I'm an electrician and have been pulling wire for 25+ years. I own the $40.00 Arrow cable tacker Arrow Wire and Cable Staple Gun no. T72 which does a great job on jacketed runs of thermostat, bell and other similar low-voltage wire. I've used that staple gun on holiday lighting projects. It does NOT do a good job in that application: the gun is difficult to line up properly so that the staples do not pierce the conductors of the light strand. (It will, on occasion, sever a wire because the gun fires so hard).

I'm signing off on 5 stars: it's cost/benefit score is near a 100 for me (I would have docked half a star if possible for fastener cost - they're $.04 each, in a box of 100 locally).

This tool is a light duty, dedicated tool that makes putting up the holiday lights a quick and painless project. The gun itself is mostly plastic (if you hang lights when or where it's COLD, the plastic is a godsend compared to the all metal heavy duty staplers). The design gives you a clear view of the head and guide, and allows you to staple comfortably with the gun reversed in hand (picture grabbing it backwards - can be helpful when you're turning corners and in other tight places). The staples feed reasonably (experienced 6 - 10 misfires while shooting 250+ staples - usually the last one or two staples in a strip) and will not pull free without deliberate tension.

This is my first year with it, but I expect I'll be a happy camper next year. I'll clean it and store it with the lights. I'm already visualizing an expanded display simply because it's SO good at what it does. Just don't try to make it do anything else.

I bought this cable tacker thinking it would be helpful for tacking up Christmas decorations. It works well when you use it correctly. I really like the plastic cable protectors; these kept me from punching a hole in the extension cord I was trying to tack down. I also really like the little metal guide; this enabled me to align the gun and see exactly where the staple would go. Initially I was really struggling, because the instructions are incomplete if one's a novice with a staple gun. Instructions only tell how to remove the staple pusher--nothing about inserting the staples properly. This might seem obvious, but the staples have these plastic protectors covering the points; without seeing any points on the staples I wasn't really sure how they should be inserted... For other novices like me, put the staple strip in with the loop side up and the plastic side (point-side) down. I also struggled with getting the first couple of staples to go all the way in. I stopped and viewed this YouTube video ([...]) where this wonderful contractor explained that for weaklings like his wife (and me), it helps to use two hands--put pressure on the tip of the tacker with the heel of one hand while squeezing the handle of the tacker with the other. This worked like a charm!! I will add a caution for others like me who really don't know what they're doing...this is a real staple gun! It takes a lot of pressure (for a woman my size, at least) and two hands to use it, and the staples come out with a lot of force! Don't leave this thing laying around where a kid can pick it up and try it out on his little brother! ; ) Merry Christmas!

Based the the last review, I almost skipped this staple gun, but I felt the Arrow Fastener T59 Wiring Tacker for $40 was just too much, so I gave this one a try. Turns out it did the job, and worked reasonably well. I used it to secure several hundred feet of Cat 6 R45 cable runs in my house. Now not ever staple went it, depending on the type of wood, but for the most part I am glad I bought this cable tracker.

This stapler solved my problem of tacking patio decorative light strings to an older roof edge. My roof for the garden shed was not very sturdy as it was built in 1900, and thus I couldn't use nails or even screws. This stapler did the job nicely with limited damage to the shed, and no damage to the light string as is found by using a normal stapler. I plan to use it for Christmas lights too. I found the staples are sold in my local well known hardware store, but not the stapler. I rated it less than perfect as it is kind of tricky to load and handle when stapling. Holding it up and steady enough, straight enough... makes all the difference in how well the staple holds to the wood. It's tough to depress the handle and this is what makes it difficult to set the staple in straight. Maybe I'm not as "buff" as I thought!

This thing is listed as an Arrow brand, so I really expected more. However, no where on it does it list a brand. Of course I was using this to tack down cables, so the short staples should have worked well. I was stapling into soft pine, so I expected no problem. WRONG! Maybe one in five staples seated properly, and the rest I had to set with a hammer. And that was the ones that weren't mangled by the gun. So at least half were wasted when I had to pull them out (with fingers only, no tool needed) and start again. If you need this maybe once a year, I guess it's OK for the money, but buy WAY more staples than you think that you'll need. If you want it for work use, forget it. It's not worth the aggrevation.
