How to Load a TASER Cartridge into your device

Posted by Anthony Carli on 5/1/18 11:00 AM

Loading a TASER cartridge into a TASER Pulse or TASER Bolt seems simple enough, but proper technique is important to ensure safety to you and bystanders. Check out the steps below and a training video from TASER Instructor Sara Morrell.

Proper Cartridge Loading

  1. Safely remove the cartridge from the shipping container by pressing gently on the back of the cartridge.
  2. Power off the TASER device.
  3. Point the TASER device in a safe direction, away from yourself and others.
  4. Hold the cartridge on the sides with your thumb and forefinger.
  5. Slide the cartridge into the front of the TASER device until you hear a “CLICK.” This means the cartridge is in its locked position.
  6. DO NOT place your hand over the front of the cartridge, or point the device at others while inserting it into the TASER device.
  7. If the “CLICK” does not occur, you may use a hard, flat surface—such as a table or wall—to push the cartridge safely into the locked position.
