Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
I have a vintage Bostitch B5 stapler at work and can't figure out how to open it. The front plat says to "push then pull to load" but it has me stumped. Maybe it's jammed? Maybe I'm just daft? Does anyone have experience with these old timers?

I have the same problem and have found no answers from Stanley Bostitch customer service. They redirect to a telephone number that does not answer.
Solution: Don't buy Stanley Bostitch.

You should not need any tools to lift the guard/nose piece. The T5 nose piece cleary has engraved on it "Pull Up To Insert Staples". To remove old staples, use a pencil or similar rod to depress the hammer/striker above the staples while the nose is open.

SOURCE: How do I replace the
"The staples load from the rear of the stapler. At the back end of the is a piece of black plastic that extends beyond the end of the stapler. This device holds the staples inside the stapler. To open the area where the staples are placed, push this extended button and lift up on it. The spring device that holds the staples inside the stapler will then slide out. Place a new strip of staples inside the stapler on top of the two metal guide rails. Then insert the spring device to lock the staples in place. The stapler is now loaded and ready to work. " hope this helps you out
