The HT55 caught my eye with the simple design and functional look. I hate staplers because they are inherently temperamental and flimsily constructed. Usually too many weak parts or complicated workings. This one has none of that, it is easy to breakdown and work on. I needed a hammer-stapler to tack plastic (4 mil.) and roofing paper. Since I had been through a variety of hammer-staplers, mechanical staplers and electric staplers I expected problems from the onset. Not surprised, it jammed after a few uses, but due to its simple design I was able to easily break it down and fix the problem. In my case the slot where the plunger slides through became tight (probably bent from a drop). I used a flat screwdriver to lightly pry the slot open at the end that it seemed to be binding at. I then added a drop of 3-in-1 oil and took it back to stapling. It is working fine, but as with most staplers I expect to fix a jam or repeat this process in the future. I would recommend this to anyone that intends to use 1/4" staples on light material like tar-paper, plastic or materials like that.

Purchased two HT55's to install house wrap. Using genuine Arrow T50, 5/16" staples. We made it 20 feet before both units were completely jammed in the closed position. There is no documentation on how to clear the jam, nor is the youtube video useful. I ended up removing both bolts on the back, and pulling the release pin to let the magazine up enough to pry it back into the open position. I then had to use two electronics screwdrivers to pry the jammed staple out. Every 10-20 feet we either had a jam or the staple pin got pushed back in the full open position, and we'd need a screwdriver to push it back. Terrible design! Waste more time fixing it then actually working. I'm going back to a conventional staple gun.

                  Arrow slap staplers are legit. I've never had a jamb. Light enough to use all day. Wish they held a few more staples but reloads couldn't be easier. I keep a spare stapler in the truck at all times.

                              Over two decades of roofing I have used many brands of hammer tackers, that's what we have called them and Arrow products have held their own to my standards. I expect my tools to take a beating (falling off roofs, ladders, and tool bag to the ground) and still last and I have used this one tacker for 2 years. That is a good product to me and I will continue using them till something comes by that is better

                                                      This is the first time I have used a hammer stapler and it is fantastic! Past projects were done with the T 50 hand held and this time it picked one of these up and what a difference. The ease of use and time saver was just great. Can't say enough about the good this product results you get from this tool.

                                                          I bought the HT55 and to replace my Arrow Staple Gun that I had forever -- the thing was indestructible -- so I stepped up to a Hammer Tacker. I loved it the first 4 times I used it then the Jams started. You can waste some serious time with Jams and this thing. A major let down.

Arrow is a known company and I own and still use Arrow staplers - manual and electric. This product is very reliable, takes a little bit of abuse but still gets the job done. Even with a few stumbles and falls, it remains a sturdy tool. Highly recommended!

There are some obvious design flaws that have clearly not been addressed. I have watched the videos on how to un-jam the stapler and the cartridge will not eject from the stapler. I regret my decision of purchasing this piece of equipment.

I was stapling 6mm plastic on 2 x 4's. I was able to staple approximately 30 staples when the magazine jammed up inside the gray metal top. I can not get the magazine unjammed. Very disappointed as it performed very poorly and broke upon the first use. Will not purchase this brand again.

I used it to attach Tyvek home wrap, then had to go around and hammer in all the staples. When using this product to install insulation, I have staples sticking out and several smashed fingers from trying to get a decent angle and flush-set staple. Right now my stapler is stuck in the dispense position, and although I have watched the how-to-clear-a-jam video, I cannot get the head to release to get to the jam.

It jammed after less than 20 staples. After clearing the jam, the black striker broke. Very frustrating!

Wanted something light, dependable and good at setting the staples. Arrow - that is a name brand in this market. The first one I purchased, did not set the staples flush like you would expect and it jammed often and broke before burning through 1000 staples. Returned and got another unit. Same results. This thing can NOT take working for a living. Don't bother with this unit!! I have more money and time in buying and returning the units and the half used boxes of staples then they are worth! Ended up going back to my old reliable unit the "TANK" my Duro-Fast hammer tacker. It is a tank in that it is big for this application but it work like a tank.
