How do you load the staples in because it don't open all the way

Asked by: Peanut
Hello, there. The PowerShot Forward Action Staple Gun & Nailer loads the same way that our T50 staple gun does, which is shown in this video: First, remove the pusher rod from the staple gun. Next, insert the strip of staples into the tool with the staple legs facing down and out of the tool. Lastly, insert the pusher rod back into the tool, clicking it into place. If you need further assistance, give us a call at 800-776-2228, and we will walk through the process with you.

replacement parts for Powershot 5700 stapler?

I know it's not expensive, but he one I have has worked for years and the piece that drives the staple broke at the round "weld" so the spring can't lift it any more. For screws easily out to take apart and I could replace this part - seems a waste to buy a new staplegun.

will this go into tin or metal

will this go into tin or metal
Asked by: jt
Hello, there, the PowerShot Forward Action Staple Gun and Nailer will only go into very thin tin or metal. Corner bead, for example, would need a pneumatic tool like Arrow's PT50 ( to penetrate. If you have any more questions, please contact us at or by calling 800-776-2228.

The top part of carpeted wooden stairs has come loose. Which staple, if any, would work to hold the carpet to the oak stairs for the T50 stapler?

Asked by: Quilty
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 staple. 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 or by calling 800-776-2228. Tell them how thick the carpet is for the best information. -Liz and The Arrow team

do you ship to Australia?

Asked by: fred
Hello, Fred. We are currently in the process of setting up an ecommerce store for Australia. Until that time, you can find Arrow staple guns at your local Bunnings Warehouse, although availability of certain products does vary by store. We recommend the heavy duty T50 or T50 RED staple guns since we no longer offer the Powershot 5700. The T50 and T50 RED were manufactured to handle the same projects as the Powershot 5700. If you have any further questions about location or availability, contact Thank you for reaching out! –Your Arrow Fastener team

T50 5 in. Staple and Nail Gun is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 281.
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.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use Stapler Produces Great Results I own an older model T-75 Arrow Stapler, for which it is becoming increasingly hard to find staples for purchase. I decided to purchase this new PowerShot 5700, and am glad I did. It is easy to sue, and being able to "lean"into the stapler instead of having to squeeze the handle like on the old model makes it easy to drive staples without the resulting hand-aches of the older model. I recommend this stapler to anyone who has a need for a relatively inexpensive tool that does the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use and very effective I have owned the 5700 for a number of years, but only use it about ten times a year. I have found it to be easy to use accurately, with minimal fatigue, and with very effective and consistent staple placement. it is my favorite staple gun. But, alas, my 5700 has broken. The blade that contacts the staple has broken. The blade is a small part that is easy to replace, but I cannot find replacement parts. Does arrow offer replacement parts for the Powershot 5700?
