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.

Where do I get staples for a B&D stapler? #9700


There are several brands of staples that will fit your stapler and the price will vary according to the depth of staple you are looking to buy. Arrow brand staples are the most common. All the ones I saw that fit the 9700 are Wide Crown Swingline Heavy Duty

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.

Hello. I have a model #1000 Swingline Power Gun. It says,the extra heavy duty staple gun on the handle. I would like to purchase a box of 1/4" and 3/8" staples. The gun is so old I don't know the new...


Went to the local hardware and read the labels. The store brand fit and works as good as the original staples. The 1000 has outlasted several of the new fashion staplers. And the local hardware store is an Ace Hardware.

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.
