Question about Stanley Office Equipment & Supplies
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!

SOURCE: how do I make the Optima 20 electic stapler model 48208 work after putting in the staples. I put the paper in as usual and it does not work. I have put the staples in correctly as I normally do, but
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!).

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.
