Staples can be used for much more than just joining stacks of documents together. Staples can also come in handy for a variety of craft and construction purposes. The Stanley TR100 staple gun is designed for the latter purpose. It is powerful enough to be perfect for stapling down carpet into a remodelled room or tacking up loose wires. However, the Stanley TR100 is nothing without staples. They must be loaded in, which is not difficult, but you need to know the correct way to do it.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Hold the staple gun upside down and locate the black staple loading area. Push up and forward on this area and pop out the staple reservoir. Make sure that there are no staples or debris jammed inside of the reservoir.

  2. 2

    Load the staples of your desired size into the gun. The staples should be facing up and should be tightly held together and not broken. You want to place one long, unbroken bar of staples gently into the gun and slide them all the way forward.

  3. 3

    Close the staple reservoir securely to lock the staples in. Test the gun once by shooting out a staple to make sure it is firing correctly.

Tips and warnings

  • The Stanley TR100 can handle staples of the following lengths: 1/4 inch, 5/16 inch, 3/8 inch, 1/2 inch and 9/16 inch.
  • Be careful when loading staples into the gun. Never hold your face over the staple exit or load the gun between your legs.
