In general, you push down on the contrasting colored plastic at the back of the stapler. This ejects the staple drawer at the front. Pull this out and add staples. Push back in and your are done.

how do put staples in this stapler? - vaduvur.jpg1. Hold the black handle -- top part -- of the stapler with your right hand thumb and forefinger. 2. Hold the metal casing right beneath the black handle, with your left hand thumb and forefinger. 3. Use your left hand thumb and forefingers and a wedge to separate the top black part and the metal casing beneath it. 4. Bingo!

Note: Switching the two different operations on to the other hand is unlikely to work.

What can I do to keep the stapler from jamming, and it is also not putting the staples in all the way?


You may be over filling the stapler, also make sure that you are using the correct staples. The fact that they are not going in all the way suggests that they are too long for the stapler. I hope this helps.

How do I reload staplers?


There are two basic designs of staplers. The most common type is the Swingline or Stanley Bowstitch types. At the business end of the stapler there is a small catch that you need to pull rearward and the front staple head will drop down. Inside, you will see a metal bar and a spring. Pull the spring back towards the rear of the stapler and insert a full clip of staples appropriate for your stapler. Release the spring slowly so the metal tab pushes against the staples... should be pointed tips down. Put the stapler on a firm surface and press it as you would when stapling something. The two parts of the stapler head will join back together again.

Help please! I have a Paper Pro high capacity stapler that will not staple. I can open it up and put staples inside, but no staple will come out when pushed down. Oddly enough, if I put ONE staple inside...


are you using the correct size of staple?? (thickness wise) secondly check the spring is pushing as it should, also a fix to get it working is as you put the staple stack into the stapler, seperate them and see if will staple. other than that it's defective and you should purchase a new one.

I have a stanley heavy duty stapler TC110. When I put my staples in, they don't seem to be catching. There is some black part sticking out of the end where the staples should come out. It looks like...


The staples load on the underside of the stapler.
Step 1 Push down and retract the stapler pushup mechanism.
Step 2 Position the stapler so that the moving hammer handle is down
and the staple exit is up
Step 3 Load the staples into the chamber on the bottom with the points up.
Step 4 Push the pushup mechanism into the locked position until it latches, you will feel the spring resistance as the staples are pushed into place.

Problem loading gun..Where do we put in the staples and change the dial to accomodate it? fred


The staples should load in through the end of the hammer stapler. The end is spring loaded to push the staples forward, so push the end - usually a crome square - into the handle end then move that part up approximately 1/4 inch and pull back. The spring mechanism should slide out so you can add new staples. These staplers take a specific size of staple and a certain number to allow you to put the spring mechanism back into the stapler. If you do not know the correct size for your stapler someone at your local hardware store can help you find the correct size and they will probably even show you how to load it. Good luck!
