Hope the following is clear if not write back and I'll try to clarify, if you look at the body of the stabler molded to the body there is a bump that is round on the botton and kinda notched on top. the round part of the spring fits around the bump. The spring has a straight side and bent side. the straight side rests against the a flat bump which is slight back and lower than the round bump. the bent side clips into the notch on the handle (clip this end in last) I used a plier but there is very little tension involved the spring just returns the handle to the at rest position,

Rexel Odyssey heavy duty stapler: The pring that pushes the staples into position can come losse if the stapler iss dropped. It's difficult to work out how to replace it! However, there are only two "lugs" that will take the circular ends of the spring. One obviously fits to the sliding staple retainer. The other to the back end of the pressed-metal inner body. However, to work, the spring must be threaded from this point along the pressed metal parallel-sided inner body over a rounded bent piece (shiny from prvious friction) and back down to the sliding staple retainer. It's trickey to do, but that's where it has to go in order to provide forward tension when the Stapler is closed.

NEED INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO ASSEMBLE INTERNAL SPRINGS AND PARTS...


After disassembling my EasyShot 5650, I had the same problem with the pesky spring. NOTE: The spring in question is NOT the tension spring for the staples.

The picture shows the internal schematics of an EasyShot 5650 staple gun or tacker by Arrow. It was taken from a reverse engineering project for school kids. Unlike the boring grey one in the picture, the most updated version of the EasyShot 5650 comes in translucent jewel tones.

Call the manufacturer with your email address and ask for detailed instructions on how to replace the pusher and spring on your specific model number.
These are instructions on replacing the spring and pusher for Pneumatic model #'s: 9600, 9610, 9615.

1. Wearing protective eyewear, remove air line supply HOSE from your gun, turn gun upside down holding the front of the gun in your left hand

2. Remove u-shaped piece that holds the track in place at the back of the bottom of the gun.

3. Slide track out of gun.

4. Take the long black spring (part # 38) and hook one side of it to the hook inside the pulled out track.

5. Feed the other side of the spring under the silver wheel in the front of the track and pull it up holding the tension. You might need to use the end of a paperclip to feed the spring through.

6. Take the u-shaped pusher (part # 33) and place the other end of the springs hoop onto the hook inside part #33. Make sure the opening of the hook faces the back of the track, and that you see the yellow tape so that it will show in your view window.

7. Carefully place part #33 with the spring attached and the opening of the hook facing the back of the track, back onto the front of the track. The springs tension will hold it in place.

8. Carefully slide the track back into the bottom of the gun making sure you are placing each side of the track into the grooves.

9. Carefully snap the u-shaped lock back onto the bottom of the track to hold the track in place.

10. With the tool upside down, slide your track open and be sure to place your staples in the bottom of the gun itself with the points of the staples pointing up towards the ceiling, not on the track.
Parts are available online at www.surebonder.com on the left hand column, select Pneumatic Parts, then select your tool. It will bring you to the ordering page.

I removed top spring how do I reinstall and load spring


were you reloading the staple gun, now you want to put the spring load back in it to lock it to use it? slide it in, and push downward to lock it in.

Cannot load staples


At the back of the staple gun is a flat shaped metal piece. It's at the bottom. Push in, pull down, then pull the mechanism out. You'll see it's a metal rod with a spring, that is attached to that flat metal piece. The spring pushes against another flat metal piece, that has a hole in it, and travels back, and forth on the rod.

The flat metal piece that the spring pushes down the rod, pushes against the staples.

Remove this spring mechanism, slide the staples down the rails. The staples will be in the position of an upside down U. Replace the spring mechanism, and lock it back into place. (Push in, pull up)

Should, your question be in reference to the fact that you have staples loaded, but upon pressing the trigger nothing comes out:

In the front of the staple gun, is a flat metal piece that pushes down on the staples. One staple at a time. The flat metal piece is shoved down by spring pressure. The spring pressure is applied to the flat metal piece each time you squeeze the trigger. (Flat metal piece = Hammer)

Sometimes, Two staples try to come out. When they do, this flat metal hammer is stuck up in the gun. To free the flat metal hammer, remove the spring mechanism out of the back of the staple gun. (The spring mechanism discussed above) Remove any staples in the gun.
Try to use a flat blade screwdriver, and see if you can shove the flat metal hammer in the front of the gun -> UP.
(DO NOT have the staple gun pointing at your face! DO NOT squeeze the trigger! DO NOT use excessive force)

If this method is of no avail for you, you have to disassemble the gun, and remove the metal hammer, and stuck staple/s.

There is a Stanley bostitch model B2000 stapler in my classroom. I need to fix the spring that advances the staples and holds them in place! wehre do connect the spring?


The person that asked this is probably long gone, but in case anyone else comes across this... I had the exact same problem when I dropped this same stapler today and the spring came out. After examining it for a bit, I realized where the spring had to go and fixed it.
Open the stapler the same way you would as if you were replacing the staples and look at the top piece, towards the back. There will be an elongated black hook here to attach one end of the spring. The trick is where you route the spring after that... look towards the front end of the same top piece, and you'll see 2 holes in the metal. You need to push the spring up through the first hole, then pull it back down through the second hole (you may want to use a straightened paper clip to snag the spring so you can pull it through that second one), and only then do you attach the other end of the spring to the hook in the sliding metal piece that advances the staples in the staple holder.
And that's it!

Staple gun has staples but quit working.


I hae the same problem. I don't know the real names of the parts so I will make up my own and try to describe them. The problem with mine is that the "hammer" (the piece in front that slams down on the staple and shoots it out) is broken. The "hammer" has two notches that the tension spring (actually a metal bar with two tongs not to be confused with the spring the returns the handle to the at rest position) fits into. One of these notches on the hammer is broken. Therefore one side is not attached to the tension spring the causing the other side to slip off and since the hammer is not connect to the tension spring you get no resistance. Unfortunately I could not find anywhere that sells a replacement peice.
