Replace spring in Swingline 444 stapler

Need to put the spring back in the stapler. removed a serious jam. It popped out. I was able to open the stapler and locate the flat metal piece that should flap back so I can get to the hook for the spring, but I can't get it to release. Is there another way?

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 Optima 45 Stapler - cannot slide tray back in stapler, no staples jamming


Sometimes the rectangular insert where the staples sit on, gets dislodged. On the underside of channel insert is a spring and when correctly seated is in between the tabs of the bottom piece. If the insert isn't in between the tabs, it sits too high and makes it difficult to open and close the staple tray. The staples will jam.

Swingline optima 40 how do you open and close the stapler?


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.
Difficulty:Easy Instructions

    • 1 Remove the follow block at the back of the stapler by pushing the mechanism in, lifting the block up over the holding hooks and sliding it out from the stapler. The follow block is the spring-loaded mechanism that holds the staples in place within the stapler.
    • 2 Load the heavy-duty staples into the staple tray.
    • 3 Replace the follow block by inserting it back into the stapler and locking it into place over the holding hooks.

There's a rectangular opening at the front end of the stapler. You can insert a rod that fits in the opening, and push the staples back out if they're not hopelessly jammed in-place.

Stapler (swingline 211xx) has jammed. It is electric. When I plug it in it make a very loud noise like it's trying to staple but nothing happens. When i press the release button on the top the stapler tray...


Turn the stapler over, remove the batteries, then remove the black pads and the four screwa under them. Take off the bottom cover and you will see the clear tabs of the cover sticking through the bottom plate. Pust them with a screwdriver toward the center of the stapler while squeezing the cover from the other side. Chances are that you will find the plunger that drives the staples is misaligned. Bend it gently forward or back until it moves without binding. Good Luck!

Swingline Stapler Staples Only After You Open It Up....


When you lift up the top of the stapler (as though you are going to put staples in), does the pusher slide freely back and forth? It might be getting stuck at some point and not pushing the staples (either due to a worn pusher spring, or friction). First (after removing the staples) try spraying some light oil on the mechanism and lifting the top part of the stapler up and down a few times and observe how easily it moves back and forth. Also, with the top open try GENTLY sliding back and forth a little - if it slides fine with no sticking, try loading staples and using stapler. If it slides ok, but doesn't quickly return to it's "normal position" when pulled so as to put tension on the spring, rhen the spring may be worn and need replacing.
