Introduction: Increase Stapling Depth of Your Stapler

About: Dream. Design. Make. Share.


Sometimes I want to Staple pieces of cardboard together but i can't because standard staplers have a short stapling depth.

In this short instructable, I will show you how I improved its design.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

  • A Stapler.
  • Cooking tweezers.
  • Double compound epoxy.
  • A masking tape.
  • Small metal saw.
  • A metal file.
  • A Glue clamp

Step 2: Cut and File the Stapler

Cut the stapler in 2 and file it with the metal saw, also from above and bottom to ensure that the epoxy sticks better.

Step 3: Glue It

Prepare the epoxy and spread a generous layer on the top and bottom of the stapler, then align the tweezers on it and clamp them together.

Optional but Important: You need to align the staple bender ( the metal piece on the bottom part of the stapler ) to the top part where the staples come so that when you staple them, they close correctly...if they don't align correctly, you 'll end up with a crocked stapler :D.

Let it dry for an hour or so.
