How can I get my Stanley Heavy Duty stapler to work?

My stapler worked properly when I tested it. Then I refilled it and it no longer works.

Hi 4033sp45,


Thank you for your question and welcome to our community.


The most common problem with the stapler is a jam at the front of the staples where one of the staples has slipped and is lying flat instead of vertical.  The 2nd most common problem is having the incorrect type of staples installed in the staple.  Check the package containing the staples.  Be sure that it lists your style of staple gun.  The staples are not universal and are made for specific staple guns.

Be sure to check that the staple loader spring is functioning properly.  Pull out the mechanism that pushes the


staples forward to make sure that the spring is working properly. 


If you have a staple jammed on the action end of your stapler, you will need to use a needle nose pliers, to pull out the jammed staple.


Please let us know if you have any further questions.
