I hae the same problem. I don't know the real names of the parts so I will make up my own and try to describe them. The problem with mine is that the "hammer" (the piece in front that slams down on the staple and shoots it out) is broken. The "hammer" has two notches that the tension spring (actually a metal bar with two tongs not to be confused with the spring the returns the handle to the at rest position) fits into. One of these notches on the hammer is broken. Therefore one side is not attached to the tension spring the causing the other side to slip off and since the hammer is not connect to the tension spring you get no resistance. Unfortunately I could not find anywhere that sells a replacement peice.

I have a stanley heavy duty stapler TC110. When I put my staples in, they don't seem to be catching. There is some black part sticking out of the end where the staples should come out. It looks like...


The staples load on the underside of the stapler.
Step 1 Push down and retract the stapler pushup mechanism.
Step 2 Position the stapler so that the moving hammer handle is down
and the staple exit is up
Step 3 Load the staples into the chamber on the bottom with the points up.
Step 4 Push the pushup mechanism into the locked position until it latches, you will feel the spring resistance as the staples are pushed into place.

How to load staples?


    • 1 Push in the push rod plate on the back of the Arrow T50P and press down to unclip the push rod from the gun. Pull the push rod out of the staple channel and away from the staple gun.
    • 2 Insert a strip of staples into the channel with the tips of the staples pointing toward the bottom of the staple gun.
    • 3 Place the end of the push rod into the staple channel of the gun. The end of the push rod has a small, solid piece of metal that fits into the staple channel.
    • 4 Press the rod all the way into the staple gun until the rod plate engages in the notch at the rear of the gun.

I cannot insert the retainer spring into the stapler 2025, with or without staples. What am I doing wrong? Arrow fastener model T2025. I played with the front piece for different sizes of staples; since...


make sure the rod inside the spring is not bent. the slightest bend can cause the retainer or push up loader to act goofy. Also make sure the u shaped(a square U) that makes contact with the staples isn't warped or out of shape. and if staple gun was ever dropped the whole track it slides down could be pinching down too much creating resistance. if so, pry open gently wherever you see that it might be getting tighter. If a visual inspection is not obvious try slowing sliding the spring loader into staple gun's staple track and once resistance is felt start to gently work open with a pair of needle nose pliers, insert closed the use two hands pull pliers open to spread the track apart. . Or any method you find easier that would create the same effect. be inventive and use commonsense always. before u know it you will be MacGyver. LOL Hope this helps, and good luck.

Stanley sharp shooter tr110 staple gun. will not staple after loading. got ideas?


Are you loading it correctly? It took me awhile to figure it out myself. When you pull the clip out I was convinced you have to load them in there above where that black spring is on the slide lock that you pull out (as they seem to fit there) but no, you do have to turn it upside down to where the place where the staples shoot out is facing you and then load the staples into that space that you now see in front of you by placing the staples in upside down (pointy ends facing you). Then just slide the slide lock back over the staples you just placed in. I had to push down and then up on the clip to lock mine in all the way but some might lock in on their own (not sure). It should work fine from there.

Cannot load staples


At the back of the staple gun is a flat shaped metal piece. It's at the bottom. Push in, pull down, then pull the mechanism out. You'll see it's a metal rod with a spring, that is attached to that flat metal piece. The spring pushes against another flat metal piece, that has a hole in it, and travels back, and forth on the rod.

The flat metal piece that the spring pushes down the rod, pushes against the staples.

Remove this spring mechanism, slide the staples down the rails. The staples will be in the position of an upside down U. Replace the spring mechanism, and lock it back into place. (Push in, pull up)

Should, your question be in reference to the fact that you have staples loaded, but upon pressing the trigger nothing comes out:

In the front of the staple gun, is a flat metal piece that pushes down on the staples. One staple at a time. The flat metal piece is shoved down by spring pressure. The spring pressure is applied to the flat metal piece each time you squeeze the trigger. (Flat metal piece = Hammer)

Sometimes, Two staples try to come out. When they do, this flat metal hammer is stuck up in the gun. To free the flat metal hammer, remove the spring mechanism out of the back of the staple gun. (The spring mechanism discussed above) Remove any staples in the gun.
Try to use a flat blade screwdriver, and see if you can shove the flat metal hammer in the front of the gun -> UP.
(DO NOT have the staple gun pointing at your face! DO NOT squeeze the trigger! DO NOT use excessive force)

If this method is of no avail for you, you have to disassemble the gun, and remove the metal hammer, and stuck staple/s.

The staples are held together with an epoxy. I have used staples that are older than 10 years. The problem is the gun. Check for dirt or a burk in the magazine as well as a bent pusher blade. My gun also had a problem loosing a screw and nut that attached at the blade guide.

Staple gun support


Know the types of staple guns available. They can be manual, electric, battery operated or run by compressed air with an air compressor. Some staple guns have guide wires because they’re used by electricians that can’t pierce wires. Others have long noses to work well in corners and tight spaces. There’s also a reverse built ergonomic staple gun called a "forward action" because the handle and the staple’s exit point are on the same end of the staple gun. Some staple guns can shoot brads instead of staples. Know how each type of staple gun works. This one is so simple because it works just like a stapler. You press and hold the silver latch on the back of the stapler to open the body. Take the tray out and fill it with staples. Then it’s ready to use. Just put the staple ejecting end on your piece to be stapled and squeeze it. There is also the forward action manual gun which is used by pushing the handle down, too. The handle is just located near the staple ejection site. Use an electric staple gun for effortless stapling. There’s no need to squeeze or apply any pressure on these guns. They come with a very short cord so you will always need to have an extension cord with your staple gun. You can also go with a rechargeable battery operated cordless staple gun. They are great but they do run out of steam so for long use one with a cord is better. They’re also pretty easy on the wallet these days, so there’s no reason to go without this in your home tool kit as it’s something that does a lot of jobs. Know the versatility of the staple gun. Whether you have a manual or an electric model, these are some of the most versatile tools out there. You can use them to recover furniture, to build a birdhouse, to staple lattice to a patio, to build lightweight projects like a small knick knack shelf and to do wiring work.
