20 Most Recent Electric Stanley Tre500 Staple Gun / Sharpshooter Questions & Answers

  • This may or may not help, but I have one that was doing the same (as many as five at one trigger pull). I gave it the little WD40 and it still did the same. Then, I thought maybe it was the effect of not being used for a while. I proceeded to pull the trigger several hundred times (you can do this without staples loaded) and now, mine works fine. Seems to have helped.

Hi Nancy,

Do you mean it rapid fires, or do you mean fires the staples to deep?
If it fires too deep, the adjustment for that is on the back of the gun. The + and - give more/less depth. Adjust it towards the - direction to get the brad/staple to no penetrate as far.

Staples newly purchased will always be attached when purchased and that answers your question...wherever the device u are loading has a horizontal channel, there will be a loading window at the end. Take it apart by realeasing the cap or spring at the bottom and sliding the train of staples into the channel inside. Replace cap or spring lever to original position and secure. Stapler is now loaded.

Morning Rhonda,

According to Stanley's own website, the TRE500 will only use either 1/2" or 5/8" brads.

If it's still under warranty, I'd contact the people who sold it you. This is not working correctly
