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

SOURCE: I have a stanley FatMax. How do I insert the blade

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!

SOURCE: Stanley 10-777 utility knife: I need to reinsert

I had the same trouble. The blade holder was out of the knife and would not go back in. I fixed it this way: open the screw knob all the way to the least tension. Slide the two parts open but not all the way- there is a tab on the blade holder that gets in the way if you try to drop it in at the fully open position. With the two halves SLIGHTLY open- slide the blade holder in making sure that the tab is seated in it's slot. Depress the thumb tab and bring it to the most forward position and the two halves should be able to be seated together again.

I disassembled the Stanley 10 - 788 utility knife completely how do I put it back together


This utility knife reassemblies similar to the original. The only difference is this model uses two screws and that plastic insert. You will align the two metal halves and bring them together. Use care that the blade does not fall out of its holder and the little black plastic piece stays in place, near the blade. This may take a few tries. after you bring the two halves together you will carefully separate the bottom end (farthest from blade). Separate it just enough to slide the plastic insert into position. Once the three pieces align you will know. With little effort the two metal halves will close together. Install the two set screws and test for proper function. I'm including a Youtube video that shows how to properly change the blade and what it will look like after it is reassembled.

Can't reload utillity knife fat max10-778


Hi Mark,

I have several of them. Are you having trouble getting the handle to open up?

I have found that the blade needs to be all the way in to open it. Also, to get the blade holder to sit right.

If this is not the problem, please reply back. Thanks,
Handie Andie

Stanley 10-801 utility knife. How do you change the replaceble blade?


On the pivot end of the bladed knife is a black plug that says pull. They actually mean "Push". push it away from the knife body and rotate the handle half it's mounted in, down. The body will rotate in half , revealing the utility blade and more blades in the rear storage.Also note the blade depth adjustment has a locking detent. You have to push it to the right to unlock the utility blade.and push it to the right when retracting to fully retract and lock the utility blade.
