The Powershot Stapler's Weak Spot


Readers Report

THE POWERSHOT STAPLER'S WEAK SPOT

You anointed the Black & Decker PowerShot stapler as a best new product ("Power Staples," The Best of 1993, Jan. 10). The PowerShot has a serious design deficiency: It will not accept a full clip of standard staples. At least 1/4 inch of the clip must be removed in order to place it in the stapler. Apparently, the designers of the PowerShot failed to take standard staples into account. Oh yes--Black & Decker does have its own staples, which no one stocks.

Editor's note: B&D says the design of the stapler's plunger is the cause.
