SOURCE: stanley sharp shooter tr110 staple

Are you loading it correctly? It took me awhile to figure it out myself. When you pull the clip out I was convinced you have to load them in there above where that black spring is on the slide lock that you pull out (as they seem to fit there) but no, you do have to turn it upside down to where the place where the staples shoot out is facing you and then load the staples into that space that you now see in front of you by placing the staples in upside down (pointy ends facing you). Then just slide the slide lock back over the staples you just placed in. I had to push down and then up on the clip to lock mine in all the way but some might lock in on their own (not sure). It should work fine from there.

SOURCE: refilling the staple gun

The staples do not go on the bar you pull back but directly into the bottom once you have pulled the bar back. I was trying to put the staples on the bar at the back and push them into the stapler.

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.

My gun fires four or five staples all a once--is there an adjustment. with shooting so many staples at once then they do not go in all the way


  • This may or may not help, but I have one that was doing the same (as many as five at one trigger pull). I gave it the little WD40 and it still did the same. Then, I thought maybe it was the effect of not being used for a while. I proceeded to pull the trigger several hundred times (you can do this without staples loaded) and now, mine works fine. Seems to have helped.

My stanley tre500 shoots like a semi automatic weapon. Is it adjustable? Thanks Nancy


Hi Nancy,

Do you mean it rapid fires, or do you mean fires the staples to deep?
If it fires too deep, the adjustment for that is on the back of the gun. The + and - give more/less depth. Adjust it towards the - direction to get the brad/staple to no penetrate as far.

Thanks,

Handie Andie

The staples will not come out of the device. there is the pressure to fire it out but the staples will not come out


You likely have a staple stuck in the chamber . Try to pick it out with a dental pick or similar tool. This happens a lot with stalpers there not that reliable the hammer one are the best but not good for fine work the sears disgin is good but the things are made of plastic and its cheap plastic and the gun falls apart and breaks before you get half through your second box of staples Im a commerical painter and use staple guns for a liveing you have a pretty good gun but they all clog at some time try to clean the staple out

When pressing the trigger to fire a staple, all I get is an air leak from the area of the trigger.


They all leak a little on firing. Is it a big blast of air or just a hiss? All guns have a 'safety' device that keeps them from firing unless you follow a set pattern. You must push the gun down where you intend to put the staple which releases the safety before you pulll the trigger. You must then release the trigger move the stapler off the piece push it back down again before you can fire another staple. You can get (free) frrom the manufacture a rapid fire shoe and trigger that allows you to hold down the trigger and bounce the stapler along your work shooting merrily away.
