A Few Tips

This stapler is designed for stapling up to 240 sheets. It is best to use staple sizes designed for the number of sheets you are stapling regardless of stapler capability. We have enclosed two different staples sizes: one for up to 100 sheets, and another for up to 240 sheets. For best results, use the 100-sheet staples for all projects except those greater than 100 sheets. For projects greater than 100 sheets, use the 240-sheet staples. 

  1. DO NOT staple without staples.
  2. When stapling, be sure to slowly apply pressure to the end of the lever arm and push down until the stapling is complete. Quick motions with the lever arm will increase the likelihood of jamming.
  3. Jammed? Insert a pen or pointed object into the front slot on the stapler right above the staple exit point. This will push the jammed staples back into position.
