It’s just simple paper folding in the style of origami. This stapler eliminates the need for staples by first punching a hole in the paper, and then guiding the loose paper flaps through a narrow slot. Although the manufacturer states that you may bind up to ten sheets at once, I’ve found that the optimal number of pieces to bind is between two and five. Even though the use of a paper staple may not seem very secure, once the pages have been bound together, it is surprisingly difficult to separate them. Because there is no metal, you do not need to worry about accidentally clogging the machine if you put the whole paper through a shredder.

Product Review (as mentioned on the linked product’s website):

Glenn A. Crump (5.0 out of 5 stars): Exceeded Expectations

This little stapler is awesome at 1st use. It clipped through 7 pages like butter the 1st time I tried it. If you don’t read Japanese, recommend reading the reviews for instructions. There is a picture on the package showing how to staple but the instructions of another reviewer made it easy.

Side note, this stapler works well for printer/copier paper or thicker but beware on thin stock like newspaper clippings, it will shred them if you don’t have something with substance to staple it to.

Guess I’m buying a 2 pack now for the house and work.

GSM2 (5.0 out of 5 stars): Great safety device

“This is so simple and easy to use. I work in an environment where staples can be deadly, so this has been very helpful.”

Sarah (5.0 out of 5 stars): Attention all teachers!

This is a game changer.

No longer will you need to traipse to the store cupboard for staples only for them to jam your stapler mid flow.

This is a great design and the paper actually stays together.
