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

How do I load the stapler?


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

If the stapler is like any of these

http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abostitch%20staple%20gun

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

My Senco SFN1 finish nailer will not shoot a nail. When the trigger is pulled air comes out but no nail is shot. Thanks,Steve L


Not sure about Senco but most have latch you can open to expose firing mechanism. Nail sometimes gets jammed and will not allow driver to fire or if not nail push driver ****** all the way back into gun then see if gun will fire.

The gun will fire staples, nails do not set.


Shoots staples fine but brads jam or bend. Check that the part called "guide bar", #35 on the parts diagram isn't getting stuck in the channel of part #30.

The guide bar retracts into the channel when driving a staple and springs out of the channel to guide brads.

The guide bar can get stuck in the channel if it's bent or gummed up. (Bent is likely the result of driving a brad into an obstruction.)

The business end should look like this:

Brad nails not in all the way


There are no adjustments on any electric stapler / brad nailer that I've heard of , only the pnumatics. The electric staplers/brad nailers only work well in softer woods

Cant find replacement brads for swingline


the problem was not with a stapler it was with an electric brad nail gun made by swingline , after researching this, my swingline (printed right on the gun) turned into a "powerfast electric nailgun model 32003" which will take arrow replacement 1" brads .

Inserting brads into my Stanley TR250 Staple Gun


I bought one of these guns today and I had the same problem and it took me about 2 hours to figure it out as the instructions were very poor. Here how to load the brad nails:-

(a) Pull the slider bar all the way out
(b) Place the brad nail stick on the left side, IN FRONT OF the slider, NOT in the narrow gap in front of the two arrows where it says "LOAD BRADS"
(c) The nail heads should be facing the handle of the gun
(d) Close the slider and lock it
(e) Try it out. I tried nailing hardboard onto chipboard. The lever at low power only put the nail in about 30%. On Hi power it went in about 80%.

Good Luck

Tr250 does not drive brad nails all the way down.


Jason,

I think this is typical of these staplers/nailers. I bought a lighter model Stanley the first time and had this problem. I took it back and exchanged it for the heaviest Stanley they had at Home Depot and had the same effect. It drove the stapler a little deeper but not all the way.

I did find that if I put all the down pressure on the stapler right on the edge where the staple comes out and then pull the trigger it would drive the staple almost all the way in. I think that there is a recoil effect (like with a gun) when you pull the trigger and the staple enters the wood. Try this. it will help.


Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks for using FixYa
