Reassembly of swingline heavy duty stapler model 390NX

Attempting to clear a stuck staple, I found that the front lever that covers the "push down" mechanism wouldn't swing up like it was supposed to according to the 2 page instruction pamphlet. So I partially disassembled the stapler. I cleared the stuck staple but now am having trouble reassembling. What I took apart was the "swing up" front lever, the "push down" mechanism and the big handle. I called the Swingline company. They do not do repairs and there is no repair manual.

You must have purchased the Swingline Stapler that is actually a Paper Weight. Do you have the 747 model, the one the airplane of named after?
Sometime the imbeded PC fails, preventing the robotic controls to release the staple or to reassemble automatically.

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.

How do I open the swingline optima model # 8784x to reload staples?


I couldn't open my Swingline Optima model 8784x either. Their website wasn't helpful except they mention you can change staples "with the push of a button." Button, I thought. What button? In the picture, there's a black button at the back end of the stapler. Mine is missing! The button, if it were there, would press down on a metal tab, releasing the staple slide which pops out the front. Insert staples, push it closed, you're done! I used a letter opener to push down the metal tab.

Trying to load the staples into a model #90010. They're fine except at the very front of the stapler, they wont go all the way down flush with the others and the chamber won't even close.


1. Make sure you have the correct staples for the machine, Swingline Hvy-Duty Staples for 90010 Stapler, 0.625-Inch Leg Length, 2500 per Box (90009)


2. Check the staples to make sure there are no visible jams. Remove some staples from the row if this helps them fit.

3. If you continue to have problems, contact the manufacturer at http://www.acco.com/swingline/, or
Repair Service/Technical Support:
Phone: 800.790.7787

They will replace the stapler if needed.

Instructions on how to load a swingline heavy duty stapler.


You pull up and back on the stapler head. Then pull out the spring that keeps the staples loaded. Be careful as the spring is very strong. Then put in the staples and put the spring back in behind the staples.

How do I open the swingline model 900xd


It took me and my boss wrestling with this mongo stapler for 15 minutes to figure it out! :0)

To open the front end, pull up on the handle while simultaneously pushing down on the small black lever on the front. This takes some firmness and be warned, if it's jammed with staples it's going to take some serious force to get it open - watch your fingers!!! I strongly suggest the minute you get a jam, open up the front and clear it. Don't continue to staple in hopes it will work or clear itself or you will have a build up of jammed staples making it almost impossible to open and clear. Also note that when you open up the front end the staples tend to shoot out so be careful.

To open the back end to load staples, push forward and up.

Hope this is of help :0)

Instructions on unjamming swingline electric stapler model 270; jam is at the front of the stapler; staplers come out either broken, flaten or crooked and does not secure document.


First, are you using the recommended staples for this stapler? Many heavy duty electric staplers don't use "standard" desk staples. Second, try unplugging the stapler, unloading the staples, and if possible, reach a couple of fingers into the stapler and try manually pushing up on the staple head to see if you can get the driver blade to come down. Does it come down smoothly, or does it seem like there is something stuck in there? If you aren't sure about disassembling the unit (my usual method-but I'd recommend having the parts diagram handy), try using a flashlight to look at the underside of the staple head, where the staples come out - can you see anything stuck in there? If so, you might be able to use a small knife blade or small dental pick to get jammed staple pieces out.

Swingline Stapler Staples Only After You Open It Up....


When you lift up the top of the stapler (as though you are going to put staples in), does the pusher slide freely back and forth? It might be getting stuck at some point and not pushing the staples (either due to a worn pusher spring, or friction). First (after removing the staples) try spraying some light oil on the mechanism and lifting the top part of the stapler up and down a few times and observe how easily it moves back and forth. Also, with the top open try GENTLY sliding back and forth a little - if it slides fine with no sticking, try loading staples and using stapler. If it slides ok, but doesn't quickly return to it's "normal position" when pulled so as to put tension on the spring, rhen the spring may be worn and need replacing.
