Invention of Stapler

Here is the History of invention of Stapler.

The very first stapler is thought to have belonged to King Louis XV of France .The elaborate handmade staples were imprinted with the royal insignia and were used to fasten   together court documents. In 1868 Charles Gould a British   patient for a wire   stitcher  that could be used to bind magazines. His invention used    uncut wire that was  then cut to length , the pointed ends forced  through the paper and the ends folded down . The device was a direct predecessor of the modern stapler . In the United States in 1868 Albert  Kletzker pantended a type of paper clip that used a single large staple  to fasten together papers but did not crimp the ends which had to be  done   by hand  . The first machine was patented by Henry R. Heil in 1877.  The first commercially successful stapler was produced by George W. Mcgill from 1879 . Although the staples had to be loaded one at a time   the machine featured an anvil  that bent the ends of the staple back on themselves as it was  interested . The fixed anvil can be still be seen on modem staplers today .Improvements to the basic designs were made to enable  multiple staples to be loaded at once either in  the  form of strips or  singly . Eventually in the 1930s   manufacturers   produced strips of staples that were  glued together  in a herringbone series  alongside staplers that swung open allowing easy loading . Staplers are ubiquitous in officers worldwide a constant source of frustration to workers when they go missing from desks  . Staples have also found a us a use in surgery   as a replacement for sutures.
