Answer: 
Your question isn't clear as to whether it is the carpet or the wood stair tread that has come loose. If it is the carpet, the size of the staple depends on the thickness of the carpet. However, the type of staple doesn't matter if you are using the Powershot staple and nail gun. Despite the brand's name, it doesn't have the poser to drive any size staple through the carpet and into the wood. Instead, Read More

Use a one inch finishing nail. Drive it half way in and then nail it over and into the carpet fibers. If a long length of carpet is coming up you would be better off replacing the tackless strip is that is what was originally used. Read Less

Answer: 
If you are referring to carpet on the riser, I would use the longer 1/2 inch staples for greater security, although the 3/8 would likely work in oak. If the carpet is on the tread of the step, then the 1/2 inch should provide greater security.

Answer: 
Hi there:
We are guessing that 3/8" leg staples Arrow T50 #506 should work. But depending on how thick the carpet, carpet backing, and carpet padding is, you may have to use a longer staple like 1/2" leg length Arrow T50 #508 staples or 9/16” Arrow #509 T50 staples. Spread the pile with your fingers until you see the jute backing, fire a staple there, then push the pile back, and it should cover the

The stapler should fire the staple into oak, but if the staple is too long the legs will fold up rather than penetrate into the wood.
If you need more advice, contact out customer service team for further information. They can be reached via email at customercare@arrowfastener.com or by calling 800-776-2228. Tell them how thick the carpet is for the best information. -Liz and The Arrow team

The stapler should fire the staple into oak, but if the staple is too long the legs will fold up rather than to into the wood. If the carpet folds under itself at the top of the stairs, then there is something called a Z-bar holding it in place. It is a piece of metal that has hooks in it and folds back over itself. You may be able to open it up some, push the end of the carpet back in it and close it with a hammer. If the little claws in it are damaged, go to Home Depot and get another piece. Someone in the flooring department will be able to show you how it works. Best Wishes. Read Less

On the opposite end from the staple exhaust, push the chrome clip up, in and down. It will slide all the way out. Load the staples on the track and put the spring clip back in.

I'm not sure you understand how this stapler works?
It does not open like a desk stapler.. It has a slid out , spring loader piece that holds the staples... It will also use brads..... I works pretty good once you get used to it. It's sort of back-asswards compared to the conventional stapler...

Answer: 
747, this hand stapler isn't the type of tool you want to drive nails, even the smallest ones. It's grossly under-powered and you will probably have to finish driving the nails with a hammer. Better off to start with a hammer in the first place. If you have a lot of nails to drive then I suggest getting a pneumatic brad gun. A little more costly but less problems in the long run.

T50 5 in. Staple and Nail Gun is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 267.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst tool in my shop. Received this as a Christmas gift. The first time I used this was last week. Kept shooting blanks, then jammed, spent 20 mins trying to get the stapler out. Still continued to shoot blanks. Averaged 1 stapler for 6-7 times i squeezed the trigger. My wife tried to use it the next day and didn't work at all. This is definitely the worst tool in my tool filled garage. On my way to buy a Ryobi pneumatic stapler. Btw, I never write reviews, ever! That's how bad this tool is and how frustrating it was to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have this one I've had this one for about 2 years, used it maybe 3-4 times since I've had it. Went to use it the other day and it stopped for some reason. I've tried taking it apart to repair and it fell apart even more one me. Unfortunately the warranty is no good any more so all I can say is I bought a piece of junk.
Date published: 2016-11-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very efficient and effective We needed a stapler to attach indoor/outdoor carpet to our garage stairway. This gun worked very well to attach deep staples into the wood and secure the carpet. It is designed to work with minimum amount of pressure, as the force to deliver the staple is over the front of the gun, not the rear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Very nice and easy to ise I was worried about it hurting my hand but no pain at all and I use it well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tackle more projects with less effort I have used the standard stapler for 30 years with no complaints, but after using this one I wish I'd had this one years ago. After adjusting to the slight difference in where pressure is applied and feel, it was a joy to use. My old stapler left my hand aching after a large project and took most of my hand strength to staple. I may have weaker than usual hands. I limited my staple gun projects due to the exertion required to use the old staple gun, and the effect that had on the precision of my staple placement. This new one is a dream. I don't jerk back after triggering the staple, and after many repetitions my hand doesn't shake straining to depress the trigger.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product. I purchased it many years ago for a project that I never did. I tried to use ... Terrible product. I purchased it many years ago for a project that I never did. I tried to use it tonight to staple plastic sheeting to a couple walls of a dog kennel for wind protection and it broke after one and a half sticks of staples. Not boxes..... sticks. I bought this because I loved the idea of the design but obviously there must be a reason this one is the only one built that way. It doesn't work. Unfortunately I can't even get my money back on this piece of junk because I bought it so long ago. Makes a good weight to hold the plastic down in the wind though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Power Shot Stapler Bought this staple gun for a very simple job to carry out!! Putting plastic on a backyard chicken coop to help keep wind and rain out for the fall and ease into winter but after using this Staple Gun for a hour it kept jamming up and now it is broken and will not fire any staples!! Total waste of money!! STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS!!! I ended up borrowing one of my friends Staple Guns which just happened to be a DEWALT STAPLE GUN... I was pleasantly surprised that the DEWALT WORKED AWESOME AMD DIDNT MESS UP AT ALL!!! Bottom line is I bought the POWERSHOT for its versatility with doing staples and Brads but I quickly found out that this STAPLE GUN IS TOTAL JUNK!!! SAVE YOURSELF A HEADACHE AND JUST BUY THE DEWALT STAPLE GUN!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke within one year I bought this last fall (2015) when my T50 stapler finally broke after many years of use. I used the new stapler to staple plastic over windows for the winter and it worked great. Much less effort required to staple than the traditional T50 stapler. I didn't need to use it until this fall (2016) when I was stapling insulation in the walls and ceiling which worked great. It started jamming using #504 staples then eventually quit working. Of course, I don't have the receipt so I can't replace it under the warranty.
