Please follow the steps listed below:

  1. Pull apart the spool.  The part of the spool with the spindle should be in your left hand.



  2. With your right hand, pick up the roll of labels and place it near the spool



  3. Carefully slide the roll of labels on the spool. Push the roll of labels firmly on the spool
    so that the notches on the base of the spool enter the cardboard core of the labels.



  4. There should be no gap between the base of the spool and the roll of labels.



  5. With your right hand pick up the other piece of the spool.  Carefully slide it down the spindle.  As in step 3, ensure that the notches enter the cardboard core of the labels.  The spool should be clamping down tightly on the roll of labels. 



  6. Place the spool in the LabelWriter.



  7. Ensure the labels are justified left.  Note the perforation between each label is on the left side and that the back of the label is facing upward.  Any other configuration would indicate the labels are not loaded properly on the spool.
