Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dale5858 Well balanced easy to use tool.
Installing insulation in a new home (walls and ceiling). Weight and grip of the stapler is excellent; significantly reduced the fatigue factor in swinging the unit for extended periods of time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rose60 Easy to use.
This product is so easy to use. Just load, aim and hammer. It keeps you from smashing your fingers and you can use I hand to hammer and no nails or pins to hold. It goes much faster than the regular hammer and pins and your project is finished much quicker allowing you to move on to other plans. Really works great when building rabbits hutches with the wire and such. I would recommend this product to anyone. Great for men and women alike.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ronny60 This tool is a timesaver
I lined up the task of applying heavy gauge plastic in my three season porch to combat the draft I experienced last year. The wall I wanted to cover was not only large but was uneven. I wanted to get the job done quickly and easily. I purchased the ARROW HTX50 tackhammer and did the job very easily and was fun to use. THANKS !

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Badnella Best heavy duty stapler
I found that the striking mechanism placed towards the out side of the head allows me to not only strike more easily on uneven surfaces but allows me to strike at an angle. Most staplers require you to strike what you are nailing too with the stapler flatter to the surface to fully sink the staple. With this stapler you can strike with a more natural swing and still achieve full sinking of the staple

I used this product when building a roof for my side porch. It worked wonders and made this job go so much faster. No missed punches and no staple jams. I would buy this product again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GoldenRocket Speeds up wrapping!!
I am simply a DIYer and as such I have been rebuilding/refurbishing an old home (1850 circa). So I had this wrap job coming up and after having seen a friend use a hammer tacker for wrap he had installed, there was no way I was going to be without one. Bought this one based entirely on research (reviews/costing/availability). As I had never used a hammer tacker before I learned that there was a learning curve. In another review, it was stated that it did not matter if the strike was square on or not - well I have found the same however, ONLY if tacking into standard wood and NOT so if tacking into OSB. In fact, I tacked into 7/16 inch OSB sheathing with 3/8 inch staples and there was a fair number of bent staples from not making full penetration. Yes the tacks are genuine arrow staples. In another review it was stated how the 1/2 inch staples had jammed in the slide tray while loading but once in, stapled good - what I have found is that a pack of "old" 1/2 inch staples jammed while new ones did not - compared the two both marked as 508 but yet the older ones were at least 1/16 inch longer and with a prominent chisel tip - they ones jammed up entirely, so I had to dismantle the tacker by removing the load tray in order to get the staples out. All-in-all I am entirely satisfied with this purchase, just should have been able to accommodate the old staples and maybe a bit more striking power for OSB penetration.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Laura This product has a great safety feature
We have used a couple different hammer tackers and this style Arrow hammer tacker has been one of the best. The handle offers an inset that keeps the hand away from the item that is being stapled so your fingers are less likely to get smashed. I would recommend this Arrow hammer tacker if using on a daily basis or large projects.
