The 'Right Angle Stapler' by 42 Design was built to prevent frayed edges. Instead of the conventional staple with a single length of metal, the Right Angle Stapler has two lengths of metal positioned at 90 degrees. As a result, the staple runs along the corner of a stapled packaged which prevents ripped paper and frayed edges.

The stapler itself comes built to staple in the same place consistently. The plastic device wraps around the corner of a piece of paper in order to staple the same location every time.

Each orange stapler uses non-conventional staples. Since staples have already been standardized, introducing an entirely new staple may be a challenge. Adoption of the Right Angle Stapler would have to be extremely high for the product to be successful.
