SOURCE: Staple Gun Troubleshooting

Most of the staple gun models lack an "anvil" — the metal plate with curved slots that office staplers use to bend the legs of the staple inwards and flattens them against the paper. Staples set with a staple gun retain their straight legs, and are held in place only by static friction of the legs against the compressed surrounding material, much like common nails. Indeed, some staple gun models can handle brads and nails as well as staples. Some staple guns also use divergent point staples where the legs twist as the staple drives into the surface providing superior holding power.

No instructions came with the stapler and the . I can't get it open to install staples! I need this now. You start a project and can't get what you need! I was expecting more from a product...


Open the PowerShot staple gun staple chamber. This is found on the front of the staple gun. There is a small metal area on the bottom. Pull down on this and the interior of the staple chamber is revealed.
  • Remove any existing staples that may be in the chamber. These can be pried out with your fingernail, or you can turn the staple gun upside down and gently shake the staples loose.
  • Slide a new row of approved staples into the PowerShot staple gun. These need to be slid in from the base of the staple gun (where you pulled the cover of the chamber off).
  • Close the cover to the PowerShot staple gun's staple chamber and you are ready to use your staple gun on the next household project.

    Staples are stuck inside the stapler and will not come out


    Typically you do not open these up.
    Makes it difficult to remove stuck or wrong staples.
    I have had good luck removing the staple ram rod and rapping firmly on the **** of the stapler against a wooden table. The idea is jolting the stuck staples into reverse out the way they went in. Tedious process but usually works. Removing the jammed staples in the nose at the striker plate requires using needle nose pliers and a sharp awl or small screw driver used on very small screws.
    My T50 Arrow stapler is over 20 years old.
    Still works great. Sometimes I slide in the wrong size staples by mistake. The process above usually works.
    Good luck!

    My gun will not shoot staples after loaded I thin there is a part missing


    Staple gun are simple device and the 'shooting' mechanism is just a sring loaded bar that hammers the staple out: the problem is usually a jam/stuck staple where the staple in the orifice where the staple comes out. Just use a small screwdriver and /or plier to remove the stuck staple which could be jammed against the hammer bar. You may need to force the hammer bar backwards with the help of your small flat head screwdriver.

    Hope it helps!

    How do you adjust the staple size to load 1/2" or 1/4" staples?


    Staple guns can use a variety of staples; the width of the staple is fixed, the lengths vary from 1/4" up (usually in 1/8" increments). You don't need to adjust the staple gun for the different lengths, just be sure the width fits your gun since some manufacturers have used brand-specific staples.

    There are also a variety of staple types; there are staples for ceiling tile, electric wire, window screening, etc. My favorite staples for wood have the tips cut on a sharp angle, they penetrate wood well. Some staple types require a particular gun, I have a gun that shoots only round-top staples for small cables like phone & thermostat wire.

    How to remove jammed staples in staple gun?


    Take out the small bolt that is secured with a nut at the back of the gun (at the end where you feed the staples) -- then drop the inset. Now you have access to the jammed area. Clear out jammed staples and put the stapler back together. Easiest way is to hold the nut and turn the bolt from the other side.

    Piece of staple stuck in the trigger section of arrow t-50p


    First, remove the magazine pusher / spring and any staples loaded in the magazine.  Then try firing the gun to clear the staple.  Use a small jeweler's screwdriver and small needle nose pliers to get the staple out.  Reload and test.       These are relatively inexpensive staple guns.  If the problem persists it might be less trouble to replace the gun.     Best of luck and I hope this solution works for you.   Michael Mittelsdorf

    Know the types of staple guns available. They can be manual, electric, battery operated or run by compressed air with an air compressor. Some staple guns have guide wires because they’re used by electricians that can’t pierce wires. Others have long noses to work well in corners and tight spaces. There’s also a reverse built ergonomic staple gun called a "forward action" because the handle and the staple’s exit point are on the same end of the staple gun. Some staple guns can shoot brads instead of staples. Know how each type of staple gun works. This one is so simple because it works just like a stapler. You press and hold the silver latch on the back of the stapler to open the body. Take the tray out and fill it with staples. Then it’s ready to use. Just put the staple ejecting end on your piece to be stapled and squeeze it. There is also the forward action manual gun which is used by pushing the handle down, too. The handle is just located near the staple ejection site. Use an electric staple gun for effortless stapling. There’s no need to squeeze or apply any pressure on these guns. They come with a very short cord so you will always need to have an extension cord with your staple gun. You can also go with a rechargeable battery operated cordless staple gun. They are great but they do run out of steam so for long use one with a cord is better. They’re also pretty easy on the wallet these days, so there’s no reason to go without this in your home tool kit as it’s something that does a lot of jobs. Know the versatility of the staple gun. Whether you have a manual or an electric model, these are some of the most versatile tools out there. You can use them to recover furniture, to build a birdhouse, to staple lattice to a patio, to build lightweight projects like a small knick knack shelf and to do wiring work.
