How to remove jammed staples in staple gun?

I have an Arrow T50 staple gun that I put some staples in. The staples are visible in the side window, but will not come out when I squueze the handle. I also cannot remove them the way they were inserted. Any suggestions?

Take out the small bolt that is secured with a nut at the back of the gun (at the end where you feed the staples) -- then drop the inset. Now you have access to the jammed area. Clear out jammed staples and put the stapler back together. Easiest way is to hold the nut and turn the bolt from the other side.

    I meant to hit YES, but my curser was off a bit and I accidently selected the no... I was ready to throw away my T50 Arrow Fastener, but you saved me. The needle nose plier thing was not helpful. They would not go back far enough.

    Was doing a fixit project on a late Sunday night and was about to go to Lowes and buy a new gun but this got me through the project. It took longer because my very, very old T-50M Gun kept jamming but I was able to get through it; Thank you very much.

    i have removed the pusher rod, but i think something is still jammed inside that i can't see. Any more suggestions?

    Don't be afraid to disassemble by removing this screw and nut. It will give you access to anything jammed in there. Works like a charm.

    Would have worked fine for me but apparently the 2015 staples for my 1966 gun don't fit quite as well (yes, they are the correct size) and keep getting jammed.

Pinch the clip located on the end of the Magazine Unit Pull out the Magazine Unit Remove jammed staples from the channel. You may need to use long-nosed pliers . Make certain that you are using correct size staples. Close Magazine Unit.

Craftsman 68514


The replacement pack for this gun say the staples are compatible with "Craftsman 68514 and 68517; Arrow Brand T50 Staplers T50 and T55; and Stanley/Bostitch TR110 and BT110 staple guns", so I assume they are also backwards compatible. That's just an assumption though.

The info on the gun says it will shoot many different staples, but it will only take 3/8 staples and I need to use 1/2 staples to do the job.


The T50P stapler uses T50 staples of various lengths, including 3/8, 7/16, and 1/2. Is it possible that the 1/2 inch staples you are trying to use are not T50? All T50 staples are the same width and should fit your stapler. There are several other widths of staples that are not T50, although T50 is the most common.

Staples are stuck inside the stapler and will not come out


Typically you do not open these up.
Makes it difficult to remove stuck or wrong staples.
I have had good luck removing the staple ram rod and rapping firmly on the **** of the stapler against a wooden table. The idea is jolting the stuck staples into reverse out the way they went in. Tedious process but usually works. Removing the jammed staples in the nose at the striker plate requires using needle nose pliers and a sharp awl or small screw driver used on very small screws.
My T50 Arrow stapler is over 20 years old.
Still works great. Sometimes I slide in the wrong size staples by mistake. The process above usually works.
Good luck!

My T50M Staple strips break up in the gun and jam after 4-5 staples. This happens with old staples (10+ years) and with new staples that were purchased two days ago. Out of frustration I purchased a new...


The staples are held together with an epoxy. I have used staples that are older than 10 years. The problem is the gun. Check for dirt or a burk in the magazine as well as a bent pusher blade. My gun also had a problem loosing a screw and nut that attached at the blade guide.

The door at the back of the staple gun won't close


You have too many staples in the gun. Chances are it was not shooting staples so you put more in. (Only holds 1 strip as if new from box) Check for a jam. Sometimes this keeps more staples from advancing. Please rate

My arrow fastener model t-50m is jammed how do I remove the few


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.

Arrow T-50 stapler


Take out the screw/nut combo @ the end of the gun where you load the staples. The whole rail that holds the staples will then come out and you can then get the little devils of the nested, jammed, rousted up staples out by sliding them out with a screwdriver. Don't jam the screwdriver into your fingers/hand when doing it.
