In the following tutorial, we will explain how to use a stapler. The topics discussed in this article will include how to load a stapler, how to unload a stapler, and how to remove a stuck or jammed stable from a staple gun. We've focused on office style staplers for this tutorial, as they are the most common and the easiest to get staples stuck in. In the photo below you will see two separate staplers. The stapler on the top uses a larger size stable. The stapler on the bottom, which is all black, uses a smaller set of staples. In fact, the stapler at the bottom actually has the wrong size staples, which we will discuss more in the following article.
There are basically three ways to use most office staplers. The first and most common is simply to staple two paper together. The others are a bit more complex, but we will discuss them all in the steps below.
Sometimes, a staple gets stuck in a stapler. While it is not difficult to remove, if you aren't careful, you can stick the end of a staple in your finger. This is not only painful but can also lead to an infection; so, it's best avoided. In this section, we will show you how to remove a stuck or jammed staple from your staple gun.
Before you load a staple gun, look to see if the staples are the correct side. Incorrectly sized staples will almost always result in a jam. Notice that the staples in the image below do not go all the way to the front of the staple gun. This is because they are too short or too small.
