How to Load the Staples One-Touch Stapler

by Rebecca Mecomber; Updated September 26, 2017

Most ordinary staplers lack the strength to affix more than a half dozen sheets of paper at one time. The Staples One-Touch hand stapler boasts exceptional stapling power. The lever design of the One-Touch is capable of stapling 30 pages at a time. The sleek design is engineered to provide powerful yet comfortable performance. Loading staples into this stapler is only a bit different than other models.

Step 1

Hold the stapler upside down. Grasp the base of the stapler and pull it up toward you, allowing the base to open up at the hinge.

Step 2

Press the small tab at the hinge to expose the staple compartment. If your One Touch model has a loading spring, pull out the loading spring.

Step 3

Insert the staples, upside down, into the compartment. Reinsert the loading spring until it clicks into place.

Step 4

Close the staple compartment. Close the stapler base back into position.
