      Comments about Stanley Tools Stanley Instant Change Utility Knife with Retractable Blade:

      Like many of the others, at first I had a very difficult time installing the blade. The instructions are tiny and not very concise. The trick to getting the blade in or out is to extend the blade beyond the normal extended position. Then you can easily depress the yellow button to change the blade. The replacement blade compartment is also less than intuitive. other than that, the knofe works just fine.

      Dumb Instructions

          Comments about Stanley Tools Stanley Instant Change Utility Knife with Retractable Blade:

          Yes, the instructions are worthless! You must extend the blade lever completely out (towards the black rubber up front) and then depress the yellow button while putting the blade in, otherwise the blade will go beside the holder that's inside and it just falls back out. Once you figure it out it works pretty good!

            It always amazes me how so many products can be made and sold with, apparently, no one checking to see how they function. Such is the case with this knife! Inserting the blade and have it actually stay in is a real challenge. The directions are worthless!

              To change the blade: press the yellow button, while holding button down pull out the old blade.
              Inserting the new blade: again press the yellow button, while holding the button down insert the new blade. Easy as 123.

                  Comments about Stanley Tools Stanley Instant Change Utility Knife with Retractable Blade:

                  Bought this at a big box store as a set with two retractable knives. The retractable with the screw to open was simple and well made, easy to change. The Instant Change was not so instant. The directions on the back of the package to change the Instant Change was only a pictorial. Without going on line and looking at a You Tube, I would never have known to push the yellow button (which happens to have very little give so you're not sure if you are pushing it at all). I would have been happier with 3 Interlock reractable knives than this Instant Change Model. After several attempts with my arthritic hands, it finally fit. Stanley could make better directions rather than frustrate me.

                    The other two reviews are correct. I spent 10-15 minutes trying to insert the blade by following the tiny drawing on the back of the package. Went to [@] and had the blade in in a few seconds. Works pretty good with good instructions. I don't know why stanley couldn't write instructions.

                      Either I'm an idiot, or the design is defective. Glad to see I'm not the only person who's having trouble just getting the blade in. I bought it because it looked easy to change the blades. Boy was I wrong. Don't waste your time purchasing this.

                        Just bought this knife and I can't return it fast enough. Absolutely no instructions on how the change the blade. Being that you're dealing with a very sharp blade this is very dangerous.
