A Stapler That Doesn’t Need Staples

staplless stapler

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.

  1. 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.
