There is a spring to push the staples into place. Bostitch was purchased by Dewalt and moved their parts lists to the web address below. Enter your model number and order the parts needed. Good luck with your future projects.

The staples do not go far enough into the sdlide chamber to allow the hammer to strike the staple. The staples do not show in the openning when it is loaded. What am I doing wrong? I have a model D51420 18...


I believe on that model you have to release the magazine latch, pull the lower half all the way back, load the staples into the upper half of the magazine, then close and latch the lower half. The staple pusher and spring are located in the lower half so the staples need to be in front of that for them to be properly pushed into the nose. Also make sure you are running the correct staple. There are 1/4" and 3/16" narrow crown staples out there and they don't interchange. The staples should slide freely in the magazine when they are loaded.

How do I replace the staples in Stanley Bostitch B310HDS? I cannot seem to figure out how to open it.


"The staples load from the rear of the stapler. At the back end of the is a piece of black plastic that extends beyond the end of the stapler. This device holds the staples inside the stapler. To open the area where the staples are placed, push this extended button and lift up on it. The spring device that holds the staples inside the stapler will then slide out. Place a new strip of staples inside the stapler on top of the two metal guide rails. Then insert the spring device to lock the staples in place. The stapler is now loaded and ready to work. " hope this helps you out

I have an older Fasco stapler, it is orange in color. S3G 16 is number on it. The part that pushes out the staple has a piece of staple stuck in it. How can I get this out?


Some models have small screws on the face plate that can be unscrewed to release pressure or a spring clip to release. You can also push the plunger back into stapler with a thin narrow srewdriver, the staple may fall out.

Shoots staples fine but brads jam or bend. Check that the part called "guide bar", #35 on the parts diagram isn't getting stuck in the channel of part #30.

The guide bar retracts into the channel when driving a staple and springs out of the channel to guide brads.

The guide bar can get stuck in the channel if it's bent or gummed up. (Bent is likely the result of driving a brad into an obstruction.)
