Using Brads instead of staples is pretty straight forward. You can only use brads made by arrow and specifically designed for the T-50. Just be sure to load the brads according to the instructions. BTW, if your using a hardwood, you'll need to set the brad with a small hammer. I've found a light ballpien works great.

    I should have emphasized that the Arrow brand brads and staples work best in preventing jams. I've tried other brands and spent most of my time clearing staple and brad jams. The few cents more for the arrow brand is well spent.

    To help prevent jams spray a light film of WD-40 on the strip of staples or sleeve of brads.

How to load brads

My experience is limited with such things.

I have a couple of staple guns that will take brads, unfortunately the brads for one of them are no longer available. The brads had to have a shape and size similar one leg of the staple and a little of the bend at the top so they looked like an upside-down lower-case letter J and it was simply a matter of sliding a strip of brads into one side of the staple magazine.

The other staple gun will accept a more generic sort of brad in the same way but they have to be brads designed for use in that type of staple gun, known as a tacker so they aren't confused with the bigger staple/nail guns. The tacker will generally accept only brads of 20 or 18 gauge.

I suggest you ensure you have the right brads and then just load them like you would the staples.

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.)

Staple Gun Troubleshooting

Most of the staple gun models lack an "anvil" — the metal plate with curved slots that office staplers use to bend the legs of the staple inwards and flattens them against the paper. Staples set with a staple gun retain their straight legs, and are held in place only by static friction of the legs against the compressed surrounding material, much like common nails. Indeed, some staple gun models can handle brads and nails as well as staples. Some staple guns also use divergent point staples where the legs twist as the staple drives into the surface providing superior holding power.
