What is a staple?

A staple is a thin piece of wire with bent ends that when put through a staple gun will fasten papers together, the ends are sharp so pierce the paper and the stapler bends the wire over so it secures the paper. A Staple consists of teeth crown and leg, the teeth puncture the paper and the leg folds behind the crown to secure the paper

Staples are made from steel wire usually plated with zinc, or metal

Staples come in different sizes and can differ in thickness too they are sized by their leg length commonly used staple sizes 13/8 13/6 24/8 24/6 26/6

Heavy duty sizes 23/8, 23/12, 23/15, 23/20, 23/24, 13/10 13/14.

Staple sizes

Staples normally have 2 numbers to define their size known as the the Gauge and the shank

For example 13/8

First number Gauge = wire diameter i.e. 13

Second number = Shank. This is the distance from the back of the staple to the tip of its leg i.e. 8
