Question about Staples Tools & Hardware - Others
Normally the staples are the same as the stapler designation
look for t5 staples
take on into the local hardware shop and ask for the staples

You should not need any tools to lift the guard/nose piece. The T5 nose piece cleary has engraved on it "Pull Up To Insert Staples". To remove old staples, use a pencil or similar rod to depress the hammer/striker above the staples while the nose is open.

When you lift up the top of the stapler (as though you are going to put staples in), does the pusher slide freely back and forth? It might be getting stuck at some point and not pushing the staples (either due to a worn pusher spring, or friction). First (after removing the staples) try spraying some light oil on the mechanism and lifting the top part of the stapler up and down a few times and observe how easily it moves back and forth. Also, with the top open try GENTLY sliding back and forth a little - if it slides fine with no sticking, try loading staples and using stapler. If it slides ok, but doesn't quickly return to it's "normal position" when pulled so as to put tension on the spring, rhen the spring may be worn and need replacing.

Yes you can. Google T5 staples and you'll get a lot of responses. I still use my Dad's every day on the job. Nice stapler

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!
