Innovative Design Of The New FA50elite Stapler Makes DIY Home Projects Easier, Faster

Innovative Design Of The New FA50elite Stapler Makes DIY Home Projects Easier, 
SADDLE BROOK, N.J., Nov. 8, 2012 /CNW/ -  Arrow Fastener Company's new 
FA50elite™ Forward Action Heavy Duty stapler, available exclusively at 
Canadian Tire locations, offers a comfortable ergonomic grip design 
specifically geared to the home project enthusiast that helps make everyday 
household tasks and craft projects simpler and faster. 
Versatility is the key benefit of the new FA50elite, the homeowner's ultimate 
tool, which was crafted with input from do-it-yourselfers (DIYers). It is easy 
to hold, easy to use, and the forward action technology makes it very precise. 
It can be used to recover furniture, staple lattice to a patio, build 
lightweight projects or carry out everyday home repairs and gardening 
projects, as well as complete craft and hobby projects. 
"DIY customers want tools that are reliable and simple to use so that they can 
get their projects done quickly," said Bill Newman, vice president, Arrow 
Fastener Company. 
"Here's a great device that takes an already effective, hardworking design, 
and rethinks it to expressly fit the do-it-yourselfer's needs.  It's that 
simple.  The new design is clean and modern, in a sleek gray color, and the 
tool works as good as it looks." 
What makes the product unique is that it is easy to hold and easy to use but 
delivers full-size Arrow(®) product performance. The easy-to-grip design 
makes it simple to press it with one hand: put the staples in and press.  The 
forward action stapler – so named because the handle and the staple's exit 
point are on the same end of the stapler – allows for more precise control.  
Ergonomic and precise, the FA50elite is the practical, easy-to-use choice for 
DIY projects. It also is compact for easy storage. 
"The handle in many competitors' staplers can be hard to compress and can make 
your hand tired after extended use.  Also, if you have to push really hard you 
can lose control of the stapler and may not be able to place the staple as 
precisely as you would like," said Newman. 
Some consumers complain, too, that other companies' models often make it 
difficult to precisely place staples. The FA50elite tool addresses this using 
patented forward action technology; it is easy to fire and allows the user to 
place his body weight and leverage over the point of impact. It fires T50(® 
)staples up to 1/2" (12mm). 
Arrow's popular T50 Elite™ manual staple gun also is available at Canadian 
Tire. The T50 Elite staple gun is one of the first manual tackers on the 
market capable of firing up to a 1" (25mm) brad nail with versatility that 
includes the ability to fire six sizes of T50 staples. It features technology 
that enables the user to set a staple or nail right on virtually any surface, 
and it's ideal for woodworking and insulation. 
Professionals and DIYers alike appreciate the versatility of the T50 Elite's 
integrated wire guide that safely aids in the installation of low voltage. The 
T50 Elite staple gun also features a high and low power switch that allows 
users to adjust when working with hard or soft surfaces. Professionals like 
the quick load magazine that allows them to efficiently re-load when they're 
in the middle of a job.  A jam resistant mechanism means less downtime and an 
ergonomic soft rubber grip delivers the highest standard of comfort.
