I have an arrow staple gun and i can't figure out how to reload it can u help? it's a jt21, I have tried sliding them in but they don't go that far, I got the staples at the store i brought the gun with me, there dosen't seem to be anything jammed in it
All you do is open the end peice and slide the staples in on the two rails, point down. You should be able to see in the end to make sure nothing is blocking the rail with a flashlight. You probably have the wrong size staples. You can only use # 214, 215, 276.

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.
Located on the end opposite of where the staples come out, there is a spring loaded cap. Push it in toward the base of the stapler and slightly down to release the retaining hook. then let the spring release the pressure rod and pull it out. Connedted to the end of the rod you will see a plunger that is shaped like a short run of staples. Make a mental note of how and where this plunger slides into the base of the stapler. Place a run of staples into the stapler in the same manner that the plunger fits then replace the plunger into the same place following the run of staples. Compress the spring into the stapler and attach the hook as it was. Now you are ready to work.
NOTE: If you cannot compress the spring enough into the stapler you have inserted too many staples, just remove some of the run of staples and try again.
I was having the problems everyone listed... with the staples loading & firing... I guess the instructions are lousy .. should be ON THE PACKAGE to make it clear.. but.. on the stapler itself on the bottom.. it explains how to correctly load.. you don't put the staples on the piece that slides out.. you slide it out, load the staples in the open tunnel ..then slide the piece back.. that piece is the spring loader... since i finally figured it out ( by coincidence that I turned it over & noticed some faint words printed) - it works PERFECT every time! great little stapler... please fix your directions... seems to be a common misunderstanding!!!
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:)
Make sure the staples you are using are compatable with your gun they should be type 53 or JT21 staples and they are not longer tham the gun is capable of taking I think the maximum capacity for this gun is 5/16 or 8mm.
Turn the gun upside down and pull back the carriage, the staples are laid in the empty chamber in the gun itself not on the carriage points facing in the direction they fire ie points facing you .
Push back the carriage this should slide over the strip of staples until the carriage clicks shut.
You should now be ready to fire, try and keep pressure down on the gun as the recoil can make the gun bounce and you will leave the staples proud.
Hope this helps.
