STAPLER
0 (N 1. Field of the Utility Model SThe present utility model relates to a stapler, and more particularly to a r- stapler that is laborsaving and will not turn over when the stapler is opened to install staples.
0 2. Description of RelatedArt o Staplers are common in offices and are used to connect separate documents or sheets of paper together. A large percentage of workers stapling 0 documents are female and may not have the strength required for continuous heavy stapling. When stapling documents, office workers must forcefully push the lever of the stapler to make the staple penetrate the sheets of paper or a document. After hundreds of times of stapling day after day, the workers experience aches and pains on the palms or in the fingers. Therefore, a laborsaving stapler has been developed and has a base, a magazine, a trigger assembly and an articulated assembly. The articulated assembly allows a user to staple paper sheets with less effort when compared to a traditional stapler.
However, the laborsaving stapler has a complicated structure and therefore has a high cost.
Moreover, inserting staples into the magazine of the laborsaving or traditional stapler requires pivoting the trigger assembly away from the magazine, which causes the laborsaving or traditional stapler to fall over.
To overcome the shortcomings, the present utility model provides a stapler to mitigate or obviate the aforementioned problems.
The main objective of the utility model is to provide a stapler that is COMS ID No: ARCS-158514 Received by IP Australia: Time 16:58 Date 2007-08-27 AU'G.27.2007 16:23 +61 8 83118300MAD NSR069P09 02 MADDERNS-R #0629 P.009 /027 2 o laborsaving and will not fall over when the stapler is opened to load staples in the Cl stapler.
;Z A stapler in accordance with the present utility model has a center of gravity and comprises a base assembly, a magazine assembly and a trigger assembly. The magazine assembly connects to the base assembly and has a cap.
o) The trigger assembly connects to the base assembly and has a trigger lever and a o) limiting lever. The limiting lever prevents the trigger lever and the cap from pivoting excessively to keep the center of gravity of the staple over the base c-I assembly.
Other objectives, advantages and novel features of the utility model will become more apparent from the following detailed description when taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings.
