This paper outlines the research, design and testing of a compliant staple gun style mechanism for use in a desktop model stapler. A survey of existing staple gun style desktop staplers is used to create target specifications to design the new compliant stapler. The initial proof of concept satisfies the primary function and user specifications. Future iterations of the mechanism will be tested and designed to be capable of performing the repeated iteration of long term stapler use.
