... Stapleless Stapler ...

Recommended Posts

This is a unique Stapleless Stapler.


Yes, a stapler that works without staples.


Its smallish ...



The back



Removed from its packaging.

Side view bearing the word "HARINACS"



Top view



The other side



Bottom bearing the KOKUYO imprint



How it works...

Insert the papers (max 5 sheets only)

There is a window to give you a view of how it punches and whether any residue paper is trapped in there.



Depress the lever handle

Remove and this is the end result.

The punch leaves a punch-out shape in the form of an arrow



What it does is fold that punched-out arrow back on itself and UNDERNEATH ...

Here is the backside view

The arrowhead has been tucked underneath, emerging from the backside



You can punch as many as you like and in whatever pattern





It can only punch 5 sheets of paper

but its adequate to hold it together for light use.






One advantage is that you can run it thru a shredder without having any staples in the way.


Pretty cool contraption.

Great review, I actually don't own one, but I use it once in a while at the office or one of my offices since I work at 5 different schools. It's a fun little contraption.

I have a this product from Deal Extreme. It's cut outs aren't as decorative but, functionally, it works the same. Putting two punches per set of papers improves the holding strength by reducing the sheets' twisting.

That is the same one I just received as gift from my daughter but in black. I have been using it in the office with good results.

I gave one to my wife a year or so ago. She loves it. The shape is a bit different. I believe I got it from MyMaido ...

This reminds me of the various origami tricks my students try when they forget to staple their papers. The origami tricks generally fail. How does the stapleless staple hold up when shuffling through the papers? The shredder advantage is cool, but the administration frowns on shredding student papers instead of grading them. (Although I have seen some that could be improved by the shredder...)

My mom had a unit like this that was from around 1900. It was all metal with a heavy base. Needless to say I crew up using that instead of staples. It is nice to see a modern take on it.

Do not let old pens lay around in a drawer, get them working and give them to a new fountain pen user.

I have something similar made by Paperlok. Works on the same principle and works very well. At work, we had to keep pages together as they went through a review process. Most of the time, revisions required the pages to be separated and then reattached. I stumbled upon this little marvel and was the envy of the outfit until most everyone got their own. They work well.

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
