Strip staples and brads intended to be used in wood, are coated with a very thin film of lacquer. When fired into the wood the lacquer melts from friction and acts as a glue which is why they can be very hard to remove.

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.

SOURCE: Hi can't seem to reload stapler

All you do is open the end peice and slide the staples in on the two rails, point down. You should be able to see in the end to make sure nothing is blocking the rail with a flashlight. You probably have the wrong size staples. You can only use # 214, 215, 276.

SOURCE: refilling the staple gun

The staples do not go on the bar you pull back but directly into the bottom once you have pulled the bar back. I was trying to put the staples on the bar at the back and push them into the stapler.

SOURCE: staples are stuck inside the stapler and will not come out

Typically you do not open these up.
Makes it difficult to remove stuck or wrong staples.
I have had good luck removing the staple ram rod and rapping firmly on the **** of the stapler against a wooden table. The idea is jolting the stuck staples into reverse out the way they went in. Tedious process but usually works. Removing the jammed staples in the nose at the striker plate requires using needle nose pliers and a sharp awl or small screw driver used on very small screws.
My T50 Arrow stapler is over 20 years old.
Still works great. Sometimes I slide in the wrong size staples by mistake. The process above usually works.
Good luck!

How do you load staples into the Power Shot Model 5700M staple and nail gun? There is no manual in the package despite direction on the side of the gun to read it!

I have owned a Black & Decker Powershot before. Throw it away. They are **** . Stick with a Arrow or Craftsman. I didn't like the Black & Decker and gave it to a friend that was looking for a staple gun. He threw it away ! Worst excuse for a staple gun I've ever seen. Awkward to use and preforms on a scale of 1 to 10 , doesn't even hit 1 !

I am trying to staple screen on 1.5 inch pine frame with 1/2 staples, but I have to set them with a hammer. Am I expecting to much or is there a way to adjest it to run them in the who way /

I have found that staples will set well only if I use the palm of my hand to hold the front of the stapler down tight against the material as I operate the handle.with my other hand. Without holding it down this way the stapler tends to recoil a bit and the staples don't set all of the way. If that doesn't solve it for you, you could try using 3/8 staples, since the screen material is of negligible thickness. Good luck, Al K

How do i load the gun with staples

There is a clip at the lower rear of the stapler--lift this clip upwards which releases the staple tension device which is the clip, a rod, a long spring, and a 'U' shaped clip on the far end. Pull this device all the way out, insert one length of staples into the slot that is revealed, then reinsert the tension device until the small clip re-locks at the rear of the stapler frame. One staple ejects per squeeze of the firing lever--hold the nose of the stapler firmly to the material to allow penetration of the staple. Hope this helps!

Stapler will staple ok then it will jamb and break staple in half,and driver will stick but you can put driver back and will run for a short time then has same problem. It also is breaking up staples as it...

It sounds like the gun is working properly but is having feeding problems. First, make sure you are using the proper staples for your gun. Senco makes three versions of the SKS(XP) stapler: The SKS L11-17 drives 18 gauge, 1/4" staples. The SKS M12-17 drives 18 gauge, 3/8" staples. The SKS N12-17 drives 16 guage, 7/16" staples. None of them use staples over 1 1/2" long and each gun will only shoot the staples it is set up for. If you are using the correct staples make sure the rail and nose peices are clean and the feeder shoe and staples are riding freely on the rail and the feeder spring holds them firmly forward in the gun. Lastly check the tip of the driver to make sure it is square, it should not be rounded or have any chips out of it.
