Can't open or load my Alltrade 701-S-1 stapler?


Hello Carl, I have a Alltrade 701-S-1 stapler and I can't figure out how to load it. I can't find a way to open it. Maybe something is missing, but don't think so. Can you help? Thanks!


Hello Claudia,
Your unit loads from the back end and has a pusher that inserts from the rear and utilizes a spring tension to push the staples into the staple position. This unit is a copy of the Arrow brand stapler made during that time and if memory serves me, it was around the early 1980's. I visited my attic where I keep all old price sheets and found the unit in 1982. As near as I remember, the pusher required pushing in and up on it and pulling back for removal. In event you have lost the pusher, contacting Arrow Stapler online should get you a replacement pusher.

Thanks for asking,
