Arrow Fastener Celebrates 90th Anniversary

Arrow Fastener Company kicked off its 90th anniversary at the 2019 National Hardware Show with the introduction of several new tools.


Morris Abrams founded the company in 1929. At first he sold staples for staplers currently on the market, but by 1940 he had received his first stapler patent, and by 1943 was assigning his patents to Arrow Fastener, a process he continued into the 1950s as he patented the hammer tacker and the staple gun. One model of his staple gun, the T50, was introduced in the early 1950s and became the company’s most recognized registered trademark.


Today, Arrow Fastener specializes in manual, electric and cordless versions of rivet tools, staplers, glue guns, nail guns, grommets and hammer tackers. Seven out of every 10 hardware staples sold at retail today are made in the United States by Arrow.
