Arrow HT50iRED

Reliable Hammer Tacker

If it weren't for hammer tackers, the tedious task of applying felt paper and housewrap would be intolerable. As part of Arrow's new RED line, the HT50iRED has a bottom-loading mechanism that the maker says tightly secures the staples and makes jamming less likely than in rear-loading models. The tool's compact size makes it ideal for installing paper-faced insulation and doing other jobs in confined spaces. It can hold two full strips of T-50 staples ranging from 1/4 to 3/8 inch in size.
