If it's a manual staple gun there should be a slide the ejects out of the back of it. Usually you squeeze the sides of a little metal "cap" on the bottom rear and it will pop out. Then simply slide a sleeve of staples in with the points downs.

What type of staple gun do you have? i can give you a little more specific info.

The staples do not go far enough into the sdlide chamber to allow the hammer to strike the staple. The staples do not show in the openning when it is loaded. What am I doing wrong? I have a model D51420 18...

I believe on that model you have to release the magazine latch, pull the lower half all the way back, load the staples into the upper half of the magazine, then close and latch the lower half. The staple pusher and spring are located in the lower half so the staples need to be in front of that for them to be properly pushed into the nose. Also make sure you are running the correct staple. There are 1/4" and 3/16" narrow crown staples out there and they don't interchange. The staples should slide freely in the magazine when they are loaded.

How do i open the stanley tr110 staple gun to load the staples

Angelbabie...Like most things, it's pretty easy if you know how.

1.Release the loading latch located on the back end of the staple gun by pinching it with your thumb in a downward motion. This will release the catch and allow you to pull the loading slide out.

2.Hold the gun upside down (so the staple don't fall out) and place a stick of staples in the bottom of the channel which will be exposed once you pull back the loading slide.

3.Push the slide back in and make sure the latch is engaged. All good to go!

Happy stapling.

I cannot get the staples in the staple gun. How do I load them properly? I have empty chamber and found the release. When I try to load them on the slide bar they don't want to advance to load.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. This is a very crude users manual but see figure 5 on page one of the manual:!PAGETYPE?sq=tre550&sc=2&sf=101113&sg=1&st=56327&documentid=172691&action=view

You must click on the Format PDF link to open the next page then choose save or open the document.

Everythng points to loading the staples via the slot vs on the slide bar.
Hopefully you using the correct staples. If your still having problems just respond here and I will help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a Pro Sharp Shooter TR 200. WHILE I HAD TROUBLE loading the staples in, I think I have them in properly, the staple cartridge door is closed but the staples aren't coming out. What am I doing...

Make sure that you are using staples made for this tool. Remove the staples and look for a jammed staple at the drive head which will block further staple movement. Make sure there is spring tension at the rear of the staple row when the slide is closed. Hope this helps!

Staple gun jammed after falling into water puddle

Remove the magazine and shake out all excess water from the tool. WD-40 is merely for Water Displacement, hence the name WD-40. You need to lubricate with shop grade oil. Inspect the driver head to make sure the surface is flat and free of dings or nicks. In order for your tool to work properly it needs to be able to feed without interruption, and the driver head needs to be able to move back to **** and forward to fire without hinderance. After insuring that all parts are in proper working order, reassemble, load, and fire. This should fix your problem 90% of the time. If not, then check the magazine spring to make sure it is delivering a strong drive to the loaded staples or nails, if not, you need to either use more of either to put more pressure on the spring, or you need to replace the spring all together.

My jt21m stappler gun is not dispencing staples, i have loaded it the only way i can see how to, helppppp

Make sure you are using the correct staples for your staple gun. Same brand, proper size.

Next look carefully where the staple should come out as often there will be part of a staple caught up in that area which will have to be pulled out with a pair of pliers.

How do I load this Stanley Staple Shooter Light Duty?

This doesn't load like normal staple guns. Go to the end of the stapler and pull out the locking device with the spring on it. Then turn the staple gun upside down so you're looking at the bottom of the gun. See, there is now a little channel exposed. Drop the staples in this little channel with the points of the staples pointing towards you. Keep the staple gun upside down and reinsert the locking device which will compress the staples. PRESTO! Ready to use.
