Can't load staples

I just bought TRE 550. I would think it should be easy, but i can't load staples!. Maybe i'm an idiot but if i load staples into channel , they won't go in and it won't close back up. If i remove staples it closes. i am positive i have the right staples -Arrow t-50

    I can not load the stapler either

    Pull out the bottom and load staples with point facing towards you and into the slot, not on the bar that you just pulled out like the manual staplers

You must use the Arrow T50 staples. I tried to no avail using the T20 size staples and was ready to pull my hair out! Once I used the T50 staples, it was a breeze. I have had no issues loading staples since then.

Fire the stapler with the load chamber open and down, see if anything falls out. Point it in different positions and fire it, just make sure it cannot fire anything at you.
