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.

Recommend the 5/8 staple which will penetrate the carpet and the wood enough to keep it from coming loose in the future.

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.

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.

Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 220 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Failed very quickly Bought one Power Shot stapler as a cash purchase and it failed after using it to install a couple standard strips of 1/4 inch recommended staples. Returned and purchased another and it also failed after only a few strips of staples. Returned the second one and purchased another brand. Unfortunate. Had a previous Power Shot that lasted years, with no issues, which I loaned out and it never got returned. Strongly recommend running a few strips of staples through one if bought as these two failed rather quickly. July 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not Good It worked great for a while but then then started shooting blanks and getting jammed. I took it apart several times and would get the same result. I was in the middle of a big project so went out and bought another one (I know, shame on me). Same problems. It seemed like a good product for the price - but it is not. This is my first review on HD and it's because I got what I paid for - and I don't want you to make the same mistake. July 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by One small flaw, still the best stapler to use Much easier to use than the old-school T50 stapler, with the force inline with the staple. The long reset, however, is a minor drawback. At the risk of sounding too trump-ian, I'd say I have normal sized hands and this thing stretches my handspan to the max in order to reset for the next staple. August 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible tool Does not hold up at all. I had one that continuously jammed and misfired. Threw it out and borrowed my fathers. His did the same thing. Not worth the money. July 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Just plain aggravating This stapler jams on every load. I can do about 10 minutes of actual work, then spend 20-30 un-jamming it. Horrible. August 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Broke out of the package I got it to drive 5 staples and then it acted like it would not catch to drive another staple. I took it back to try another stapler. July 15, 2016
