Hart 20V cordless glue gun HPGL01

Hard glue gun sticks with wireless convenience

For quick repairs and projects around the home, a glue gun is a tool you’ll want to have with you wherever you go. We’re taking a closer look at the Hart 20V cordless glue gun to help you decide whether it’s worth cutting the cable on such a handy tool.


Use the Hart 20V glue gun

While wired glue guns often start as soon as they are plugged in, this is not the case with a cordless model. You can insert the battery safely without heating it. When you’re ready to start heating, slide the switch next to the trigger to the on position and a red LED on top will let you know it’s active.

As for the heat-up time, it will take around 3 1/2 minutes to reach temperature, comparable to wired models you may have used.

One of the things we really like about Hart’s design is the two-finger trigger. Glue guns use the pressure from the trigger to manually push the glue stick forward. The ability to use two fingers instead of one finger spreads the effort and is very helpful when your hand strength is no longer what it used to be.

With glue guns, containing drops and avoiding burns is important, and we really like Hart’s self-contained ability. Instead of resting on a stand that bends the nose down at a hard angle and does little to prevent dripping, the Hart HGPL01 uses its 20V battery as a support to stand on.

There is still a little dripping, so it is advisable to put a paper towel under your nose to protect your work surface. The dripping here isn’t as bad as some of the glue guns we’ve used because the nose is pointing down at such a large angle.

Of course, it’s the cordless convenience that takes the cake in the end. Laying down the power cord helps you maneuver around your project and lets you take the tool with you wherever the work is, whether or not you have a power source there.
