Does it fit women sized hands? I'm concerned my average sized women's hands will be too small to get the leverage needed to squeeze the handle. I can't tell from the reviews if the writer is male or female.
Hello, there. The Heavy Duty T50 Staple Gun is a great tool for a variety of pro and DIY projects, but it does work best for people with a larger grip size. If you're looking for a staple gun for upholstery and light-duty crafting projects, we'd recommend the JT21CM (http://bit.ly/2p9JEKf). If you're looking for a staple gun for heavy-duty pro and DIY projects, we'd recommend the forward-action PowerShot 5700 (http://bit.ly/2ppLR45). Both of those are easier to squeeze for people with smaller grip sizes. If you have any more questions, feel free to reach out to us on social media, by email at [email protected]
or by calling 800-776-2228. Good luck! -Your Arrow Fastener team

Hello, can this staple gun be used for upholstering.
Hello, there. Yes, you can use the Heavy Duty T50 Staple Gun for upholstery projects. For most upholstery projects, we recommend using 3/8-inch (10mm) staples. The only exceptions to this would be using T50 staples in 5/16-inch (8mm) for harder woods, or our T50 staples in 1/2-inch (12mm) for thick material and batting. Good luck, and let us know if you have any further questions! -Your Arrow Fastener team

I am going to be building a cage using wood and wire. I will need to staple the the wire fencing to the wood. Can this be done using the Arrow T50 Staple gun?

Possibly world's worst staple gun
Pretty much the title. This has been the worst staple gun I shave ever used. It jams frequently. Often more than half the time (not exaggerating) I have to remove staples from the gun just to keep it clear. It can't cope with stapling upholstery fabric into 30 year old, cheap OSB, and clearing a jam only makes room for another.
At the end of one project, I had nearly 2 staples wasted for every staple that managed to do it's most basic job. I'm returning the gun at the earliest convenience, and am going to track down a product that meets it's most basic requirements and expectations.
Simply awful. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I can think of no reason other than to save perhaps 2 cents per stapler that Arrow could not include instructions and the warranty information in the package instead of making purchasers go to Arrow's website to obtain them.
I can think of no reason except to save perhaps five cent that Arrow couldn't include at least 10-20 staples with each stapler.
I can think of no reason except to save possibly 10 cents per stapler that Arrow could not pad the grip on ALL models instead of just on some, particularly considering the extreme pressure required on the grip to fire a staple.
CHEAP! CHEAP! CHEAP!
Your cutting corners to save pennies is not exactly a glowing endorsement of manufacturing in the USA!

Best one ever made!
I've got several staple guns,manual and electric and I always come back to this one, the trusty T50m! Even tho this one is probably a good 15+ yrs old it's still the only dependable one I have! My only complaint is the handle is harder than the rest to squeeze but only since my injury this past year and that's NOT anything to do with the quality of the staple gun. It's the only one that doesn't jam every 4 staples ....
I'm posting a picture of a staple gun that has the easiest handle to squeeze, it's a different brand but was wondering if there was a T50 with a handle like that? (Only posting 1picture, the 1st picture for reference) the other 2 are of my T50. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great product, excellent customer service
I have owned my T50 stapler for many years. As a homeowner, I don't use it regularly, but when I have a project, it has always worked flawlessly. Recently, while recovering some chair seats, a very small spring clip holding one of the main pins in the body of the stapler broke.
Before setting out to search local hardware stores for a possible replacement, I called Arrow to see if they could help, and help they did. They promptly mailed a few replacement clips (so I have a back-up if needed) at no charge.
This product will surely outlive me, and probably my heirs as well. Thank you Arrow for a great quality product and excellent customer support.

I've had one of these in my arsenal for many years, just purchased my third one recently (the other two grew legs). The two previous ones rarely jammed, I've probably have had 10 jam ups over the coarse of 2 to 3,000 staples, possibly more. I've shot 100 or so with this new one without a hitch so far. The one I recently purchased in store was the age-old design without the anti-jam mechanism but I'm not complaining. Needlenose pliers always did the trick quickly enough.

I was replacing another stapler when I started looking for another one, I'd gotten annoyed at having problems in loading the staples on the one I had. Yours caught my eye because it's made in the US and I of course recognized the brand also, Arrow has been around a long time.
I live in a mobile home so every wall has paneling. This stapler will be getting a lot of use over the next few years. So far I used the stapler on some of the paneling in the bathroom. I'd relocated an electrical switch to where it actually makes sense and had to put the wiring through the wall to the new place. This stapler did the job perfectly with some 9/16" staples.

Sturdy Heavy Duty hand stapler
My husband is the person using the stapler and he has to put lots of his weight behind pressing down to get the staple to go straight--and flat--into the wood that we are putting upholstery fabric onto. More than half the time, the staple goes part way in and is pressed into a U-shape in the middle of the staple that should be flat, or, straight across. Then we have to hammer it the rest of the way in. About every 10th staple has to be pulled out and that spot restapled.
But, it is actually better than the electric stapler we had bought--and returned. Perhaps it will do better when broken in, so to speak. Or if we learn to use it better!

This is a quality tool I purchased after returning a cheaper stapler from another company. It is sturdy and well built. I had to go back to the store to figure out how to release the staple holder tray. It is not obvious from the instructions. I used it to successfully upholster the wooden arms of my good office chair. This was my first such project and it turned out good. The only problem was: while working in a tight area at an angle, I was squeezing the stapler and it pinched and bruised my left thumb. I think the instructions need to say to work in a wide open roomy area and keep fingers away from the moving parts which squeeze down.
