Questions & Answers


Is it strong enough to go through plastic lattice? I want to attach screen.

Asked by aj August 18, 2020

yes it will

Does this come with any staples?

Asked by JD May 6, 2020

No, you have to buy those separately.

Can this go though wood

Asked by RaRa February 23, 2019

Yes, but was not great. Probably need a stronger stapler.

Can i use this for cable instalation

Asked by Tond May 19, 2016

Don't think so if you are talking about round cable. Largest staple is 5/16

Stapler has a safety that needs to be pressed, which makes it slow and awkward to use. How can I get around this problem? Instructions did not say.

Asked by lou December 9, 2015

I had no issue with this. Where is the safety?

This product is incredible! And a lifesaver for my hands!
Customer review from logo
I am re-upholstering my diningroom chairs. I don't have a lot of arm/hand strength so using the old standard staple gun and even a Stanley electric staple gun is difficult. So, I went shopping. I found this ergonomically built staple gun. The design allows you to pull the trigger and put pressure in the right spot that needs stapling. I can't believe how much easier this is to use. I was able to cover 2 cushions in less than half the time than it took me to get one completed. My hands didn't hurt after using it. I'm so pleased with my project. I like this gun so much I bought one yesterday for my best friend for Christmas! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Acorn Woodpecker deterrent
Customer review from logo
We needed to dangle some reflective and glittery ribbon on the exterior of the home with silver shiny orbs on the end to try and discourage the acorn woodpeckers from drilling holes through the siding of our home. They had cause damage that we repaired, and were told they do not like glittering objects. We obtained some thin furring strips and attached the ribbons and dangles from the strips which were attached to the house. The stapler was essential in making attachments that would last for a good long period of time. Tool is easy to load and lightweight to handle, but powerful enough to staple into wood. Very satisfied. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Upholstery savior
Customer review from logo
The Arrow Trutac Stapler is the product I purchased mostly for the size. The two broken staple guns at home were big and bulky and I struggled using them. This stapler fit readily in my hand and was easy to apply pressure to. I was able to proceed with my upholstery job without straining myself. The stapler is very easy to fill too. I felt confident for once using this type of stapler. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Good for my kitchen table and chair reupholstery
Customer review from logo
TruTac Light Duty Forward Action Stapler - TT21 along with 5/16 staples (8mm) Tool by far exceeded my expectations. I used it to cover the top of our once shiny top oak kitchen table, that lost its shine with over 20yrs of use. I wasn't sure how good the stapler would do on penetrating the wood, but it did. The staples are holding in place very sturdy. I also have to reupholster the chairs as well and that will be an easy task, with this easy to use and lightweight hand stapler. I am older and don't have the strength I used to have to carry or use heavy tools, this was definitely a game changer, light and easy to fill staples and use. The whole new set up was done very quickly and it looks beautiful. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great for smaller, weaker or aging hands
Customer review from logo
I absolutely love this extremely easy-to-use stapler. I have been a hard-working DIY woman all of my life. I am very creative and love to fix build and improve things. When it comes to hand tools and gloves my small hands have been challenged to find a nice fit. I have never been able to squeeze the big heavy duty staplers therefore never able to use them. I now have aged and overworked hands with weak thumbs. I just bought the stapler to repair some patio chairs. I needed Staples to go through the THICK vinyl and into a thin piece of plywood. Each and every staple went in nicely with a gentle lean onto the handle. I give this stapler a fantastic recommendation for its incredible ease of use, but I cannot give information on its longevity. It is plastic and it will be very busy in my world, I'll keep you posted.. :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
