SOURCE: Arrow T-50 stapler

Take out the screw/nut combo @ the end of the gun where you load the staples. The whole rail that holds the staples will then come out and you can then get the little devils of the nested, jammed, rousted up staples out by sliding them out with a screwdriver. Don't jam the screwdriver into your fingers/hand when doing it.

SOURCE: Swingline Stapler Staples Only After You Open It Up....

When you lift up the top of the stapler (as though you are going to put staples in), does the pusher slide freely back and forth? It might be getting stuck at some point and not pushing the staples (either due to a worn pusher spring, or friction). First (after removing the staples) try spraying some light oil on the mechanism and lifting the top part of the stapler up and down a few times and observe how easily it moves back and forth. Also, with the top open try GENTLY sliding back and forth a little - if it slides fine with no sticking, try loading staples and using stapler. If it slides ok, but doesn't quickly return to it's "normal position" when pulled so as to put tension on the spring, rhen the spring may be worn and need replacing.

SOURCE: I am trying to refill

After the tray has slid out so far (an inch?), give it another good tug (maybe a little harder than you think you need to) and you should be able to fully extend the tray.

The case of the stapler is glued together. To open the case requires carefully sawing it along the seams. The paper switch is spring loaded but the spring is built into the switch. It is possible that something is jamming it.

How do I replace the staples in Stanley Bostitch B310HDS? I cannot seem to figure out how to open it.


"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

How to remove staples from bostitch T5 model only to change type of staples


Lift the hinged guard on the front of the stapler and while open use a pencil or similar object to depress the striker (above the staples). This will release the spring catch and the staples will move forward. Use caution and catch the staples as they come out under spring pressure.

Need help to reassemble Swingline Optima desk stapler


You must have purchased the Swingline Stapler that is actually a Paper Weight. Do you have the 747 model, the one the airplane of named after?
Sometime the imbeded PC fails, preventing the robotic controls to release the staple or to reassemble automatically.
Please return for a complete replacement and a free trip to Disey Lane just pay for transportation, tickets, lodging, food, shipping, packaging, and handling. Have a nice day and thanks for flying with us.
