Some models has 2 screws on the knife case.unscrew them and you can access to the blade.

    it says on the packaging that it is quick blade change! Having to undo 2 screws just to get at the blades is not quick!! Unless for some reason i'm doing it wrong any other helpful ways of putting the blades in would be loads of help!!

None of these answers were very helpful, so I found a You Tube Video to figure this one out. Turns out it's really quite easy!

I have a stanley FatMax. How do I insert the blade into the case?


On the side there is a big gold wheel, twist counter clockwise and the case should split in half, the blade is held by a magnet, prise the old blade off and replace with new one, then put case back together and tighten gold wheel clockwise
Goodluck!

Describe how you put a blade in FatMax model 10-778


The model in your picture is a fixed blade utility knife (model 10-816). Your question asks for instructions for model 10-778, which is a retractable knife. I'll guide you through the 10-778 which you asked for, if you need instructions for the pictured 10-816 please re-post the question.

Push the thumb slide forward as far as it goes exposing the blade. Press the blade change button on the side of the knife (the small button on the left side near the blade) and pull out the old blade.
Insert the new blade and slide thumb slide back to fully engage blade in the internal lock.

The gold looking circle on the side of the utility knife. Just unscrew that and it will pop open then you can change the blade. I looked everywhere and am unable to find the instruction or picture. I own one and that is why I am answering this for you. Please rate

Just purchased a Stanley FatMax 10-778 retractable knife. Cannot figure out how to load the blade for use.


1. Make sure the side lock is unlocked.
2. Push the thumb tab all the way to the front of the blade handle.
3. Insert the blade in the opening, you may notice two notches on the top side of the blade.
4. Press the small blade release button as you slide the blade into the knife. You may have to jiggle up and down to get the two notches on the blade fully into the handle.

If properly inserted, the exposed area of the blade should look very close to an equilateral triangle.

make sure both notches of the blade are inside the handle. They notch into the thumb lever.

good luck
