It sounds like you have a light duty stapler and are trying to use heavy duty staples. 1/4" refers to the length of the legs not the thickness of the actual staple. You probably just need light duty staples.

That is a common problem with those guns...have returned quite few of them that did not last more then a few hundred local hardware returned them got credit for them and gave me new ones...they are a poor excuse for a staple gun but there is not much of an alternative to them...

How do I load the stapler?

No you don't. We answer most things here.

If the stapler is like any of these

You push the back in slightly to unlatch it and then drop it down a bit and the staple pusher comes out completely.

I have a Stanley Heavy duty stapler Model# TR250 and for the life of me I cant load the staples. Please help!

Most staplers load from the rear, but not the TR250 Sharpshooter.

With the stapler upside down and the sliding rail out drop a whole strip of staples in the channel upside down (points up) and then push the slider back in making sure it locks.

I can not get the staples to go all the way into plywood

Try using both hands on the stapler. One on the handle with the other forcing down with your palm directly in line with the direction of the exiting staple. Some times this will allow the staple penetrate better. Make sure the stapler is square and firm on the work surface. Good luck!

Size of staple to install roll insulation in wall cavities.

It would seem that 9/16 is a bit long to attach canvas and may even penetrate through to the working surface unless the backer board is much thicker then 9/16.

1/4 or 3/8 may be more suitable.

Good luck

Installing nail brad in a stapler

I have the same problem and the silly thing is I have used it. Ridiculous that you can't find a manual on it. Well, I have solved it!!!!

our problem is we open the stapler and stare straight down into the cavity. But if you angle it, you can see that there are grooves along the side which the head of the brads would hang and slide along.

1. on one side of the stapler it will say "load brad this side"
2. open the chamber and place the stapler on its side with the aforementioned side down
3 place your strand of brads in the appropriate groove and close the chamber
4 start shooting
