Can I staple 32-036 drawer guide?

A home owner from USA says:
I've received part 32-036 rear drawer guide. Thanks for the quick service! The original had small staples/tacks. Can I use a staple gun to attach it or will this crack the plastic or do I use staple tacks and a tack hammer?

I've seen the 32-036 stapled before, yes. I actually just removed one from stock and experimented with a piece of wood. First I nailed it with a #17 gage nail. Then I drilled a hole and installed it with a #6 screw. Both installations worked fine and the plastic did not crack.

Thanks for doing the experiment and quick response!
