Frequently Asked Questions

How do I fix a jammed stapler?

  1. Stick a pen, pencil, or any cylindrical object between the stapler’s throat and staple carrier.
  2. Press the stapler down to expel the jammed staple.
  3. Open the stapler and remove any broken or excess staples.
  4. If you can’t see the jammed staple immediately, pull the carrier away from the stapler’s throat to find the jam.
  5. Use a screwdriver, tweezers, scissors, pliers, or any sharp object, push the end of your tool beneath the hammer, loosen the jammed staple from the hammer, and push it up.
  6. Check if your stapler’s working properly by refilling it with compatible staples.

How do I open a stapler?

  • For top-loading staplers: Pull the top upward.

How do I put staples in a stapler?

How much does a stapler weigh?

An average plastic stapler weighs about 9 ounces, while a typical metal stapler weighs around 18 ounces.

Who invented the stapler? When was the stapler invented?

George McGill was awarded a US patent in 1866 for the first-ever stapler, which looks like a bendable brass fastener for paper—a forerunner of the modern stapler. In 1868, Charles Gould and Albert Kletzker received an English patent and a US patent for staplers, respectively. The inventor of the modern office stapler is Henry Heyl, who invented a device that can insert and clinch a staple at the same time.


From binder rings to tube clips, there are various types of fasteners used to keep documents organized. The most commonly used tool for joining papers together, which is found in virtually every office all over the world, is a stapler. This mechanical device normally consists of a handle, pusher, crimp area, anvil, and base. By driving a staple out of the device and through the sheets of paper, documents can be fastened in an instant.

Staplers of different kinds are available here on Engineer Warehouse. They have a steel-driven mechanism that ensures optimal performance, prevents jamming, and evenly clinches up to 50 sheets of paper. Some also feature three modes of stapling: namely permanent clinching, tacking, and temporary pinning. These modes can be set by simply rotating the staplers’ anvils. There are standard staplers that are commonly seen on office desks as well as staplers with long jaws to easily bind booklets. To flatten stacks of paper for easy storage, there are flat clinch staplers that can reduce the size of paper stacks. There are also staplers with top levers that can be extended to staple across desks with just one finger.
