It sounds like you have a light duty stapler and are trying to use heavy duty staples. 1/4" refers to the length of the legs not the thickness of the actual staple. You probably just need light duty staples.

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.

Staple guns can use a variety of staples; the width of the staple is fixed, the lengths vary from 1/4" up (usually in 1/8" increments). You don't need to adjust the staple gun for the different lengths, just be sure the width fits your gun since some manufacturers have used brand-specific staples.
There are also a variety of staple types; there are staples for ceiling tile, electric wire, window screening, etc. My favorite staples for wood have the tips cut on a sharp angle, they penetrate wood well. Some staple types require a particular gun, I have a gun that shoots only round-top staples for small cables like phone & thermostat wire.

The question here is what are standard staples in YOUR opinion? Are they designed to be used with this staple gun. What length are the legs of the staple 1/4" or less.
You cannot just use any staple in these guns They have to be the correct type either stanley or Bosh
Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

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.
