How Do I Open an Eldon Office Stapler?

by Kallie Johnson; Updated September 26, 2017

An Eldon 1500 is a stapler that is manufactured for home and office use. It is available in a red, burgundy or black color. It is a full-strip stapler, meaning it holds a full strip of 210 regular-sized staples. It needs to be opened to refill the staples or clear any stuck or jammed staples.

Step 1

Grasp the silver staple holder between your thumb and pointer finger. It is the rectangular piece visible from the front of the stapler.

Step 2

Lift up on the top of the stapler to separate the top from the staple holder.

Step 3

Refill the holder with one strip of staples or remove the staples and clear any jam.

Step 4

Close the top by pressing it downward. You may hear a snap when it is locked into place.
