The Optima 45 is a very touchy stapler. Either you have a staple stuck or the unit is damaged. There is a five year warranty on the stapler so if you have had under five years it will be replaced for free. Here is the contact number. 1-800-541-0094

SOURCE: My Optima 45 has stopped stapling. I cleared the area of crimped staples but it won't punch out a staple. What can I do?

Try to take all the staples out then put a small amount of "Two in one oil" as it is very fine oil. Once you have done this wipe off the excess oil if you have a lot spill out wipe with a rag & use the rag to wipe over the underside of one row of staples.
leave overnight & try to use this again with the slightly oiled staples this should remove any oil left then see if this does the trick. (Note I hope you have the correct staples for the machine of course.) Best Wishes Malcolm

There may be a reset button / leaver open it back up have a look around and see if there is any thing like a leaver that needs to be pushed into place for the machine to recognise it has been reset.

Swingline Optima 45 Stapler - cannot slide tray back in stapler, no staples jamming


Sometimes the rectangular insert where the staples sit on, gets dislodged. On the underside of channel insert is a spring and when correctly seated is in between the tabs of the bottom piece. If the insert isn't in between the tabs, it sits too high and makes it difficult to open and close the staple tray. The staples will jam.

Staples will not come out of the stapler.


Did you use Optima brand staples? If not, the stapler will not work correctly. You must use their brand of staples or it will continue jamming, and giving you problems. The staples typically found right next to the Optima staplers in the office supply stores. They come in a rectangular metal box and are labeled Optima staples.

No staples coming out of machines


The Optima line of staplers do not work without jamming continuously unless you use the Optima brand staples. They can be found in the store next to the Optima staplers in a rectangular silver box, and will solve you problem instantly. There is no other brand of staple that will work in this line (I tried numerous), but once you purchase the Optima staples, problem solved, and you'll love it!

Someone loaded regular staples into our Swingline 45 Optima now it will not work when loaded with the correct staples.


Using the wrong or style ofstaples, overfilling the machine and stapling through too-thick materials can causeOptima to jam. Now follow these steps: 1. Holdthe base down as you lift the top of the Optima stapler to access the stapletray. 2. Removeall the staples from the tray so that you have access to the jammed staple. 3. Turnthe stapler upside down and shake it to clear out staples you can't reach withyour fingers. 4. Gripthe jammed staple with the needle-nose pliers and, while holding the staplersecurely, pull it up. 5. Twistthe staple until it breaks into two pieces if it will not pull straight out.Pull out the two individual pieces. The Optima stapler line bySwingline is designed to be jam-free when Optima premium jam-free staples areused. Using another , style or brand may cause frequent jamming. Hope thiswill help you. Good Luck.
