 3/16" staples in both regular and stainless steel are available for them.

What kind of staple gun are you using? If you're looking for T-50 Arrow staples, look online, but I don't think they come shorter than 1/4" which should work for you anyway. I usually use 5/16" stainless.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
