    Can't get staples to load

  • Anonymous Nov 23, 2008

    I have a Powershot model 8000 stapler and also can't load the staples. I can pull the track back, but the 0.5" Powershot staples won't fit in the chamber. They are slightly too big. If I jam them in the spring doesn't have enough force to advance the staples forward.

You don't put them on the tray, you lay them in the "trough".  The tray comes out from the back.

Loading staples

Powershot Pro (Model 8000) Loading staples is pretty much what you would guess,
EXCEPT that releasing the catch takes a very strong pull, or it won't budge at all. Grasp the black plastic catch at the rear of the stapler base, pull very hard (probably 5lbs or more) and the catch will move about 1/4" away from the stapler ("down" if you think of the stapler in its usual orientation.) You can then slide the catch and the spring mechanism "backwards" leaving room to insert staples or brads. (Note, "T-50" staples and brads should fit. If loading brads, they go along the side of the magazine which is closest to the "staples remaining" window.)

No instructions came with the stapler and the . I can't get it open to install staples! I need this now. You start a project and can't get what you need! I was expecting more from a product...

Open the PowerShot staple gun staple chamber. This is found on the front of the staple gun. There is a small metal area on the bottom. Pull down on this and the interior of the staple chamber is revealed.
  • Remove any existing staples that may be in the chamber. These can be pried out with your fingernail, or you can turn the staple gun upside down and gently shake the staples loose.
  • Slide a new row of approved staples into the PowerShot staple gun. These need to be slid in from the base of the staple gun (where you pulled the cover of the chamber off).
  • Close the cover to the PowerShot staple gun's staple chamber and you are ready to use your staple gun on the next household project.

    Don't know how to load staples in my powershot pro

    Usually a black tab toward the back of the staple gun.
    Push in, pull up and pull out.
    Push rod, spring and assembly should slide out easily.
    You can then reload as needed.

    Push in, pull up and when the push rod bottoms out push down.
    This usually locks the tab back in place. Do this a few times and you will get the feeling pretty quick.

    Good luck!

    I have never used my Cobra 8000 but need to use it immediately to post signs in my neighborhood re a dog I found. I opened the box, and there were no instructions. I have the gun and some staples. I can't...

    The bottom portion of the stapler (the opposite side of where the staples discharge) should squeeze together and pull out, load staples tip up and reinsert the follower until it clicks.  Put on sign post and squeeze the handle.
    Hope this helps

    Got it loaded now it won't shoot

    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.
