I have a similar issue with my T50m stapler. To remove the staples unscrew the locking nut near where you load the staples and remove the tapppered bolt. The track will lift out and the staples can be easily removed. Why this is happening is unknown to me also. I purchased a new gun.

If removing the rod (that you unhook to load the staples) and shaking or lightly tapping doesn't help, You may need to disassemble it. You can go to this webpage on Arrow's website for the exploded diagram if you don't have it:

It's not the easiest stapler to disassemble and re-assemble, but it can be done.

    what else can go wrong w it if it doesn't seem to be jammed w a staple?

  • dcm0123 Jul 06, 2014

    I found the easiest way to unjam was turn the stapler upside down and strike the plastic against a hard object which will free up the plunger causing it to return. This will allow the plunger to try to clear the staple. It worked for me about 10-15 times then I decided time for a new one. Since this is the second Arrow gun I had problems with, I will be looking at a different brand.

My T50 would fire ONE 1/4" staple correctly and then jam, eating 3 or 4 and after digging those out do it all again. This was one staple eating machine!!.. I disassembled the thing, making some mechanical adjustments which allow only enough room for smooth feeding of ONE staple at a time and now it NEVER misfires or jams. These adjustments will take careful thought and filing of the end of the staple tray nearest the firing pin, along with slight bending of the firing pin to lay flat against the outside head cover. I also filed the outside "tips" of the firing pin to be absolutely flat where it contacts the staple. DO NOT shorten the firing pin if possible. Now I can get even 9/16" staples to go all the way in. :)

To clear a jam in the T50 staple gun, you need to take it apart. Here are the steps. No. 1: Remove the pusher rod assembly. No. 2: Use a screwdriver and pliers to remove the screw and nut. No. 3: The channel assembly can then be removed and you can clear the jammed staple. We have attached the T50 staple gun exploded diagram.

For anyone who needs extra assistance, we would be happy to walk through these steps with you. You can reach us at or call 800-776-2228. -Your Arrow Fastener team

The staples go through the material, but don't fasten or close on the back side

This is not a type of stapler that clinches the legs of the staples. There would have to be a lower jaw to do that. Like a desk top stapler has.

Got a staple jammed can't get out . don't know to take it apart.

This can happen all the time... first remove the slide-in tensioner which pushes against the staples. Remove the single bolt with lock nut which is towards the rear of the stapler. Now you can pivot the staple rail down and out of the gun. Just remove any twisted staples from the rail. Now reassemble the rail by positioning the front of the rail to go into the small slots in the front of the stapler body and re-attach the bolt. You may now reload the staples and tensioner and continue working. Takes just a minute or 2.
