A stapler is good for many things such as attaching pieces of paper into a stack or for craftwork. However, one of the things that it can’t do perfectly is to staple pieces of paper from the middle to create a book.

The reason why a normal stapler can’t be used to staple a stack of paper into a book is that usually its length is too short for the stapling head to reach the middle.

This is one cleverly designed stapler that removes the annoying obstruction, and allows one to staple pieces of paper any way without being limited by its length. With its detachable base, this allows the top section of the staple where the staple head is located to be placed anywhere on a stack of paper and the base to sit right below, allowing them to be stapled together for creating books.

A creative design for a stapler that improves on the design that has been hogging its predecessors.

The ‘Align’ stapler with detachable base retails for $9.99 from Quirky.
