This tool has one GLARING flaw - It's simply not immediately obvious how to PROPERLY operate it to change blades. However, I have it down pat, so follow along and learn:
To remove a blade, it takes three steps...
1) Push the slider button down and forward ALL the way to the front until it stops (three position stops)...
2) Now, PRESS the slider button down and press forward... it will click and stay down.
3) FIRMLY press on the yellow release button with your thumb and carefully grasp the blade with thumb and forefinger of opposite hand and withdraw it...
To insert a new blade...
1) PRESS AND HOLD the yellow button and grasping blade with thumb and forefinger of opposite hand, insert blade into tool and push all the way back until it stops moving (there should be little or no resistance).
2) RETRACT the blade normally.
1) If you try to insert a blade WITHOUT PRESSING AND HOLDING THE YELLOW BUTTON, the blade will pop the lock into place and the blade will not fit into the tool.Read more ›
There are no instructions online at Stanley and no video on YouTube by Stanley (Hellooooo Stanley....it is the 21st century....) I finally found a description of the slider button trick online at a DIY site. Pros: I still have my dad's Stanley utility knife from the 50's (the kind you have to unscrew to change the blade). I expect this Stanley to be 4- or 5-star quality and last forever. Plus ergonomic. Cons: I am giving only 2 stars, because this thing is so strange to load. (Hey Stanley, how about pre-loading the 10-788 with a blade? How about including a website address for the 10788 that comes up first when you Google Stanley 10788, with photo by photo instructions??)
If you decide to get this knife here is what you need to do to load it the first time:
--Get a blade out. There is a black release on the top of the knife on the tail end opposite the blade. Depress (rock forward). You will see it open if you look at the knife from the side. The lower half of the knife tail will swing down (the release and compartment are all part of the same piece of plastic). Take out a blade and snap it back closed.
--Slide the slider button in the slot on top of the knife all the way forward. This is what extends and retracts the blade when it is finally loaded (gold-colored button on mine).
--Push the slider button down AND HOLD IT DOWN, THE KEY INSTRUCTION MISSING IS HOLDING THE SLIDER BUTTON ALL THE WAY DOWN.Read more ›
