How to Load a Monarch 1115 Price Gun

monarch-1115.jpgLoading the Monarch 1115 price gun is very similar to the Monarch 1110. The only difference between the two is that the Monarch 1115 gun has a label guide. The Monarch 1115 is a very popular two line label gun.

You want to first tear off the first fourteen labels from the roll of Monarch labels. The glue used to bond the last label to the roll should not go through the gun in order to avoid any jamming of the label gun in the future. With the labels coming off the top of the roll, snap the roll into place between the hubs on the back of the gun. As the roll is going into place, feed the strip through the top of the plastic label guide. Then, squeeze and hold the hand trigger half way. This will allow you to feed the label strip down the guide and through the gun. Go until about twelve labels are coming out the front of the Monarch price gun. Let go of the trigger to engage the brake wheel. Hold the front of the gun toward you and take hold of the labels. Feed them behind the black, plastic plate and stop when two labels are coming out the top right by the roller wheels. Again, squeeze the hand trigger half way and rewind the label roll as to get rid of the loop of labels in the front. Rewind until the loop is gone and the labels are tight and let go of the hand trigger. Next, grab the two Monarch 1115 labels and pull down hard and fast toward the base of the hand trigger. This action will help peel off the labels from the backing paper.

There should now be about eight inches of backing paper coming out the front of the Monarch price gun. Turn the gun upside down and feed the backing paper into the avenue that will pull the paper through the gun right on top of the hand trigger. Once you feel resistance, start clicking the hand trigger and the backing paper should catch on the feedwheel. Turn the gun right side up and continue clicking until printed Monarch 1115 labels come out the top of the gun.
