I attached it to my Arrow T-50PBN stapler, but what now? How and what do I use it on? The T-50WA is easy. Attach and staple wire/cable to a wall without puncturing it. This one is not so easy. On the side it says "BE SURE TO REMOVE ALL STAPLES/BRADS FROM TOOL BEFORE USING THIS ATTACHMENT" So, how's it going to work empty? I tried going to the Arrow web site for instructions but they had nothing! I hope to get a clue soon. Well I do have one for sure; don't buy it if you don't need it. Accessories are great if you know how/what to use it on.

Hi Maria, I'm sorry you are not having luck with your JT27 stapler. Unfortunately you did not purchase the correct staples for this tool. The JT27 Stapler uses the JT21 staples in a green box. The staples come in 3 different sizes (1/4", 5/16", 3/8"). You can purchase these staples online or at your local Home Depot or Lowe's Store.
As for opening the tool - please see the attached picture for assistance.
Located on the end opposite of where the staples come out, there is a spring loaded cap. Push it in toward the base of the stapler and slightly down to release the retaining hook. then let the spring release the pressure rod and pull it out. Connedted to the end of the rod you will see a plunger that is shaped like a short run of staples. Make a mental note of how and where this plunger slides into the base of the stapler. Place a run of staples into the stapler in the same manner that the plunger fits then replace the plunger into the same place following the run of staples. Compress the spring into the stapler and attach the hook as it was. Now you are ready to work.
NOTE: If you cannot compress the spring enough into the stapler you have inserted too many staples, just remove some of the run of staples and try again.
The terminals on the battery or on the stapler must be damaged (bent or corroded). It's probably the stapler if the battery charges fine. Does it do the same thing with another battery, or just one? Assuming it's the stapler, and you don't want to mess around with the terminals you could tape a spacer on the stapler to keep the battery 1/4 inch out. You would probably have to tape the battery in place though. If the problem is corroded terminals, I have found that a little wire brush attachment in a Dremel works great. Not a brush like a disc, but a brush that looks like the kind used for paint stenciling.
No attachment needed.The nails are inserted just like the staples are. You can only use the nails that are made for it of course. If you look at the front where the staples come out,there should be a little picture of a nail on one side.That is the side the nails go in, heads towards the stapler, just like the staples. The nails will only fit and function from one side of the unit.
The person that asked this is probably long gone, but in case anyone else comes across this... I had the exact same problem when I dropped this same stapler today and the spring came out. After examining it for a bit, I realized where the spring had to go and fixed it. Open the stapler the same way you would as if you were replacing the staples and look at the top piece, towards the back. There will be an elongated black hook here to attach one end of the spring. The trick is where you route the spring after that... look towards the front end of the same top piece, and you'll see 2 holes in the metal. You need to push the spring up through the first hole, then pull it back down through the second hole (you may want to use a straightened paper clip to snag the spring so you can pull it through that second one), and only then do you attach the other end of the spring to the hook in the sliding metal piece that advances the staples in the staple holder. And that's it!
