Question about Staples Swingline® 36115 Staple Guns Tools 1, 000 /box, Light-Duty, 5/16

Open Question

Swingline 8786X, Power Ease, Desk model, manual. Has a quick load button at the back that will pop out the clip when you are ready to load. I cannot get the clip back into the stapler. It is about 1 cm short of closing completely. I have tried to remove some staples and load a smaller amount of staples, I have tried to close it with no staples, nothing is working. I cannot open the stapler either to see if there is anything jammed or another button. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: Need staples for my Swingline Heavy Duty Tacker #800

I have 8 boxes of 1/4" staples, 1000 staples per box, and I haven't an 800 or 900 staple gun, so I'd like either an 800 or 900 Swingline staple gun or for someone to buy my staples.

SOURCE: Swingline Stapler Staples Only After You Open It Up....

When you lift up the top of the stapler (as though you are going to put staples in), does the pusher slide freely back and forth? It might be getting stuck at some point and not pushing the staples (either due to a worn pusher spring, or friction). First (after removing the staples) try spraying some light oil on the mechanism and lifting the top part of the stapler up and down a few times and observe how easily it moves back and forth. Also, with the top open try GENTLY sliding back and forth a little - if it slides fine with no sticking, try loading staples and using stapler. If it slides ok, but doesn't quickly return to it's "normal position" when pulled so as to put tension on the spring, rhen the spring may be worn and need replacing.

SOURCE: Nothing happens when you load paper to staple.

assuming it is plugged into a good power source and turned on (no offense intended, just getting the obvious out of the way - and I've fallen victim to the obvious myself before), look inside where you put the paper - is there a trigger mechanism? Most electric staplers have them (the paper hits the trigger and the stapler fires), and some allow you to set the sensitivity of the trigger. If yours allows you to adjust the sensitivity, try adjusting it. If it's not adjustable, the trigger probably needs to be replaced (under heavy use, they may need to be replaced every year or so).

Swingline optima 40 how do you open and close the stapler?


Swingline heavy duty staplers provide the power to staple up to 120 pages of 20-lb. paper easily and consistently. The all-metal construction of these staplers makes them an indispensible office tool. However, the way to load staples into a Swingline heavy duty stapler differs from the method for loading most other manual staplers and can cause a little confusion.
Difficulty:Easy Instructions

    • 1 Remove the follow block at the back of the stapler by pushing the mechanism in, lifting the block up over the holding hooks and sliding it out from the stapler. The follow block is the spring-loaded mechanism that holds the staples in place within the stapler.
    • 2 Load the heavy-duty staples into the staple tray.
    • 3 Replace the follow block by inserting it back into the stapler and locking it into place over the holding hooks.

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.

I have one of these models. Just push the gray lock mechanism at the end of the stapler and the loading magazine will pop out. The chrome plated magazine opens towrds the front....it slides forward and backwards.

My Swingline Optima Power Ease will not staple, nor can I open it to try to find out why. There are staples in there, but it feels like there are no springs


This happened to me as well. I am not sure what causes this but heres what I did to fix it.

Just grab the top part of the stapler ( where it says Swingline) and pull up, like you are trying to seperate the top and bottom. You will hear a click and your stapler should work fine.

Need help to reassemble Swingline Optima desk stapler


You must have purchased the Swingline Stapler that is actually a Paper Weight. Do you have the 747 model, the one the airplane of named after?
Sometime the imbeded PC fails, preventing the robotic controls to release the staple or to reassemble automatically.
Please return for a complete replacement and a free trip to Disey Lane just pay for transportation, tickets, lodging, food, shipping, packaging, and handling. Have a nice day and thanks for flying with us.
