Question about Stanley Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

My stapler sounds like it is stapling but it isn't.

When I trigger the stapler with the papers, it makes the sounds as if it were stapling them but nothing else happens. I tried taking the cartridge out and putting it in, as well as changing the staple cartridge (it was had only half a sheet left), but it still does not work.

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!

SOURCE: I can't seem to reload

With the stapler sitting a solid surface, turn it 180 degrees so it is pointed away from you, and you are looking at the back. Press down on the plastic extension that you see (about mid-height on the stapler). This releases the staple-holding compartment (it shoots out the front of the stapler). Reload it with standard staples, push the compartment back in place until you hear a click. Voila!

Unplug it, take it apart and examine the switch actuator and switch to see why they don't trigger the stapler. There's a good chance you'll find the actuator is broken or jammed by a foreign object, or the switch is worn out. Metal-filled epoxy works well for repairing ABS plastic parts.
Another possibility is a broken power cord. You can test the electrical parts for continuity with an ohmmeter (unplugged, of course!).

You didn't list the make and model of your stapler but if it's not driving the staples flush with the surface here are some possible causes:
1. The wood; If you are driving long staples into hardwood or knotty lumber you may have to use shorter staples to see how they set.
2. Stapler settings; Turning the air pressure up isn't the answer to driving staples deeper, it is only harder on the stapler. Most staplers work in the 90 to 120 psi range. The lower pressure you use the longer your stapler will last. Check/adjust the depth of drive control on the stapler to determine where the top of the staple is driven to.
3. Broke stapler; If it's not driving them to the proper depth but the level they are driven to is consistant, you may have a damaged piston o-ring/seal or the end of the driver is broken off. You'll have to go into the gun or take it to a service center to check these things.

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.

The case of the stapler is glued together. To open the case requires carefully sawing it along the seams. The paper switch is spring loaded but the spring is built into the switch. It is possible that something is jamming it.

Nothing happens when you load paper to staple. It is a swingline electric stapler model 270


assuming it is plugged into a good power source and turned on (no offense intended, just getting the obvious out of the way - and I've fallen victim to the obvious myself before), look inside where you put the paper - is there a trigger mechanism? Most electric staplers have them (the paper hits the trigger and the stapler fires), and some allow you to set the sensitivity of the trigger. If yours allows you to adjust the sensitivity, try adjusting it. If it's not adjustable, the trigger probably needs to be replaced (under heavy use, they may need to be replaced every year or so).

Stapler works intermittantly


If not the power source or cord, the next activation point would be the trigger. Does the stapler make any sort of noise when the trigger is depressed? What type and model stapler is it?
