20130200129APPARATUS FOR DRIVING AND REMOVING FASTENERS - The present disclosure describes embodiments of a construction apparatus, or tool, that can drive and remove fasteners (e.g., staples). These embodiments have a handle portion, a head portion, and a fastener guide that orients the fastener in a ready-to-be deployed state. Actuation of the head portion can transmit a driving force to the fastener, thereby moving the fastener from the ready-to-be deployed state to a deployed state, which in one example drive the fastener into a target object (e.g., a board). The construction apparatus can also come equipped with a remover element that can transmit a removal force applied to the construction tool to the fastener. In one embodiment, the construction apparatus finds particular use with electrical staples, as the proposed designs can prevent damage to electrical cables, prevent the end user from striking his hand and fingers, and eliminate the need for carrying and/or using additional tools to mount and remove staples.08-08-2013
