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
Peter

The staples go through the material, but don't fasten or close on the back side


This is not a type of stapler that clinches the legs of the staples. There would have to be a lower jaw to do that. Like a desk top stapler has.

How do you load nails in stanley tr250 staple and nail gun??


The magazine on the TR250 has a recess on one side as well as a relief at the top where the driver pushes them through the opening. Load the brads/nails on that side of the magazine and it should operate properly. AS A REMINDER: ALWAYS REMOVE NAILS/STAPLES/BRADS WHEN NOT IN USE AS THIS WILL WEAKEN THE SPRING AND CAUSE FEED PROBLEMS IN THE FUTURE.

My stanley model tr 250 seems to be jammed up and won't load staples


Generic comment.

There should be a pin or a screw (probably with a locking nut) on the business end of this machine. Find it, remove it and the track should pull down allowing you to clear the jam.

I hope this helps

I have a tr250 nobody can show the loading part for the stapler.i need parts (no tension on staples)no spring or part that push against staple need part number & price. thank you Doug


I suggest you visit your local hardware store (Ace/Westlake) or you can try EBay, I've found numerous parts at great prices on there and they will usually designate what they will work with. Hope this helps. In the future, remove the material from your gun while keeping it stored, as this will weaken your magazine feed spring.

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
