    Staplers have two settings! 1. Press the tab on the bottom that makes the stapler open up wide. 2. See the plate that the staples land on when they come out? It has arrows on it- push it and move it back to the other position. FIXED!

Take your staples out of your stapler and reinsert new ones.
Try that and see if it makes any difference.

SOURCE: We have a Swingline 690

I had the same problem with my 690. This is what worked for me.. I simply pulled out the staples from the cartridge a little further than the suggested tear-off point, and the machine was able to start working. Hope this helps!

How do I open and load staples in my swingline 665xx?


Take off the part at the opposite end of where the staples come up and press down the little metal piece that sticks out. The part where the staples load should then click out for you.

How do I open the swingline optima model # 8784x to reload staples?


I couldn't open my Swingline Optima model 8784x either. Their website wasn't helpful except they mention you can change staples "with the push of a button." Button, I thought. What button? In the picture, there's a black button at the back end of the stapler. Mine is missing! The button, if it were there, would press down on a metal tab, releasing the staple slide which pops out the front. Insert staples, push it closed, you're done! I used a letter opener to push down the metal tab.

Swingline, now owned by ACCO, should have a service manual that would tell you how to clear jams - here's the url - http://www.acco.com/contactus.aspx#swingline. If not, you can also send them your question directly so they can help you resolve the issue.

How do I open the swingline model 900xd


It took me and my boss wrestling with this mongo stapler for 15 minutes to figure it out! :0)

To open the front end, pull up on the handle while simultaneously pushing down on the small black lever on the front. This takes some firmness and be warned, if it's jammed with staples it's going to take some serious force to get it open - watch your fingers!!! I strongly suggest the minute you get a jam, open up the front and clear it. Don't continue to staple in hopes it will work or clear itself or you will have a build up of jammed staples making it almost impossible to open and clear. Also note that when you open up the front end the staples tend to shoot out so be careful.

To open the back end to load staples, push forward and up.

Hope this is of help :0)
