New Seat Cover

So I have looked everywhere for the size of staples to use on reattaching my new seat cover, but I have found nothing. If anyone has changed one out do you remember the size ?

I went and bought a cheap, http://www.harborfreight.com/20-gaug...ler-68029.html

And used the 20 Gauge zinc plated. Crown: 7/16" by 5/16" length staples. says compare to Arrow T50 Fasteners. They looked a tad longer than oem, but worked well. And so did the cheap air tool, from HF. And btw i had a coupon it was like $18.00 or so...

All I did was popped a original staple out of seat, and went to store. I think OEM staples are like 9/32" in length but not for sure.
