Use the shorter staple
increase the punch pressure when the trigger is released ( there is an adjustment on the side for that purpose )

The staples go through the material, but don't fasten or close on the back side


This is not a type of stapler that clinches the legs of the staples. There would have to be a lower jaw to do that. Like a desk top stapler has.

Loading staples into a Stanley sharpshooter staplegun


There are 4 staplers in the Stanley SharpShooter family. You drop the staples on top of the "slide out loader," then slide it into the gun. See models and staple sizes below:

  • Stanley SharpShooter TRA700 series or Arrow T-50 heavy duty staples

TR150 SharpShooter
  • Stanley SharpShooter TRA700 series or Arrow T-50 heavy duty staples

I have a Stanley Heavy duty stapler Model# TR250 and for the life of me I cant load the staples. Please help!


Most staplers load from the rear, but not the TR250 Sharpshooter.

With the stapler upside down and the sliding rail out drop a whole strip of staples in the channel upside down (points up) and then push the slider back in making sure it locks.

I can not get the staples to go all the way into plywood


Try using both hands on the stapler. One on the handle with the other forcing down with your palm directly in line with the direction of the exiting staple. Some times this will allow the staple penetrate better. Make sure the stapler is square and firm on the work surface. Good luck!

How do you load nails in stanley tr250 staple and nail gun??


The magazine on the TR250 has a recess on one side as well as a relief at the top where the driver pushes them through the opening. Load the brads/nails on that side of the magazine and it should operate properly. AS A REMINDER: ALWAYS REMOVE NAILS/STAPLES/BRADS WHEN NOT IN USE AS THIS WILL WEAKEN THE SPRING AND CAUSE FEED PROBLEMS IN THE FUTURE.

Inserting brads into my Stanley TR250 Staple Gun


I bought one of these guns today and I had the same problem and it took me about 2 hours to figure it out as the instructions were very poor. Here how to load the brad nails:-

(a) Pull the slider bar all the way out
(b) Place the brad nail stick on the left side, IN FRONT OF the slider, NOT in the narrow gap in front of the two arrows where it says "LOAD BRADS"
(c) The nail heads should be facing the handle of the gun
(d) Close the slider and lock it
(e) Try it out. I tried nailing hardboard onto chipboard. The lever at low power only put the nail in about 30%. On Hi power it went in about 80%.

Good Luck
Peter

I AM HAVING TROUBLE OUT OF MY BOSTITCH MIIIFS FLOOR NAILER


D Farley,
I repair these nailers all the time. Anytime the nail or staple is bending you have 2 causes. Either the stapler has a broken blade, the magazine is loose on the foot gate, or you are shooting into plywood over concrete. that is allowing the staple to hit the cement subfloor. Use 11 /2" staples on 3/4" wood floor over 3/4" plywood when over concrete.

Tr250 does not drive brad nails all the way down.


Jason,

I think this is typical of these staplers/nailers. I bought a lighter model Stanley the first time and had this problem. I took it back and exchanged it for the heaviest Stanley they had at Home Depot and had the same effect. It drove the stapler a little deeper but not all the way.

I did find that if I put all the down pressure on the stapler right on the edge where the staple comes out and then pull the trigger it would drive the staple almost all the way in. I think that there is a recoil effect (like with a gun) when you pull the trigger and the staple enters the wood. Try this. it will help.


Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks for using FixYa
