I purchased a some days ago at Sears in Lebanon NH a 2" Craftsman brad nailer 6G28/F50
When the brad nailer jams I tried to follow the instractions on the booklet.
On page 6 "Clearing a jam from the tool" point 3
I read
< undo hook by pushing down on the button on the side of the magazine. The button will disengage the hook from the nose...
the door can now be rotated and so on... >.

The problem is that I do not see any suitable button to push.

Hello -- above is a picture of a Craftsman Brad Nailer 6G28/F50. At the front of the gun, on the magazine, is a lever or button that you pull down, after pulling down lever lift up the disengaging face and then it should be open at that point so that you can clean the blockage in your magazine.


I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have further questions.

I send hereafter a picture of my brad nailer. As you can see clearly is a model similar to the one in your picture but not the same. The code on the nailer 6G28/F50 is the same. I have a booklet of instructions with a drawing like the picture I am sending you, but the wording of the instructions refers to something that does not exist on my real tool.
Particularly you can see that her is no lever or button on the nose.
I bought this nailer in bundle with the cheap 3 EVOLV air compressor. I think that the nailer is a simplified version without the system of clearing jams.



Hello. I took a closer look at your model above and on-line, and I see your point that there does not appear to be a separate lever to open the faceplate to get at the area of potential jamming. My suggestion is to remove the 3 screws on the front of the gun on the face, clear out the jam, and put the plate and screws back on. This seems to be a lot of trouble, I agree, and if it is still fairly new and you have the receipt you might want to take it back to the store and exchange it for a model that actually has the levers on it (the store will let you open the boxes to examine the tools before you purchase).
