At the end of the frame, under the projection of the top bar, through the end bar into the top bar. That way the top bar doesn't become separated from the end bar when prying up the frame.

I usually pry a bit sideways between the ends of the top bars to "crack" the frames loose before lifting.

If you're using wedge top bars be sure and remove the wedge before stapling otherwise you may end up stapling the wedge to the top bar.  For the staple that goes through the side bar and into the top bar place the staple about 1/4" or so from the end of the side bar so that there is wood left.  If you staple too close to the top bar then there won't be much wood in the side bar for the staple to hold to.  Place the staple a bit off-center so that the staple will go into the top bar where the thicker wood is (where the wedge isn't removed).  Naturally you'll need to aim the staple at a bit of an angle going into the wood.

At least that's how I do it, but I'm no pro.  Smiley

I've also found that stapling can be "interesting" in that sometimes those staple legs will turn and exit the wood frame at unwanted places.  Be sure to keep your hands clear of any of those possible areas.  Needle nose pliers and small vise-grips are handy to remove some of these errant staples.  If you end up with a leg sticking out and removing it might damage the wood too much then grab the tip of the leg and bend it at a 90-degree angle to towards the wood....then hammer it into the wood.  This way the point won't be sticking out to get your finger, hive tools, whatever...
