Abstract

In a stapling apparatus, particles frequently contaminate the stapler. This often results in staple jams. In order to prevent this from occurring, stapling apparatus 10 has a bonnet 12 secured fixedly to the underside of core 14. This prevents particles from contaminating the staples of core 14. Preferably, bonnet 12 is a substantially thin, rectangular piece of sheet metal extended along the bottom opening of stapling apparatus 10.
