SOURCE: Stanley TR70 Manual Stapler won't accept Arrow 1/4" staples

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.

SOURCE: can't load 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.

SOURCE: how do you adjust the staple size to load 1/2

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.

SOURCE: I'm stumped -- I just bought a Stanley Heavy Duty

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

SOURCE: I have a very old Bostitch staple gun Model T5.

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.

I have a stanley heavy duty stapler TC110. When I put my staples in, they don't seem to be catching. There is some black part sticking out of the end where the staples should come out. It looks like...


The staples load on the underside of the stapler.
Step 1 Push down and retract the stapler pushup mechanism.
Step 2 Position the stapler so that the moving hammer handle is down
and the staple exit is up
Step 3 Load the staples into the chamber on the bottom with the points up.
Step 4 Push the pushup mechanism into the locked position until it latches, you will feel the spring resistance as the staples are pushed into place.

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.

I am trying to staple screen on 1.5 inch pine frame with 1/2 staples, but I have to set them with a hammer. Am I expecting to much or is there a way to adjest it to run them in the who way /


I have found that staples will set well only if I use the palm of my hand to hold the front of the stapler down tight against the material as I operate the handle.with my other hand. Without holding it down this way the stapler tends to recoil a bit and the staples don't set all of the way. If that doesn't solve it for you, you could try using 3/8 staples, since the screen material is of negligible thickness. Good luck, Al K

The info on the gun says it will shoot many different staples, but it will only take 3/8 staples and I need to use 1/2 staples to do the job.


The T50P stapler uses T50 staples of various lengths, including 3/8, 7/16, and 1/2. Is it possible that the 1/2 inch staples you are trying to use are not T50? All T50 staples are the same width and should fit your stapler. There are several other widths of staples that are not T50, although T50 is the most common.

My Swingline Optima Power Ease will not staple, nor can I open it to try to find out why. There are staples in there, but it feels like there are no springs


This happened to me as well. I am not sure what causes this but heres what I did to fix it.

Just grab the top part of the stapler ( where it says Swingline) and pull up, like you are trying to seperate the top and bottom. You will hear a click and your stapler should work fine.
