    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.)

Hi, I can't load my powershot pro electric stapler/nailer with staples. It fires, but staples do not advance forward. Any help?


Remove all staples and inspect for a rouge staple that may be jamming the staples to advance. Unplug first.

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!

When I load the nails, they do not sly to the front of the gun therefore it does not work. Powershot pro 9100 staples/nail gun, eaglalex@aol.com


Could be couple problems, the magazine, nail carrier is slightly bent or wrong nails is there enough spring pressure on the pusher? and maybe some foreign object in the magazine. Take a look and let me know if you need more assistance

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.
