Question about Staples Swingline® 36115 Staple Guns Tools 1, 000 /box, Light-Duty, 5/16

Open Question

Swingline Optima Grip electric stapler will staple correctly once, then will not staple. I must eject staple tray using the button on the back & push the tray back in. I'm having to do this after just about EVERY staple. I use Swingline Optima "jam-free" staples, and the stapler is ~6 months old. Any advice?

SOURCE: Nothing happens when you load paper to staple.

assuming it is plugged into a good power source and turned on (no offense intended, just getting the obvious out of the way - and I've fallen victim to the obvious myself before), look inside where you put the paper - is there a trigger mechanism? Most electric staplers have them (the paper hits the trigger and the stapler fires), and some allow you to set the sensitivity of the trigger. If yours allows you to adjust the sensitivity, try adjusting it. If it's not adjustable, the trigger probably needs to be replaced (under heavy use, they may need to be replaced every year or so).

My Swingline Optima 20 electric stapler will not release the tray to add more staples. How can I fix this?


Most likely a staple is jammed near the discharge end. Get a small screwdriver or pick and try prying out any stuck staples. Usually a little force will pop the release tray out.

How do I get this stapler to work when it has the correct staples in it?


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.

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!

Swingline optima 40 how do you open and close the stapler?


Swingline heavy duty staplers provide the power to staple up to 120 pages of 20-lb. paper easily and consistently. The all-metal construction of these staplers makes them an indispensible office tool. However, the way to load staples into a Swingline heavy duty stapler differs from the method for loading most other manual staplers and can cause a little confusion.
Difficulty:Easy Instructions

    • 1 Remove the follow block at the back of the stapler by pushing the mechanism in, lifting the block up over the holding hooks and sliding it out from the stapler. The follow block is the spring-loaded mechanism that holds the staples in place within the stapler.
    • 2 Load the heavy-duty staples into the staple tray.
    • 3 Replace the follow block by inserting it back into the stapler and locking it into place over the holding hooks.
