NOTE:
There is a possibility that the tool may operate for
an instant when only the trigger is pulled. This does
not indicate a problem. If this occurs, point the tool
well away from yourself or any bystanders.
Release and pull the trigger again to make sure the
safety systems are in working order.
Sight window
Fig.5
There is a convenient sight window on the left side of the
tool (when viewing the tool from the front). Use this sight
window to check if there are staples in the magazine.
When staples are not visible through the window, load
staples into the magazine.
ASSEMBLY
CAUTION:
Always be sure that the tool is switched off and the
battery cartridge is removed before carrying out
any work on the tool.
Staples
Handle the staples and their box carefully. If the
staples have been handled roughly, they may be
bent out of shape, causing poor staple feed or
jamming.
Avoid storing the staples in a very humid or hot
place or place exposed to direct sunlight.
Do not attempt to use staples that appear to be
damaged, bent, rusty or corroded.
Loading staples
Fig.6
Press the plate spring on the rear of the sub-magazine
and slide the sub-magazine backward.
Load staples into the main magazine with staple ends
facing up as illustrated. Slide the sub-magazine forward.
Fig.7
To secure the sub-magazine in place, push the
sub-magazine while pressing the plate spring on the rear
of the sub-magazine.
Fig.8
CAUTION:
Always secure the sub-magazine in place, or the
staples can drop out and cause problems.
With the magazine loaded, if the tool is held
downward and the sub-magazine is opened, the
staples can fall out and present a danger to anyone
or anything below. Keep this in mind especially
when working in high locations.

OPERATION

Driving staples
Fig.9
Place the tool on the material to be fastened so that the
front and the rear of the tool contact the material flat. Do
not tip the tool to the right or left side. Hold the tool firmly
against the material. Then pull the trigger to drive the
staples.
If the staples are driven too shallow, press the tool head
as shown in the figure and drive the staples. If the
staples are still driven too shallow, adjust the driving
depth by turning the nut clockwise. Refer to ''Depth
adjustment''.
Fig.10
CAUTION:
Do not operate the tool without staples. It shortens
the service life of the tool.
If the tool becomes jammed, do as follows. First, remove
the battery cartridge. Open the sub-magazine and
remove the stuck staple using a screwdriver or the like.

CAUTION:
Always be sure that the tool is switched off and the
battery cartridge is removed before attempting to
