Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CarpetSwimmer Works alright
Bought it on sale and it works alright however it has jammed a couple of times on me and had to use screw driver and needle nose pliers to remove the jammed staples.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SukiSue T-25 stapler jams way too often
We are a garage door and opener installation company since 1991. Arrow staplers have always been our tool of choice, until the last few years. Our installers refuse to put them in their trucks anymore, too frustrating to deal with the jamming all the time and we use only #256 staples. And I am frustrated with the quantity of T-25s I've bought over the years, thinking that they were being abused, I've since realized, that's not the case, and the guns are the problem, or the staples. Please, go back to the drawing board. I have a box full of "dead" T-25s.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bobw This is a silly product that causes a lot of irritation to its users.
I purchased it about 18 months and it has never been useful to me. It constantly jams. The local dealer is aware of the situation and has tried to provide assistance. The irritating fact is that it is still on the store shelves.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Quality Issue with the new gun
I had used these guns for years in my low voltage installs. Older models that had no cushioning material on the handle worked great for years on end.
This new model jams, and from reading others reviews I am not alone with the same problem.
This is a quality issue I am sure, or someone "improved" this model.
On another hand not to bash the unions much but with many manufacturers that are unionized quality somehow declines over time magically. Just saying. Maybe some new quality control procedures are in order at the Arrow company.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Michael Crushes cable - that's all you need to know
This is my third staple gun specifically for stapling low voltage cables to wood surfaces. They all have their shortcomings, and this one is no different. I expected the problems I experienced with this staple gun, but figured it would be worth a try in case I was wrong. I wasn't wrong. The design of the gun allows staples to be driven in too far, allowing the staples to apply pressure to the cables - the cables can't slide freely through the staple. This can easily cause problems with data transmissions and should be avoided.
I don't know how this product remains on the market, or who keeps buying it, when its design virtually guarantees violation of standard installation practices. It's already packed up and ready to be returned.
That said, I don't think it's any worse than other products designed/sold for the same purpose, but it's certainly no better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by shaler78 New T-25 guns constantly jamb.
I am also a garage door installer trying to use these newer staplers for run garage door opener wiring. Well the one I've had for more than twenty years has worked without a hitch or any pampering the whole life of the tool. I have been having all kinds of jambing issues with the newer ones I've purchased over the past five years. I can forget about using these to staple wire to treated lumber or plaster ceilings They constantly jamb and have to be taken apart to clear the jamb. I've wasted more time and staples with the new ones, so much so, that I've given up on them (more than six in the past five years) and either use my old one or resort to hand stapling which I hate for obvious reasons. Quality is less than poor!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rafy light weight and very easy to operate.
Excellent in small places. Lightness allowed movement of items working on.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike23 Frustrating
My company installs a lot of low voltage wiring (i.e. CAT5e/6, RG6, 16/2 and 16/4 speaker, etc). I have several of the T25 staplers. They constantly jam. We have to take them apart and clear the jam. This wastes a lot of time for the team and is very frustrating. There has to be a quality problem here. I only use the Arrow staples (usually 9/16"). I also have a T59...no better, jams a lot.
