What is the make & model of your Stapler (should be written under the bottom). The obvious question is, are you sure there's staples loaded in it? When you say you can't get it to work, does that mean you try to staple something but, it doesn't staple? Or, something else?

    Add a Commentto check if staples are loaded: Gently, hold onto the bottom postion of the staple dispenser and pull the top part up.

    oops, those checking instructions were for another model. I believe yours is a cartridge loader (on the front of the unit)

How do you load a ace heavy duty clipper stapler model number 82?


I found some information here:
ACE STAPLE Quality Tradition for Over 50 Years

It takes the Clipper Undulated Heavy Duty 3/8" Staples. On the back of the stapler, there is a loading rod. Remove the loading rod and place a set of staples in the chamber, then re-install the loading rod.

Help please! I have a Paper Pro high capacity stapler that will not staple. I can open it up and put staples inside, but no staple will come out when pushed down. Oddly enough, if I put ONE staple inside...


are you using the correct size of staple?? (thickness wise) secondly check the spring is pushing as it should, also a fix to get it working is as you put the staple stack into the stapler, seperate them and see if will staple. other than that it's defective and you should purchase a new one.

Since Sears does not manufacturer anything, your stapler could be someone else's rebranded. Check for Arrow staples or similar.

Loading staples


Powershot Pro (Model 8000) Loading staples is pretty much what you would guess,
EXCEPT that releasing the catch takes a very strong pull, or it won't budge at all. Grasp the black plastic catch at the rear of the stapler base, pull very hard (probably 5lbs or more) and the catch will move about 1/4" away from the stapler ("down" if you think of the stapler in its usual orientation.) You can then slide the catch and the spring mechanism "backwards" leaving room to insert staples or brads. (Note, "T-50" staples and brads should fit. If loading brads, they go along the side of the magazine which is closest to the "staples remaining" window.)

Someone loaded regular staples into our Swingline 45 Optima now it will not work when loaded with the correct staples.


Using the wrong or style ofstaples, overfilling the machine and stapling through too-thick materials can causeOptima to jam. Now follow these steps: 1. Holdthe base down as you lift the top of the Optima stapler to access the stapletray. 2. Removeall the staples from the tray so that you have access to the jammed staple. 3. Turnthe stapler upside down and shake it to clear out staples you can't reach withyour fingers. 4. Gripthe jammed staple with the needle-nose pliers and, while holding the staplersecurely, pull it up. 5. Twistthe staple until it breaks into two pieces if it will not pull straight out.Pull out the two individual pieces. The Optima stapler line bySwingline is designed to be jam-free when Optima premium jam-free staples areused. Using another , style or brand may cause frequent jamming. Hope thiswill help you. Good Luck.

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!

Stapler jams repeatably, chrome housing separating.


This is not the company that made it. The site you have is a site where people mostly volunteer their knowledge to try to help others. As for your power shot contact Black and Decker they make it and from what you've described you have a defective stapler.

Problem loading gun..Where do we put in the staples and change the dial to accomodate it? fred


The staples should load in through the end of the hammer stapler. The end is spring loaded to push the staples forward, so push the end - usually a crome square - into the handle end then move that part up approximately 1/4 inch and pull back. The spring mechanism should slide out so you can add new staples. These staplers take a specific size of staple and a certain number to allow you to put the spring mechanism back into the stapler. If you do not know the correct size for your stapler someone at your local hardware store can help you find the correct size and they will probably even show you how to load it. Good luck!
