Questions & Answers

How do I replace blades?

Asked by: Sammy
The secret seems to be to extend the blade positioning tab on the top of the knife to the utmost position at the front of the knife, depress the yellow tab on the side and carefully slide the old blade out and reverse it ti get full usage of both ends of the blade. If full blade replacement wanted, slide the old blade out and slide in the new blade. The blade must go straight in (not even a slight angle) and the downward angle of the blade must align with the end of the handle. Release the yellow tab and the blade should be locked in place. If not depress the yellow tab and reposition the blade.

Replacing blade on Stanley knife 10-788

Replacing blade on Stanley knife 10-788
Asked by: Vito
Vito, First, here is my review of the knife: I have used other brand name quick change knives previously, and have not had a problem. However this knife presented a challenge. The blade would not seat. I finally took it back to Home Depot and challenged the manager of the tool dept. to seat the blade. After ten minutes of trial and error, and changing to stronger glasses, he got it to permanently seat! RIDICULOUS!!!! AN INSTANT CHANGE KNIFE THAT COSTS MORE AND TAKES LONGER TO CHANGE THE BLADE; THAN A NORMAL KNIFE!! THE ONLY WINNER HERE IS STANLEY IF THEY SUCKER YOU INTO BUYING THIS KNIFE!!!! The secret seems to be to extend the blade positioning tab on the top of the knife to the utmost position at the front of the knife, depress the yellow tab on the side and carefully slide the blade in. The blade must go straight in (not eve a slight angle) and the downward angle of the blade must align with the to end of the handle. Release the yellow tab and the blade should be locked in place. If not depress the yellow tab and re position the blade. As I said in my review, and un necessary and frustrating time killer.

Instant Change Knife is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 43.

Didn't think I'd have to check reviews first before buying something so basic, but I was wrong. Got home to find out that it doesn't work. The silver lever refuses to budge, and therefore, I can't load the blade nor use the knife. Plus, the instructions are a joke. It only tells you how to remove a blade. Well, we can't remove a blade until you let us know how to INSTALL a blade. Gees! And be careful with removing the blades from the handle. The 3 blades are just sitting in there, so they fall out into your hand if you don't know what to expect when you open it, and they are super sharp. Really disappointed because it's already delayed my project for 4 days because I gotta return it! I certainly won't be buying this knife next time.

There are no instructions on how to insert the blade, thank goodness for the internet. I agree with others about the packaging getting stuck when trying to remove it. I always enjoyed Stanley products otherwise. My old knife that was held together with electrical tape works better and is easier to use. Diasappointed.

I never thought I'd have to look at a youtube video to learn how to insert a blade in a utility knife! And even after understanding the process, I apparently lack the hand strength to push the yellow button in far enough to engage the blade. It's going back if I can find the receipt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Construction Tolerances Very hard to change blades. HFC el cheapo from China actually much easier to use. Advance button very hard to use. Opening unit difficult to use. No instructions on how to insert blades. Made in USA? Probably that just means they screwed the two halves together in the USA.

But unless you enjoy the challenge of a chinese puzzle in the middle of a project (when it's time to switch out the blade) maybe it's not for you.

This product is a prime example of how far they have fallen. Why does something as simple as a utility knife have to be so complicated? From just getting the embedded unrippable packaging out of it, to even being able to load the thing, every "feature" of this thing is unbearable. Don't bother consulting the instructions, they're completely useless. All I wanted is something that I can cut open boxes with and this product fell woefully short. The only easy thing about this thing is the aforementioned unrippable packaging, so that it can be easily returned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hope you get a good one. I didn't. I'm glad some reviewers had no problem with changing the blade. My experience was different. The instructions were little help, so I went to online videos. They were clear and helpful. The trick is that you have to push the blade slider an extra bit beyond the "fully extended" setting. I understand that. But it won't go. I've pushed until my thumb is sore and my nail is cracked. I've used a flat screw driver to push down and forward. It just won't go that extra bit. I can put the blade in the end, but it won't lock into place and won't retract. Apparently there are good ones and bad ones. Mine is definitely bad and going back to the store. I won't get another of these.

Blade stopped retracting and now I can't get it to retract or to let go of the blade so I can try again. From the reviews it seems that your odds are 50/50 if it works or not. Not quality in my eyes.
