Hi Francis. Remove the staples from the Arrow P22. Place a piece of wood (rod) about a quarter of an inch thick between the arms of the stapler just behind where the stapler is ejected and press down a couple of times until the jammed staple is dislodged. If the plunger is already jammed in the downward position then first pull it up and then push it down again. This procedure has worked for me on a variety of staplers over a period of very many years. Good luck!!
It will probably have a release at the bottom rear of the stapler. Just push the release in and down to release the rod/spring assembly (the release catch may be silver in color). Drop in a stick of staples the reinsert the rod/spring and reengage the release.
Everyone here is assuming that you have fully operational gun. I have a business where we use these guns. I can tell you now that 3 out of 5 of the Arrow JT-27 just don't work. The staples won't advance. After looking at the information online, it is probably due to a weak spring. The best solution is to go with a different brand of stapler. This one is just not worth the trouble.
Find the button on the bottom of the stapler's back edge. Push the button in and down. Pull out the bar that pushes the staples into place. Slide in a row of staples with the points facing down. Push the bar back and lock it into place
I was having the problems everyone listed... with the staples loading & firing... I guess the instructions are lousy .. should be ON THE PACKAGE to make it clear.. but.. on the stapler itself on the bottom.. it explains how to correctly load.. you don't put the staples on the piece that slides out.. you slide it out, load the staples in the open tunnel ..then slide the piece back.. that piece is the spring loader... since i finally figured it out ( by coincidence that I turned it over & noticed some faint words printed) - it works PERFECT every time! great little stapler... please fix your directions... seems to be a common misunderstanding!!!
First, confirm that you have the right size staples. They are sized in two dimensions - width and length. The most common width sizes are T50 and T35. Your stapler and your pack of staples should have a number such as this. Your stapler will accept staples only of the correct width but of various lengths. The lengths are given in fractional inches - 3/8 inch and 1/2 inch are common.
But perhaps your problem is how to open the stapler. It does not swing open like a stapler you would use for papers. Instead, it has a sort of spring piston that has to be removed from the back-end of the stapler. If you lay the stapler down flat on the table so that the hinge of the handle is at the upper left corner, then what I am calling the back-end of the stapler is the lower right corner. Pick up the stapler so that you are looked directly at this back-end. There is a small metal square at this corner that is spring-loaded and is held in place by a little hook. Push in on this metal square as you move it up (or is it down?) to disengage the hook. Now the piston will pull out easily. Put your staples in the hole (they will only go in one way) and replace the piston.
I hope you found this helpful
