The Stanley Staple gun is a heavy-duty staple gun that you can use for decorating, upholstery, construction, or crafts. The tool uses Stanley heavy-duty staples from ¼ inch to 9/16 inch long. It has a loading window on the front of the gun that allows you to see when you are almost out of staples. Also, it has a locking handle that prevents staples from misfiring.
You can use the Stanley staple gun for quick, simple, and effective upholstery, light construction, and trimmings. Loading your Stanley staple gun is easy to load. The loading process is not complex. All you need to do is understand the type of your staple gun and you are good to go.
Loading the Stanley staple gun is an easy task. The Stanley bottom loader has a spring-loaded plunger, which you retract by gripping it from the rear of the magazine and you need to pull it back. However, you need to note that the plunger does not come out. You need to pull it out as far as it goes and put your Stanley staples directly into the loading latch with the staple legs facing out.
How to load the Stanley Sharpshooter Staple Gun:
- Here are the steps to follow when loading the Stanley Sharpshooter staple gun:
- Make sure that the handle safety is on and that you have locked down the handle. This will prevent misfiring if at all there are any staples left in the magazine
- Turn the staple gun upside down and locate the lever, which holds the magazine in place. The magazine of the Stanley Sharpshooter staple gun is at the front of the stapler
- Release the loading latch at the end of the staple gun and pull the side open. Pulling the lever out exposes the magazine
- Insert your staple strip. Ensure that the legs of the staples are facing up
