This flat clinch stapler features a half strip design while retaining all the stapling power of a full-sized stapler. It can staple up to 40 sheets of paper at once! Most standard staplers can only handle 20 sheets at a time. This unit also features a convenient flat clinch stapling style. Flat clinch staplers allow documents to lay in flatter, neater stacks. You can keep your papers organized and your desktop clean with the help of this compact stapler. Additionally, each unit opens a full 180 degrees for bulletin board use and features a non-skid, rubber base. Just add your Bostitch standard staples and you're ready to tackle all the stapling and filing projects ahead.
