Introduction A stapler is a very helpful and useful tool. It can be used in many places e.g. Work or at home. Staplers are a school utensil.
Description Staplers vary in shape. They can also be different colors and sizes. Staplers have 8 parts to them. It consists of mainly the head (1)and the base (4).

Description of stapler parts 2 Inside the stapler are springs (7). One spring pushes the staples down the magazine to reload the stapler. The other pulls the stapler back up after it has stapled the document. On the base there is an anvil (3) which is a metal plate that the staple is forced into. This makes the staple bend and hold the pages together.
How it works!!! The body is opened which causes the spring to move with the body. Then the staples are loaded. The thing you want to staple is placed on the metal plate called the anvil. When pressure is applied to the top of the stapler the magazine is pushed down on the paper, the front staple is moved down the magazine. The two points of the front staple are forced through the paper and contact the anvil. The ends of the staple are forced into a groove on the anvil. Pressure forces the staple to bend and locks the pages together.
