Question about Swingline ® LightTouch Heavy-Duty Stapler, 120 Sheet Capacity, Black/Gray
I cannot unhinge the end where staples are to be inserted, nor unhinge at the front where the arrows indicate to open and to close.

You pull up and back on the stapler head. Then pull out the spring that keeps the staples loaded. Be careful as the spring is very strong. Then put in the staples and put the spring back in behind the staples.

SOURCE: We have a Swingline 690
I had the same problem with my 690. This is what worked for me.. I simply pulled out the staples from the cartridge a little further than the suggested tear-off point, and the machine was able to start working. Hope this helps!

Swingline heavy duty staplers provide the power to staple up to 120 pages of 20-lb. paper easily and consistently. The all-metal construction of these staplers makes them an indispensible office tool. However, the way to load staples into a Swingline heavy duty stapler differs from the method for loading most other manual staplers and can cause a little confusion.
