You Probably Never Knew This About the Bottom of Your Stapler

They’re not incredibly complicated devices, yet they have one feature that so many people don’t even know about.

How often are you discovering that the things you use every day have hidden functions and abilities? Probably not very often. But, that’s what makes it so cool when you finally do figure it out.

For example, staplers. Yes, staplers. Chances are good that you’ve used a stapler at some point in your life, whether it was for creative purposes or to punch a pile of papers together. Or maybe you curiously stapled your thumb when you were a kid (like I did).

They’re not incredibly complicated devices, yet they have one feature that so many people don’t even know about. You probably know that it’s the metal piece on top of the bottom part of the stapler that curves that staple itself, allowing it to hook onto something once it’s been punched through. What you probably didn’t know is that you can push this metal piece upward and spin it 180 degrees to change the size of your staple hooks.

While this neat little trick isn’t some revolutionary new find, it is a cool piece of knowledge and something you might find yourself using somewhere down the line.
