Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wallsrus Did the Job
I used the Tac Mate to reupholster a couple of kitchen stools. The wood was a very hard plywood. My older Swingline heavy duty stapler couldn't do the job. The staples were all bending into an "M" shape. After reading the reviews, I decided to give this stapler a shot. I used 1/4 inch staples and to my surprise they were able to penetrate the wood. I did tap the staples in a little bit but overall it did a good job. It was also very ease to use compared to my Swingline. It took very little pressure to shoot the staple.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by John Misfires and poor stapling
Bought this to re-upholster cockpit bolsters for the boat. Basically asking it to staple through a layer of marine vinyl and a thin piece of plastic backing. Misfired constantly (9 of every 10). After changing out staples multiple times, it finally started shooting a few, but they would only get half-way in. Finished them with a hammer (which is a great look for white vinyl). Exchanging it today so I can finish the job.

After a cartridge of staples get half used, it misfires constantly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bigfoot Not up to reviews
Bought this because of the ratings, and In my case, it failed miserably. Only fired a staple about half the time, and when it did they didn't get full penetration. I would not advise anyone to buy this

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PZCurrie Very easy to use.
I really enjoyed using this stapler because it was very easy to operate. It was easy to load and it never jammed or anything else. I used it to install pieces of screen for our back porch and it made the job very easy and enjoyable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Boyd One of the best staple guns on the market.
Just recieved the Tackmate from Arrow and tried it out. Putting it through it's paces, this gun never failed to do the job with ease. Easy to load, never dry-fired, is small to fit in tight places, comfortable to hold and drives every staple perfectly. I will definitely recommend this gun to my friends. Been using arrow staple guns for over 40 years and think this one works as good as the ones from the old days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fiftiesman Great for DIY projects.
This stapler is a great all around stapler. It is not for all heavy duty work or all light duty work. It is just right for a bit of both that the normal average home owner encounters on a daily basis. It is easy to load and is light weight enough to use at length without getting tired.
