Question about Oster Golden A5 2-Speed Universal Motor Clipper 78005-140
I'm having a problem getting the blades to lay down flat on the clippers. It's happening with all the blades and makes a terrible noise. I can push them down with my finger and the noise goes away, but as soon as I let go, the clattering comes back.Help!

With the hinge of the clipper facing you:
Make sure hinge is open, if it is not, prize it open with a flat head screwdriver.
Slide the blade on with the blade siz/number faceing you.
If this fails, try again, but push the latch in as you snap them shut.
If this fails, you may need repair!

John! No Problem!
First put the bigger of the two blades witht the size/number facing down, put the cutter on top. (with the side with the flat side of the teeth facing down) Then put the tongue guide inside the tension spring, make sure the tension spring rail is on the tension rail and place them on top of the cutter. To see which bits these are go to: http://www.sheareaseltd.com/clipper-blade-sharpening/clipper-blades-the-parts
This picture whows the front and back, it differs slightly from your blade, but its same meat different gravy!
Hold all this together with your finger and thumb, flip it over and scre the whole lot together!
