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.

    I have a Stanley bostitch Model B310HDS. When i started working here in this office, i searched for a heavy duty stapler. I found it, and it was being used as a door stop. I tried to use it and it was jammed. no one could get it to work properly. I guess that is why it became a door stop. I tried and couldnt fix it either. I agree with your post. 'DONT BUY THESE STAPLERS"!!!

    I also have a Stanley Bostitch Model B310HDS. It has never worked since I started at this job. It is jammed and the rod won't go in all the way and I can't get the staples that are in there to come out. What a waste of a very expensive stapler. I also think the design for loading this stapler is ridiculous!

    I used my glue gun and made a rubber band repair. Added glued on pieces allow the rubber bands to hold the rod in place. A spur was added to the rod base and a spur was added to the handle.mThink of a rubber band gun.

    Glue on a tab to the back of the spring cap. Rework a paper clip to loop over the tab as a lock. Anchor the paper clip into the hole on the rear of the handle.

Yeah, unfortunately, I think these were designed as "throwaway staplers" - I tried to repair one once and couldn't get parts (and I had lots of connections for finding parts at the time).

I got 3 new red cap spring assemblies from Bostich Corp office by filing a complaint letter by email, fax, and postal mail.
I comment that Amazon Remarks label this as bad and it should be pulled from the market.

Get the glue gun out. Modify the rod and the handle so rubber bands can be used to hold the rod in place. Think of a kid's rubber band gun.....

Hi Diane,

If you look at the back of the stapler, there's a bright red button. Push this in and slightly lift up at the same time, then magazine is withdrawn. Feed a strip of staples in and replace the pusher unit.

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

There is a spring to push the staples into place. Bostitch was purchased by Dewalt and moved their parts lists to the web address below. Enter your model number and order the parts needed. Good luck with your future projects.
