1. First you pull the top of the stapler all the way until it's at about a 150 degree angle.
2. The spring should still be there but just not connected to one end and it should have a ring on the end. Take that ring and connect it to a hook which should either be on the sliding part of the stapler most likely, or on the top part.
3. Close the stapler and it should work.

    nope... definitly NOT how this stapler was assembled...
    if the spring fell off; so did the black metal thing that pushed the staples forward.

    I just had this problem and this site was NO USE!
    so.. for the next person...
    1) make sure you have all the parts: Spring; black metal slide; stapler
    2) get a paperclip or anything to fit into the holes on the spring.
    3) indentify where the hooks are located on the black slider and on the silver stapler tube
    4) bend the spring and fit it through the front of the metal shaft where you see a black circle on top
    - when looking through the stapler; below the black dot should have some weird looking nub.
    - bend spring to fit through the upper parts of that thing. (one per side)
    - I guessed about which side was connected to which part. Used the offset ring to the edge to hook on to the metal shaft. centered ring to connect to black slider.
    - both springs should be directed to the back of the stapler
    5) open the paper clip and fit it through the hole on the spring. i started off with using it to hold the ring that is going to be used to connect to the black slider. This allowed me to pull the spring without having to struggle.
    6) get a grip of the other side of spring (i used another paperclip to get a hold of it)
    7) hook it on to the metal shaft.
    8) pull on the opposit side of the spring (connected to the paperclip) and attach to black slider.
    9) position the black slider back on the metal shaft

    and that should be it...

How do I reload staplers?

There are two basic designs of staplers. The most common type is the Swingline or Stanley Bowstitch types. At the business end of the stapler there is a small catch that you need to pull rearward and the front staple head will drop down. Inside, you will see a metal bar and a spring. Pull the spring back towards the rear of the stapler and insert a full clip of staples appropriate for your stapler. Release the spring slowly so the metal tab pushes against the staples... should be pointed tips down. Put the stapler on a firm surface and press it as you would when stapling something. The two parts of the stapler head will join back together again.

How to put the spring back in the handle of Arrow T50 Stapler?

Ref. recocking the spring handle in your Arrow T 50 Stapler
1. secure the stapler in a vise. You need three hands to recock the handle spring.
2. Using a notched tack lifter hand tool, with one hand holding the handle so as to expose the spring, place the notched tool against the spring arm and force it to the rear. it will now be under tension.
3. Wiggle the handle into position so that you can quickly insert the clevis pin. Once secured, let go your handle that is now under tension. Replace clevis ring.
4. Dry fire to test.

Reinstallation can be tricky. You have to be careful to avoid stretching the spring too much. That will weaken it.

My rexel stapler does not work, any help[

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.

Instructions on how to load a swingline heavy duty stapler.

You pull up and back on the stapler head. Then pull out the spring that keeps the staples loaded. Be careful as the spring is very strong. Then put in the staples and put the spring back in behind the staples.

Problem loading gun..Where do we put in the staples and change the dial to accomodate it? fred

The staples should load in through the end of the hammer stapler. The end is spring loaded to push the staples forward, so push the end - usually a crome square - into the handle end then move that part up approximately 1/4 inch and pull back. The spring mechanism should slide out so you can add new staples. These staplers take a specific size of staple and a certain number to allow you to put the spring mechanism back into the stapler. If you do not know the correct size for your stapler someone at your local hardware store can help you find the correct size and they will probably even show you how to load it. Good luck!

See above

317b762.jpg4a538aa.jpg067f3f0.jpg5077a62.jpgca392ef.jpge76904e.jpg77309d5.jpgThis is an older b&d stapler but the designs are similar in most cases. The position of the springs, and the order you put them in, are an obvious factor.
The parts that overlap go in after the parts underneath.
When you have one half assembeled you should not have to force the cover to go on, it should just sit in place while you put the screws back in.
If the handle coil spring and the flat spring are not seated properly the top cover will not go on easily.
These types of staplers are designed to clear from jamming without being taken apart, the staples, under normal circumstances, do not have access to the body of the unit past the flat spring.
As with any tool forcing the tool after a fault will only make matters worse, I would try some light oil or spray lubricant first before taking anything apart, these springs can be a pain to get back in, which is why I have not taken this one any further apart. Hope this helps you. If it does please let fixya know.
