I have a similar staple gun and I figured out I was loading it wrong. If you are loading it where the spring is, like I did, it won't work. there should be another area close to that spring opening that you put the new staples in.

Cant open jt27 staple gun to load staples


Hi Maria, I'm sorry you are not having luck with your JT27 stapler. Unfortunately you did not purchase the correct staples for this tool. The JT27 Stapler uses the JT21 staples in a green box. The staples come in 3 different sizes (1/4", 5/16", 3/8"). You can purchase these staples online or at your local Home Depot or Lowe's Store.

As for opening the tool - please see the attached picture for assistance.

How do you load staples in ET501? I pinch the back of the loader together but it won't pull out.


Try pinching it and pushing it down at the same time. If that doesn't work then there is likely a jam.

What part do I need to remove to make a bostich MIIIFS floor stapler to shoot 2 inch staples


You shouldn't have to do anything to the MIIIFS flooring stapler to shoot 2" staples. It is designed to shoot 1 1/2" to 2" staples right out of the box. If your stapler won't feed 2" staples, check the magazine all the way up to the power head for any foreign material that may hold up your staples.

Just purchased t27 arrow staple gun but can't load staples. I have removed spring loader from rear and unsuccessfully trying to load staples from rear. Wrong method? Wrong size staples?


That stapler takes a jt21 staple. some fill from the bottom when the plunger is in the drawn back position and some fill from the rear with plunger removed. If the plunger is attached, then it fills from the bottom. Hope this helps:)

My gun will not shoot staples after loaded I thin there is a part missing


Staple gun are simple device and the 'shooting' mechanism is just a sring loaded bar that hammers the staple out: the problem is usually a jam/stuck staple where the staple in the orifice where the staple comes out. Just use a small screwdriver and /or plier to remove the stuck staple which could be jammed against the hammer bar. You may need to force the hammer bar backwards with the help of your small flat head screwdriver.

Hope it helps!

How do you adjust the staple size to load 1/2" or 1/4" staples?


Staple guns can use a variety of staples; the width of the staple is fixed, the lengths vary from 1/4" up (usually in 1/8" increments). You don't need to adjust the staple gun for the different lengths, just be sure the width fits your gun since some manufacturers have used brand-specific staples.

There are also a variety of staple types; there are staples for ceiling tile, electric wire, window screening, etc. My favorite staples for wood have the tips cut on a sharp angle, they penetrate wood well. Some staple types require a particular gun, I have a gun that shoots only round-top staples for small cables like phone & thermostat wire.

Problem loading gun..Where do we put in the staples and change the dial to accomodate it? fred


The staples should load in through the end of the hammer stapler. The end is spring loaded to push the staples forward, so push the end - usually a crome square - into the handle end then move that part up approximately 1/4 inch and pull back. The spring mechanism should slide out so you can add new staples. These staplers take a specific size of staple and a certain number to allow you to put the spring mechanism back into the stapler. If you do not know the correct size for your stapler someone at your local hardware store can help you find the correct size and they will probably even show you how to load it. Good luck!
