A Stapler That Doesn’t Need Staples

staplless stapler

By David Ponce

It’s amazing just how much more things make sense when you have a video. This is not new tech, by any means. But, if you ask me, it should be.

The Lihit Number 5 stapler, made by Japanese company Lihit Industrial around 1986, does not use staples at all. Instead, it cuts and tucks a little flap of paper.

Fun stuff, eh? Come inside and check out the video.

    I’ve got one from the early 1960s – quite a timely article…

    They sell a new version at CB2 really cheap.

    yeah, this is an old idea, still really nice.

    to get one just search for ‘stapler without staples’ – they sell for about 10 bucks.
    (these small ones can only bind ~4 papers)

    you may find bigger similar devices on your local copy shop.
