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

Open Question

Electric Model #42130: Is there something I'm missing with this stapler? I'm trying to open the back compartment to see if it needs staples. thought all I would have to do is push on the button with the staples icon & it would pop open. Nothing has worked. Additionally, it hasn't worked to staple anything when we have put in sheets of paper. i thought the batteries were dead, so I changed them & made sure the electrical cord was snug. I'm beginning to think "Bam" (our name for it because of the noise) has officially died :( any help.

SOURCE: Staple Gun Troubleshooting

Most of the staple gun models lack an "anvil" — the metal plate with curved slots that office staplers use to bend the legs of the staple inwards and flattens them against the paper. Staples set with a staple gun retain their straight legs, and are held in place only by static friction of the legs against the compressed surrounding material, much like common nails. Indeed, some staple gun models can handle brads and nails as well as staples. Some staple guns also use divergent point staples where the legs twist as the staple drives into the surface providing superior holding power.

I own a Power Sot and the directions are very clear. Squeeze the clip at the back of the unit and pull the spring-loaded clip out. Put your staples in and GO!!

SOURCE: Swingline Stapler Staples Only After You Open It Up....

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.

How do I load the stapler?


No you don't. We answer most things here.

If the stapler is like any of these

You push the back in slightly to unlatch it and then drop it down a bit and the staple pusher comes out completely.

How do I open the staple compartment? Already tried the back button


Pushing the button should eject the staple compartment from the front of the unit. It sounds as if the stapler compartment is jammed or corroded.
While pushing the button, attempt to pull the compartment from the front of the stapler. It should slide out like a drawer. Try pulling on the front of the compartment while applying a little pressure in different directions.
You may have to use a small tool to grab the compartment if you can't get a good grip. You may have to use some force. Use only as much pressure as you're comfortable with.
When you do open the compartment, inspect all moving parts and bearing points to be sure nothing is jammed, bent, corroded or seeing excess wear. Remove a jam with small pliers, being sure to get the entire staple. Use fine sand paper on corrosion and then treat with a bit of oil.

I can't seem to reload staples into this stapler. I used the staples that came with it and it worked fine. I try reloading and it doesn't staple.


With the stapler sitting a solid surface, turn it 180 degrees so it is pointed away from you, and you are looking at the back. Press down on the plastic extension that you see (about mid-height on the stapler). This releases the staple-holding compartment (it shoots out the front of the stapler). Reload it with standard staples, push the compartment back in place until you hear a click. Voila!

I have a bostitch stanley desk top stapler model # 02210, it will not activate the staple when you put the paper in it, does that little trigger in there have a spring on it because it will not return to...


The case of the stapler is glued together. To open the case requires carefully sawing it along the seams. The paper switch is spring loaded but the spring is built into the switch. It is possible that something is jamming it.

My swingline electric stapler model 42130 is jammed is there a manual release button the one on the back doesnt work


Taking the stapler apart is a complex task if you can figure how to do that.To dismantle the stapler, slide back the top, remove two small screws on both sides, six on the bottom, four of the screws are under the sticker so you must peel off the sticker, you must also remove the sticker on top. There two tiny shinny screws at the bottom once you are inside. Now you have access to more screws you can take off to get to the staples place where the jam is. Watch cables where they are plugged to in case they come off. If you are are a mechanical technician or technically inclined you might be able to fix this yourself but you must be very patient.

How do the staples stay in place in my stanley 1/4" stapler? They slide back and forth and therefore aren't in place for the stapler to work?


There should be a pusher that is attached to a spring. If the spring broke, or the pusher is missing the staples will not stay in place.

If you can locate a model number on the tool, you go to bostitch.com to find the parts you may need

Instructions on unjamming swingline electric stapler model 270; jam is at the front of the stapler; staplers come out either broken, flaten or crooked and does not secure document.


First, are you using the recommended staples for this stapler? Many heavy duty electric staplers don't use "standard" desk staples. Second, try unplugging the stapler, unloading the staples, and if possible, reach a couple of fingers into the stapler and try manually pushing up on the staple head to see if you can get the driver blade to come down. Does it come down smoothly, or does it seem like there is something stuck in there? If you aren't sure about disassembling the unit (my usual method-but I'd recommend having the parts diagram handy), try using a flashlight to look at the underside of the staple head, where the staples come out - can you see anything stuck in there? If so, you might be able to use a small knife blade or small dental pick to get jammed staple pieces out.
