First slide off the rubber grip This will expose a pin that you will need to remove. Remove the two bolts on top of the hammer with a 10mm wrench. These bolts hold the striker plate guide. Place the hammer in a vice to lightly compress the hammer head. Remove the allen head bolt located on the end of the head. This bolt holds the striker slid that strikes the staple. Remove the pin that you see that was under the rubber grip. Just tap with a punch and then you should be able to remove it with a small set of pliers. Now slid the enter assembly back just enough so that the jammed striker slid will come in contact with the striker guide face. Turn the hammer over and strike the top of the hammer on a piece of wood. This should free the slide and jammed staple. The staple and slide will come out. Take a file and deburr the slid and add a dab of grease to it. To reassemble, Attach the slide guide first, but leave it loose. The rest is reverse order. Hope this helps.

My BHT150 could never install more than 6 staples without jamming, now its working perfectly and a real workhorse.

The grease solution above attacks the basic problem but there is a more long lasting solution:

The pusher blade (slid?) is angled about 2.25 degrees in order to travel through the staple delivery slot as it drives the staple. It needs just a bit more angle. I set mine to just over 4 degrees with a .005" shim and the unit now is frictionless and has driven many a staple without a jam.

I really like the unit's robust construction, affordable price and compact size so found it worth spending some extra time on.

In the prior author's description of opening the unit, one is directed to remove the rubber grip in order to remove the pivot pin, this can be avoided by just pushing on the rubber "dimple" opposite the steel dome head of the piviot pin and then folowing the rest of the instructions.

    I have followed the instructions on these two posts and have the unit disassembled but can't seem to unjam the gun. Is there some trick that I am overlooking or do I just need to keep banging it on something until it unsticks?

    Tim, Try removing the hex head screw if you can reach it. This screw holds the staple pusher blade kto the upper body of the stapler. Once removed the two halves should seperate and you can then more easily see the problem and fix it. If this does not help the just remove the black components from the orange handle and use a flat blade to pry the two black parts apart. Probably a mangled staple jamming things.

There could be a piece of a broken staple jammed in the stapling mechanism. I checked mine and there are two screws on the bottom that can be removed to expose the interior. The broken staple jam occurs often with mechanical staplers so the electrics probably have similar failures.

I have a jammed staple in a bostitch staple gun ....how do I remove it?


Depending on the model that you have, for the manual guns, you can engage the driver 1/2 way and use a precision screwdriver to free the errant staple. However, if it's the electric model, you'll need to unplug the tool, remove the magazine mounting screws, and clear all material from the feed tube, this should also remove the lodged staple as well. If not, rap it against a wooden surface to free it then reassemble. I suggest that you unload your tool between uses to keep the rigidity of the spring up to OEM specifications. A weak spring is usually the cause of these jams.

Bostitch nail gun number SB-21n1 is jammed and need manual to know how to unjam it or a solution online. Was using it in the staple mode and it jammed after about 5 staples. Was using bostitch staples.


Hello. Begin by disconnecting the air hose. That way you can not get hurt while removing the jam. Get a pair of needle nosed pliers and remove each of the jammed staples. They will pull out I assure you. Then Use a little WD-40 or compressor oil to lubricate the working mechanism at the firing head. IF you must loosen up the mechanism to remove all of the staple parts be sure to use the correct size allen wrench. I am providing link to a free manual for your gun in case you don't have one: http://bostitch.com/catalog_images/web_pdf/107674.pdf
