Defect from manufacturing process

Sadly, the staple cartridge doesn't live up to the robust build of the stapler itself. Plastic magazine housing appears to be injection-molded in two halves, which are press-fit together once a roll of staples has been inserted. Unfortunately, it appears staples on the roll can be bent during this step in the process. I had to prime several inches of staples before I discovered why nothing was feeding reliably. See photo. It took pliers to pull the bent section through the magazine's feed lips. I think a person without an engineering background would have given up long before the problem was found.

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

1

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

1

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.

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.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
