    I used fence staples, the kind you use a hammer on.

    I used 1-1/4" x 3/8 galvanized staples with a pneumatic stapler.

    I might use staples if I had an air stapler. Screw with washer is quick and more secure than a staple.

    Lath screws. Come galvanized, in several lengths for different needs. Basically just a screw with a washer built into it.

    I also use the big galvanized staples, or I did before I stopped using wood.
    If you want to disassemble an old cage or remove staples for another reason,
    I use this awl to remove them. I also use it to remove my J clips when necessary.

    We used screws and fender washers then covered with wood strips.
