We have had numerous staplers for the above product. For the first 3-4 years we seldom had an issue. When we did, we would call customer service and they would handle the problem. NOW, we have had the same issue numerous times over the last two years and have finally given up. The stapler keeps malfunctioning (jamming constantly). We have found that it is not a problem with the stapler but with the staple cartridge itself. When this began, customer service sent a new batch of cartridges which worked great, but upon going back to the ones we had already, the problem reappeared. Now it seems that 9 out of 10 cartridges have issues and we counted ourselves lucky if we had 1 that seemed to work. We have gone to a different cartridge stapler by another manufacturer and have had no issues. We really liked the stapler, but were unable to deal with all the jams.

Not working

By 

from Elkhart, IN

Comments about Swingline 1/4"" Staple Cartridge:

I have a Swingline 5000 electric stapler. I use in infrequently, so the first cartridge lasted me several years. I recently bought a replacement when the original ran out. The new one jams. It will staple a few times, then it spits out straight staples (not crimped) for a while, then one if the straight staples gets stuck up in the mechanism. I eventually need to take the stapler apart to clear the jam. I fear the stapler may be useless now.

Staples jamming

By 

from Hainesville, IL, USA

Comments about Swingline 1/4"" Staple Cartridge:

For awhile I thought our stapler was bad. To find out its the cartridges not the stapler. We have a printing business and have 4 of the staplers in various sizes that we have had for years. I realized it was the staple cartridges when I ran out of staples and put a new cartridge in. The new cartridge kept jamming so I took that cartridge out and replaced it with one from another machine and that cartridge worked fine. I have 6 of these cartridges now, all of which jam. So it is really hit or miss whether the cartridges will work or not. We are now looking into new machines from a different manufacturer to eliminate this down time.

CAUSES FREQUENT JAMS

By 

from Maine

Comments about Swingline 1/4"" Staple Cartridge:

THE QUALITY OF SWINGLINE CARTRIDGE STAPLES HAS DECLINED TO THE POINT THAT THEY ARE RENDERING THE AUTOMATIC STAPLERS USELESS. ----- THE WIRE GAUGE THAT IS NOW USED TO MAKE THE STAPLES IS TOO THIN FOR THE STRIKER PLATE ON THE STAPLER TO HIT IT PROPERLY EACH TIME WHICH RESULTS IN FREQUENT JAMS. EACH TIME IT JAMS TIME IS LOST FROM WORK WHILE YOU FISH OUT THE JAM.
