Abstract

A staple stick loading device is shown for permitting a user to load a stapler magazine in only one manner which will assure proper stick loading and prevent staple jams. The loading devicedakes the form of a chute having a curved plate 1 and an angled plate 2 having a 45 bend opposite the curve in the plate 1. As a stick S of staples is manually loaded in the orientation shown in Figure l(a), the stick will slide down the chute with the legs of the stapler sliding against the angled plate 2. This permits clearance of the crown of the staples around the curved bend of plate 1, as shown in Figures l(b) and l(c).

ONE WAY STAPLE STICK LOADING FOR STAPLE MAGAZINES (Cont'd)

A staple stick loading device is shown for permitting a user to load a stapler magazine in only one manner which will assure proper stick loading and prevent staple jams.

The loading devicedakes the form of a chute having a curved plate 1 and an angled plate 2 having a 45 bend opposite the curve in the plate 1. As a stick S of staples is manually loaded in the orientation shown in Figure l(a), the stick will slide down the chute with the legs of the stapler sliding against the angled plate 2. This permits clearance of the crown of the staples around the curved bend of plate 1, as shown in Figures l(b) and l(c).

If the user inadvertently attempts to load the stick S in different orientation which will cause stapler jams, the stick will not enter the chute, as shown in Figures 2(a), 2(b) and 2(c). The spacing between the plates 1 and 2 is varied in accordance with the size of staples to be loaded.
