Is it possible to go through a strip of staples with jamming?

If you use T50 staples in this gun it should go through a lot of racks of staples without jamming. We have 2 of these and they rarely jam. Yours might be defective.

Can I use this to install carpet on stairs

Asked by Alex February 13, 2020

It should work, I did not use it to install carpet, I used it to hold paper to a 2 X 4 sheet of plywood. I assume you would need the longest staples you could find, depending on the thickness of the carpet. I would also check in the carpet installation area at Home Depot, they may have special carpet installation tools, also ask the employees in the carpet area.

stapler easy to use for my foot stool
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Arrow JT27 was the perfect tool to attach the fabric to my small foot stool I have refinished. I used JT21 ¼ staples. Because the fabric is extremely delicate and did not want the fabric ruined. The stapler was easy to use and the ¼ nail I choose was perfect size and easy to use. I highly recommend The Arrow JT27 stapler.

Good tools for any DIY products at home
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] About the tools today and start using it right away I had to restore my 1920 vintage chair. With the new velvet fabric. I used this tool to glue everything together.
Had a chance to recover two bar stools with fabric left over from new curtains and the T-50 made the project look professional.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Easy to use and allowed me to use leftover drapery scraps to make the bar stools match.
