      Comments about Stanley® Fat Max Retractable Utility Knife (10-778):

      I'm usually quite pleased with Stanley tools; they're usually well made, work well, and econonical. So the poor design and lack of instructions with this product is both surprising and disappointing.

      At first glance, I liked the knife's angled handle and and the in-handle blade storage.

      Unfortunately, the loading of the blades is not obvious and the instructions for it are virtually nonexistent (what little there is poorly written and unclear). Once I was able to load the blade (thanks to a search on the web I found a contractor who had figured it out -- he found the instructions just as poorly written and cryptic as I did), the slider to extend and retract the blade did not work. I'm sure with a bit more time I'd get it to work, but at this point I'm taking it back the store I bought it from.

        Had to visit this site to learn how to change a blade as the instructions on the package are poorly explained. But thanks to Tollnut from Silver Springs I figured it out. I'll recommend it with hesitation.

              I have used many utility knives over the years and have never had a problem changing blades on any until this one. I cannot get the blade changed, nor can I find instructions on how to do it. I plan to throw this cutter out and get a different one. Don't bother with this knife, it is not worth the frustration!

                Comments about Stanley® Fat Max Retractable Utility Knife (10-778):

                Those having trouble loading or changing blades probably should not be around sharp objects of any kind. The blade storage compartment easily allows blades to be dispensed, and changing/inserting a new blade involves simply pushing and holding the release button while sliding the blade into place. This is clearly described on the packaging. A good tool.

                      I agree with the reviewer "Joe the Toolman". What should be an easy to use tool has turned inconvenient and/or impossible to use. I believe the design intent is for someone to able to have the blades push out, one after another, but I wasn't able to load the blades.It may be a great tool, but there are no instructions to show you, and it is ambiguous.

                              We usually like Stanley products-- NOT THIS ONE! They took an inexpensive, easy to use product and ruined it. Hard to replace blades--- AND, YOU HAVE TO BUY A SPECIALTY TOOL JUST TO GET IT OPEN!! What a headache!

                                  Loading the blade is very difficult and there are no instructionsg covering this important necessary item. Could lead easily to accidents.
